What is a Joint Trading account?

A Joint Trading account is a share dealing account controlled by two named individuals. It allows the account holders to trade shares, investment trusts, ETFs and more, with share certificates registered in both names.

The Joint Trading account gives access to our full range of investment options. There is no limit on the amount you can contribute annually, and you can withdraw funds at any time.

Advantages of a Joint Trading account

✔   Simplified portfolio management

✔   Easy for both account holders to access

✔   Certificate share holdings registered in both names can be deposited
