After seven months and hundreds of hours of researching 12 different share dealing brokers, the UK.StockBrokers.com team collected thousands of data points. To focus on two brokers, we will now compare DEGIRO vs Halifax.

First, we will compare the fees charged for dealing in the UK. There are two primary fees: the cost to place each trade and the monthly, quarterly, or annual management fee charged which varies depending on the type and size of your portfolio. We researched both to provide a single star rating for cost. DEGIRO received a rating of 4.50 stars over Halifax's 4.00 stars.

Cost aside, we can now compare popular features and tools investors prefer. Access to the investments you want is important, and Halifax provides its clients with ISA and SIPP while DEGIRO provides clients access to none of these. Next, some traders desire robust charting, so the number of drawing tools and total technical indicators made available, as well as stock alerts, are considered. DEGIRO trails Halifax by 1 total charting tools, with Halifax offering 1 and DEGIRO offering 0. DEGIRO trails Halifax by 20 total different indicators (for example, moving averages), with Halifax offering 43 and DEGIRO offering 23. Halifax has basic stock alerts, DEGIRO doesn't. Finally, for researching funds while share dealing, having access to mutual fund research reports is also helpful. Neither offers fund research reports.

Overall, between DEGIRO and Halifax, DEGIRO is the winner.
