Three easy ways to invest
1. Investment platforms and fund supermarkets
A range of online platforms and fund supermarkets allow you to trade online, manage your portfolio and buy UK-listed shares. These sites do not give you advice, they simply allow you to trade. Many of these sites also offer ‘wrapper’ products like ISAs and pension plans.
Many websites ask for a stock exchange ticker code to identify individual companies, which for Securities Trust of Scotland STS (or STS.L if the site allows dealing in international equities).
