Halifax Share Dealing Review: A Great British Bank Left To Fester

Home > Reviews > Halifax Share Dealing Account Review

I visited Halifax’s offices in Leeds many years ago. At the time they wanted us to create some videos on how to invest in bonds. But since then, I haven’t really heard about them. Halifax doesn’t advertise share dealing, I think they must be more focussed on mortgages. This is odd, because they are one of the biggest share dealing platforms in the UK.

Halifax Share Dealing

Name: Halifax Share Dealing

Description: Halifax Share Dealing is an established (but dated) platform that lets you invest in UK and international shares, bonds and funds in a range of accounts including GIA, ISA and SIPPs.

Is Halifax Share Dealing any good?

I would say that Halifax is a good share-dealing platform if you are already a customer of Halifax Bank, but I wouldn’t recommend it as a stand-alone platform. Purely from an aesthetics point of view it is very dated, plus there is no app, plus the exchange rate fee of 1.25% for buying international shares is quite high (even though the usual £9.50 dealing commission is waived). If Halifax want to attract new, younger customers they need a serious upgrade.
