A shower of chancers
Review of Jarvis Investment Management by gray

Advantages: reasonably cheap
Disadvantages: terrible customer service

I became a Jarvis customer by default when they purchased the "execution only" business of CFA Securities (Sharenet) early in 2003. The customer service has since got to a level that I can no longer tolerate, which has brought its own problems. Gripes ... Read review

Marconi PEP
Review of Barclays Stockbrokers by charlesh

Advantages: Well known name

i know this was 3 years ago but i really feel i must comment. i know alot about the marconni pep you are talking about and its a ridiculous account that you should never have opened and your a fool to continue to operate it. its not barclays fault. peps are expensive to operate and if you insist on keeping it open im affraid your going to have to pay. this review should not be taken seriously. the marconi pep is an account that barclays stockbrokers continues to operate for people that insist on keeping it open. this account does not reflect the range of accounts barclays opperates. what i would suggest you do is open a self select maxi isa ask barclays to transfer the shares to this new account and close the PEP. you wont be charged any closure charge as you are staying with barclays. you will then be able to deal online with no problems. P.S. why did you insist on repeatedly trying to deal online when the terms and conditions clearly say its a telephone based dealing account with no online dealing oppertunities? by trixibell
I use Natwest. (See my op) I only deal in small amounts of shares but always find them very helpful - don't think I will be changing to Barclays! by numberthree

Sorry for the low rating but you left me with no end of questions, the most important of which being: what "above opinion" are you referring to? Let me know if you decide to revise this op and tell us about the service they give, how good they are at handling your portfolio, how easy are they to get in touch with, how little/much advice do they give you, etc. by TheChocolateLady
I dont know why but this sounds more like an advert than an opinion to me. Not only that but you have not written very much. I suggest you edit this opinion before your community points start to drop. !!! MERRY XMAS !!! by enterpriseonline

I know exactly what you mean! Their recently introduced account inactivity charge was the final straw for me. It is not the brightest charge to introduce when private punters are staying away from the market in droves. I've used Sharenet (also in Manchester) for about a year, and am transfering all TDW to them. Half the price too (£8 a trade for less than £1k)! Good luck. by gray
