    If i invest with one of the three stock & shares companies does it work exactly the same as an investment in a bank or a building society?

    Yes. But I'm not sure if that's what you mean. You wouldn't normally use a bank for investments as they're not competitive with high fees and tend to offer very restricted choice of funds to invest in.

    Did you think it was like a cash deposit account?
    Remember the saying: if it looks too good to be true it almost certainly is.
