Telephone Trading

Speak to experienced and friendly people in our dedicated contact centre to trade in most shares listed on the London Stock Exchange and on 17 live international markets.

Trading by telephone gives you the benefit of longer payment options: you can settle up to twenty working days later. This means that when buying you can sell those shares before payment is due, so you only have to pay the difference in price or receive the balance owing to you.

Please note, commission charges for telephone trading are higher than online trading commissions. See our rates and charges.
