To find a right broker for share dealing, we spent seven months and hundreds of hours of assessing 12 different share dealing brokers based in the UK. Here, we will focus on two brokers and compare DEGIRO vs IG Group.

Our comparison begins with the fees charged for dealing shares in the UK and being a client. The two main charges to focus on include the cost to place each trade alongside the monthly, quarterly, or annual management fee charged (varies depending on the type and size of your portfolio). We researched both to provide a single star rating for cost. Both DEGIRO and IG Group are rated 4.50 stars.

Account charges aside, we can now compare features and tools investors want in their share dealing accounts. Access to the investments is important, and IG Group offers clients ISA, SIPP and Spread Betting while DEGIRO offers none of these. Also, some investors require a high-quality charting experience, so the number of drawing tools and total technical indicators made available, as well as stock alerts, are considered. IG Group boasts an offering of 19 charting tools compared to DEGIRO's 0 available charting tools. DEGIRO trails IG Group by 3 total different indicators (for example, moving averages), with IG Group offering 26 and DEGIRO offering 23. IG Group offers basic stock alerts while DEGIRO does not. Lastly, for researching mutual funds while share dealing, being able to view a research report can be helpful. DEGIRO nor IG Group offers fund research reports.

Overall, between DEGIRO and IG Group, IG Group is the winner.
