“The Share Centre”

published 26/06/2010

low cost sharedealing

exercise your sharedealing with caution, high risk

Boring, boring, this is not boring, it is money. My fascination of buying shares started when I was first 16 and I told my dad to buy shares on my behalf. I won a few quid back during the early to mid 1990's, and invested in this area until I went to University in 1999. I avoided all forms of...

Low commission rates

None

The Share Centre's promotional leaflet claims to offer one of the easiest and cheapest ways to buy and sell shares. For the small private investor, I would certainly agree. I was attracted by their low minimum charge as a I only had a few windfall shares to sell, and did not want to pay a high...

“Share Centric”

published 01/05/2003

Inexpensive way to learn share trading

Poor access at times

The Share Centre became possible as a result of the cities "Big Bang" in 1986, but initially came to prominence at the height of the dotcom and demutualisation era in the late 1990's, cashing in on the Building Society demutualisations of the period. It has managed to survive the clear out since...

“Very Good Cheap Service”

Low Trading Costs

Limited daily trades

I Have used this company for over a year. When I first started buying shares I used Baraclays Stockbrokers but i found the costs were excessive as I was only trading in a few hundred pounds. Then I found the Share Centre in Tring. They only charge £2.50 plus stamp duty on a buy. The only draw...

“The Shar Centre”

user friendly

not real time

I like the ease at which you can communicate with the share centre, through phone, post, email for instance. YOu can leave instructions for them and set limit prices for buying and selling. And their prices are reasonable especially when you buy their own shares. Share centre shares are currently...

“Cheap is not always best”

published 07/12/2000

cheap

inflexible

The Share Centre is the cheapest UK broker for dealing charges . But that is no good if you can't deal when you want to . At best it is very frustrating . At worst it can cost you money . They only deal three times at nine am , one pm, and four pm but in between these times the prices can have...

I signed up with the Share Centre a couple of months ago simply because of their very attractive rates. They are by far the cheapest online share dealer around and I thought that I would take advantage of this to save a few quid. Share Centre currently charge 1% on every trade they make but their...

“The Share Centre”

Low commision, easy to use

Fixed dealing times

I have been using The Share Centre on-line service for about a year now. As I had never bought or sold shares before, I did a lot of research into various stockbrokers, shares, on-line facilities and so.. For a small time investor who is dealing in hundred's of pounds rather than thousand's the...

“Cheap and Cheerful”

published 29/07/2000

Cheap

Limited trading oppurtunities

The Share Centre or share.co.uk as you might know it better as is unique within the on-line broker business, why? Because I have yet to find anywhere where you can deal for such a small commision. It costs just 2.50UKP to buy shares...you can buy just one if you want! and only 7.50UKP to sell...

“Buy shares cheaper”

published 03/10/2000

cheapest prices available in the UK

Restricted dealing times

I would urge small private investors to consider purchasing their shares from a company called THE SHARE CENTRE LTD. They were formed around seven years ago with the intention of being acessable to the smaller investor rather than the big institutions which many stockbrokers are aimed at. The...

“Superb!”

published 28/07/2000

Reasonable commission for small players

Three dealing times

The Share Centre is my favourite online broker. The commission structure is very reasonable especially if you are investing just a small amount. The online dealing is not confusing even though there are not many facilities compared to other online brokers, but if you know your stuff you should...

They look like a 'home-business'

I have been a Share-Centre customer for over two years and I am very happy with the level of service, informative newsletters, regular balance sheets and most importantly, low-cost. I even received free shares when they floated! From only £2.50 (or 1% of transaction value), you can now execute...

Some online technology pitfalls

Having contacted The Share Centre after seeing their advertisement in the Daily Express. You will find a number of benefits from this service. On enquiry, you will find that their sharedealing promotional leaflets are well written, clear and very concise. Share Centre says it offers one of the...

“Pay for a quality service”

published 07/06/2000

Cheap

No real-time prices

Experience suggests that the Share Centre provides a useful service for small, first-time investors. However, as the stakes get higher you may be best off elsewhere unless the service improves. sharecentre.com provides the facility to buy and sell shares at extremely competitive prices (1%...
