Available sharedealing accounts

The types of accounts on offer reflect the different ways in which you may wish to hold your assets:

  • Nominee account – this is offered to individual and joint and entity applicants, and is appropriate for clients who want to regularly deal over the telephone or online. Nominee-assets are held electronically on your behalf; and
  • Certificated account – this is only available to UK residents who are individuals or joint applicants, and want to deal by telephone. It is also appropriate for those who want to hold their own share of certificates.

Buying and selling shares with Stocktrade

As the execution-only branch of Brewin Dolphin Ltd, Stocktrade will not provide you with any investment advice. If you are unsure about the suitability of this service we suggest you discuss with a financial adviser specialising in this area. As soon as you have selected your chosen account, and registered, you can start buying and selling shares.
