Use the free educational guides below to help you improve your understanding of our products:
When you open an account, one of our account managers can call you to talk through the basics of how to use our platform and how to set up and fund your account.
Once you’re set up, our 24-hour client services team is available to offer ongoing help and support.
*If your share dealing account is accessible under the same login as your active spread betting or CFD account, you can qualify for our lowest commission rate if you have placed at least one spread bet or CFD trade in the same calendar month as your application. If you apply for share dealing in the month following a trade in an existing account you will not receive this rate during your first month where both accounts are active, but will do so in the months following.
