Broker Reviews

Interactive Investor Review

The standout feature at Interactive Investor (ii), a major U.K. investment platform, is its low flat-rate fees. This is in contrast to other investment platforms, which typically favour percentage fees for fund investing, although more brokers are now opting for flat fees.

Trading 212 Review

Trading 212 is an investment platform that offers commission-free share dealing, making it a low-cost alternative to more traditional brokers. Investors looking for more diversification through mutual funds, another broker may be a better option.

eToro Review

EToro has among the lowest fees and best mobile app experiences of brokers we tested in the U.K. We believe eToro offers a great starting point for those new to stock trading, but does appear to be more suited to short-term traders rather than long-term investors.

AJ Bell Review

AJ Bell is one of the U.K.'s largest DIY investment platforms, offering a broad range of instruments. Charges are on the high side for those with large portfolios in mutual funds.

Hargreaves Lansdown Review

Hargreaves Lansdown provides a thorough selection of investment options, high-quality research, alongside an excellent mobile app. Conversely, pricing is expensive and charting tools are just average.

Interactive Brokers UK Review

Interactive Brokers is a sophisticated trading platform aimed at confident investors but also offers great value and resources for newer investors. We believe it’s certainly worth exploring the platform to see if you could save money or access more investments compared to other brokers.

Freetrade Review

Freetrade's low-cost, commission-free model allows trading of fractional shares with a user-friendly mobile trading app, and good-quality educational offerings. However, there is no online platform.

Elizabeth Anderson

Saxo Review

Saxo trading platform is highly sophisticated and is used by private, professional and institutional investors. The global trading platform offers a huge range of international shares and funds across 50 global stock exchanges. The biggest downside is the cost, as its charges are significantly higher than its U.K. competitors.
