For investments in the UK we often see the brand of Hargreaves Lansdown appearing. With this we decided to give them a try and invest through their platform. As we are recent newbies to investing, everything has been a learning curve. From the website H&L have been around for nearly 40 years helping UK investors with decision and planning. They currently control over $60 billion wort of investments and have close to 800,000 clients.
We decided to create an account through their web platform which was extremely easier to do. Within minutes we had options on what to invest on. With over 2,500 funds and the ability to invest in bonds, gilts, trusts H&L really does cover it all. As tax season is close by the ability to invest in ISAs is also a great benefit to choosing H&L SIPP (Junior ISAs and Junior SIPPs are also available).
