We have seen from the popularity of IPOs and share dealing generally that there is a growing appetite for share research. As the largest investment supermarket in the UK and largest retail stockbrokers we aim to provide all our clients with the best information whether shares, funds, passives, ETFs, or investment trusts. Clients value our expertise as well as our service.”
