Certificated share dealing

The Share Centre has won a number of awards for high- quality customer service. They also offer additional benefits including accepting debit cards and emailing your paperwork, such as contract notes for trades and CREST transfer forms.

Barclays Smart Investor does not offer a certificated share dealing service. Following an extensive review of other providers, we believe The Share Centre offers an established alternative which you may want to consider using to buy and sell share certificates.

You can read about The Share Centre’s certificated service, including their pricing, by visiting their website. Any investments that you acquire through this service will involve the same risks as investing with us - their value can fall and you may get back less than you invest.
