Halifax Share Dealing

The Halifax Share Dealing is the Halifax (part of Lloyds Banking Group) DIY investment and share-dealing platform. It offers ISA, general investment accounts and pensions.

It’s cheap as chips but comparatively clunky although Lloyds is making some huge investment into the platform.

It is available to banking customers only. For non-bank customers, it runs iWeb.

Our review of Halifax Share Dealing

We have mixed feelings about the investment platform from Halifax. As one of the high street banks, you do get peace of mind from its size and stability. But you can find that elsewhere too, so it’s difficult to say what makes Halifax Share Dealing stand out.

The website feels very old-school – a relic of the years when there wasn’t so much competition in the market.

Is Halifax Share Dealing a good platform for beginners?

There isn’t much support for beginners and the tools available can be a bit complicated. That being said, if you understand how to use them, they do offer a great level of detail.

Is Halifax Share Dealing expensive?

At £9.50 a trade, this is definitely not for smaller portfolios. Still, it’s not the worst out there. Some investors will be happy here.
