Our UK.StockBrokers.com team spent seven months and hundreds of hours assessing ten different share dealing accounts for buying shares online in the UK. In total, 124 individual variables were assessed. For this review, we will compare DEGIRO vs Hargreaves Lansdown.

To start this comparison, first, we will take a look at the fees charged for dealing in the UK. It's important to note that not only is there the cost to place the trade, but most share dealing brokers also charge a monthly, quarterly, or annual management fee depending on the type and size of your portfolio. We assessed both to provide a single star rating for cost. DEGIRO's score is 4.50 stars versus Hargreaves Lansdown's 3.50 stars.

Cost aside, we can now turn our focus to popular tools and features investors prefer in the UK.
