Individual Shares Comparison

Spread betting on individual shares gives you the chance to trade on thousands of different companies listed around the world. It is a fantastic alternative to share dealing as it is tax free. This type of spread bet trading is similar to trading on indices. You are betting your stake per point movement on the price of a share.

If you want to trade individual shares then look at the comparison table below: compare the spread, the margin and minimum stake required by each company. Many people simply look for the tightest spreads for individual shares, however, we encourage traders to check out the best margin rates and always, always trade with a minimum stake that suits your budget and your experience.

Once you are happy that you have the best deal for you, simply click on the ‘apply’ link and it will bring you straight through to open an account.
