What is Barclays Stockbrokers?
Barclays Stockbrokers is a division of Barclays Bank PLC and one of the UK’s largest execution-only retail brokers. This means that it doesn’t offer financial advice, but provides an investment service for customers who feel confident enough to make their own investment decisions. Remember, the value of investments can fall as well as rise, so you could get back less than you invest. We can’t offer advice, so if you’re not sure, seek independent advice.
What is Barclays direct investing?
We recently launched Barclays direct investing, our new self-directed investing service, which is replacing Barclays Stockbrokers. It’s designed to help you make your own investment decisions so you can achieve your financial goals. Whether you want to generate income or grow your savings, you’ll find an investment account and a wide range of investment opportunities to suit your needs. Bear in mind that investments can fall as well as rise, so you could get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure whether investing is right for you, seek independent advice.
