A share is a piece of ownership in a company. When you own shares, you are considered a shareholder meaning you have a claim on a portion of the company's assets and profits.
Currently, Shares has over 1,500 stocks available for UK users.
At Shares, we value security and we assure you that your funds are safe.
While creating an account with us, you also open an electronic money account with our payment provider.
Your funds will be stored in this electronic money account, which you will use to place orders to buy a stock or receive funds after selling a stock.
Your electronic money account is protected under safety regulations applicable to e-money issuers, hence we reassure the safety of your funds.
Yes, if you own a dividend paying stock, Shares will credit your account on the company’s payout date.
To check if you have received a dividend payout recently, you can navigate to the “Activity” section, and you will be able to see your dividend payout. Likewise, you can access the dividend calendar to see when your next payout is due.
Yes, Shares have fractional shares meaning you don’t have to buy one whole share of a company. Instead, you can buy part of a share – so you could buy £1 worth of any stock.
