Our share dealing service
Link Asset Services allows you to buy and sell shares in a large number of companies that have Link as their registrar.
Additionally UK, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man residents can trade in other UK companies that Link does not act as the registrar for, please see 'Dealing in UK stock' for further details.
It's easy to use
If you own shares in one of the companies we act as Registrar for, we already know who you are so there's no need to pre-register, no complicated forms to fill out and you can start trading straight away.
Three simple ways to trade
You can trade online or over the telephone. It's all secure and help is at hand to take you through the process step by step.
You can also use our Generic Postal Dealing Form to sell single or multiple holdings and have your sale proceeds securely transferred to your bank account. You can download the Generic Postal Dealing Form here.
Real time dealing
You will get the current market price each time you trade, as well as immediate confirmation once you’ve traded.
Place Limit Orders
A Limit Order allows you to take advantage of a price increase without having to constantly monitor the market. Once the price you set has been reached, your shares will automatically be sold. Special risks apply to these types of trades – read our risk warning for more information.
