Barclays Price Improver

Barclays Price Improver™ gives you the best price available from our selected Retail Service Providers (RSPs) every time you buy or sell shares, Exchange Traded Funds, investment trusts or Real Estate Investment Trusts on the London Stock Exchange.

Every time you place an order within a Barclays Smart Investor account, we go the extra mile to make sure you’re getting the best available price. Through our Price Improver, 90% of qualifying deals1 placed between April 2017 and April 2018 got a better price than the quoted price on the London Stock Exchange (LSE).
