A ShareBuilder is an easy and cost-effective way for you to buy shares and gradually build up your portfolio. It's an easy way to trade – and you don't need to be a financial whizz either. Make the investments you want on set days – up to four times each month - for just £2 dealing commission per trade.

Please remember that the value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure about investing, seek independent advice.

No annual charges

We don’t have any annual admin charges on our ShareBuilder.


Open and rename up to 6 ShareBuilder accounts - a good way to put money away for something specific.

Low cost trading

You can set-up regular scheduled investments to buy shares for £2 dealing commission (usually £12.50 per online trade).

Why should I think about investing?

Investing can stop inflation eating into your cash savings as interest rates are currently at historic lows. It also allows you to build a nest egg or increase your passive income from dividend paying stocks.

You can set-up regular and scheduled investments from £20 each month, so you don’t need a large amount of money to start investing. When you set-up a regular investment in a ShareBuilder, we invest 100% of your money - even if that means buying part of a share. This means no leftover cash when you have asked us to invest it for you.

What can I invest in with a ShareBuilder

You can only buy shares listed on the London Stock Exchange - including AIM. This means you can buy or sell UK stocks, investment trusts and exchange traded funds (ETFs). Read more about our investment options
