Share Dealing - UK - October 2012
“Many UK adults still view sharedealing as the preserve of bankers in the City of London, or the highly affluent. Due to this prevailing attitude there are certain misconceptions regarding sharedealing, mainly towards the risk and complexity of equity-based investing. Although sharedealing is most certainly a higher risk strategy than keeping money in a savings account or cash ISA, the vast amount of information online means investors have plenty of resources to help shape their decisions and educate themselves about the market. In terms of complexity, trading actual shares has never been more simple or accessible. With the rise of mobile applications, traders can now execute transactions on the go in order to capitalise on any market movements or news. ”
