Certificated share dealing
In 2015, we reviewed the service we offer and decided to change our certificated share dealing service. We now no longer offer this service. Instead, we reviewed alternative providers and identified The Share Centre as a company with an established certificated share dealing facility which can also provide a number of improvements compared to the services that we provided. You may want to use their services instead.
About The Share Centre
The Share Centre has won a number of awards for high quality customer service. You’ll also see additional benefits including:
- The option to pay by debit card
- The option of having your paperwork, such as contract notes for trades and CREST transfer forms, sent to you by email instead of post
You can read all about The Share Centre’s certificated service, including their pricing, by visiting their website. Any investments that you acquire through this service will carry similar risks to those that you would have encountered when trading through us: their value can fall and you may get back less than you invested.
Please note that Barclays will receive a share of the commission from your trade activity. You’ll be given the details when you register with the Share Centre and you can also find them on their website at www.share.com/certificated
