    Barclays, Selftrade, iWeb for S&S ISAs 17th Apr 18 at 5:11 PM
    We are happy with our SIPP provider (HL). We want to consider a different provider for our S&S ISAs. The tables in Monevator have encouraged me to consider three: Barclays, Selftrade, iWeb.

    I see that the first two have had a panning on the internet for the quality of their software. Has anyone here any recent experience to report or observations to make?

    Well I recently transferred my S&S ISA account from Fidelity to iWeb and I'm more than happy with the software. It goes without saying that at a one off cost of 25 its great.

    I only have Investment Trusts, ETF's or individual shares - no funds.
    I have had an account with Selftrade for years and have had no real problems. There was a minor problem with the last software change on how the layout looked but reducing the browser screen scaling on my laptop solved it.
    I have read that Barclays has had major problems with its Smart Investor so would not recommend them - fortunately I moved my account from Barclays to the Halifax just prior to the Smart introduction to avoid the increase in charges.
    The Halifax, which I believe is identical to iWeb, apart from the branding, has been fine for me with no problems. It will soon be a year since I moved to the Halifax.
    So I am happy with both Selftrade and the Halifax.

    I have a Selftrade S&S ISA but I've done no buying or selling for a while. I will say that when I check up on my holdings it is slow. Not terminal but definitely slower than it was before the website was updated. Other than that it is functional enough.

    To add. I prefered the look of the old site. The new site appears to have been designed to look better on smartphones. Then again, haven't they all.
