How do I open an account?

Simply complete the online application form on the site and we will then process your application, taking just a few minutes to complete. We use an identity checking tool which references the Electoral Roll, BT telephone list and other databases to confirm your identity to satisfy the UK's Money Laundering regulations.

We would only need to ask for documentary proof of identity if we are unable to verify your identity via a credit search.

If you pass the on-line identity check, an account number is confirmed immediately to you. If you fail the identity check we simply ask you to send documents proving your identity and this takes a few days to confirm account details to you.

If you need any help completing the application form, please call 020 7382 8384 for assistance from a member of our New Account team.

Do I have to have money on account to trade?

We can offer an immediate trading facility limit up to £5,000 to start you off with us without any cash or stock with us and then after that limits of lending by negotiation with your broker based on any cash or stock held with us.

What extra services will I get?

As an advisory client you are allocated your own individual broker and access to them via their direct line.

Additionally, as an advisory clients we offer you the chance to participate in principal dealing on small caps at better than best execution prices.

Why do I have to send in ID documentation?

All financial services providers are required by UK and EU rules and regulations to identify each person that opens an account. Our online application form does this electronically and over 80% of applicants are successfully identified without the need to send in hard copy, paper documentation.

If we cannot locate you electronically or if you open an account using a paper application we will need identification forms from you to allow us to open an account for you.
