Alex O 👍
Accessible, UK based, helpful customer services and easy to navigate the system.
Some charges and costs are no longer optimal and have been undercut by new players and digital only platforms.
Christian G 👍
Digital platform is easy to use, biggest range of funds available, customer service is decent. It was recommended to me due to their great base in the UK.
Digital platform still needs more work to make it even easier to use. Customer service should be enhanced to keep me updated as to how my investments are performing.
Jonty R 👍
Really good discounted fees on a number of funds, nullifying the initial charge.
Aesthetically pleasing digital proposition which makes execution very slick and easy.
£11.95 price to open or close a standard stock position which now compares to fee-free trading from some new brokers!
Easier access and ability to fill out US tax forms which have to be completed to invest in US shares.

It's very transparent to use (fees, etc), and offers great 'Multi-Manager' funds to lower your risk if you're not a seasoned investor. These funds more often than not perform well and are managed efficiently. This is a great platform for those who know something about investing, but have little time to give to it.
I think the user experience could be better. I would like to see short pop-up descriptions next to the more complicated breakdowns of yields, etc. Perhaps a bit more basic 'multi-manager' like options would be helpful too for the unseasoned investor.

It's quick to use. You can do most things online. You can easily access current stock prices and trends.
It’s expensive for more than the most basic of services, and it can take a while for the paperwork to be processed.
Ben L 👍
Easy to use, especially because they have a mobile app, which lets me log in quickly on the go.
They should have more phone notifications, so that you know the price of a stock due to an alert.

It works on your phone, you can read analysis in the same place, it has fingerprint login, you can invest in stocks directly or buy funds on the same portal, ISAs are available through them, it tracks your overall portfolio performance.
Their fees are quite high.
I'd like to know what would have happened if I had made various trades at certain points.
I don't always trust their advice that comes from marketing activities.
£11.95 per trade; volume discounts
