A few years ago there was a shares portfolio tool on that our customers ask about on a regular basis. The original tool was jointly provided with a partner and enabled customers to track shares and fully manage a share investment portfolio. Here is some more information about share portfolio tools.


There are a number of companies passionate about investments and with years of experience dealing stocks and shares. Some even have a reputation for being plain speaking, with fair value and offering quality advice.

An online share portfolio can empower you with investment tools that meet your needs. Whether it’s objective insight into a particular investment type, market analysis, tips on investing or general advice, they offer a simple way to find investment ideas suited to your aims.

Sharing the knowledge and experience is important to look for in an online share portfolio tool. So, whether you’re new to investing or an experienced trader, you really do want your provider to have a wealth of free information and resources to help you make better informed decisions about your investments.
