Barclays Stockbrokers
Price Improver®

Barclays Stockbrokers Price Improver® gives you the best price available from our selected Retail Service Providers (RSPs) every time you trade.

We use our selected RSPs also known as ‘market makers’ to source market prices and we then offer you the best price available. The difference between the price we offer you and the London Stock Exchange (LSE) quoted price is the price improvement.

What determines an improved price?

The value of price improvements depends on a number of factors:

  • The particular stock you’re buying or selling
  • The number of RSPs offering a price
  • The volatility of the market at the time of trading
  • The time of day when the trade is placed
  • The size of the trade you’re placing.

Remember:

  • The value of your investments can fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you initially invested.
  • Investing is not for everyone, if you are unsure please seek independent advice.
