5 Free Trades When You Open a Vantage Fund & Share Account
If you’ve been thinking about getting into investing for a while now but have yet to make the leap, then there are probably a few different reasons why. One of these reasons will likely be the fear of making the first trade, especially when you will have to pay out of your own money to do so.
As we discussed in a previous post about the minimum amount of money you should invest in shares, often times trading fees can eat up any profits from your initial investment, especially when you are only trading with small amounts of money. If you’re worried about this then you might be interested to know about an offer that is running over at Hargreaves Lansdown.
