“IWeb Share Dealing: Poor ISA Transfer & No accountbility”

Written on: 29/11/2018 by ivSloan486 (1 review written)

We (myself and my wife) use Iweb share dealing for its lower transaction fee. Though it has agreed to transfer our Self Select ISAs from Interactive Investor, it took unusually long time, was incomplete and we being penalised in connection with corporate actions. Once agreed to transfer, instead it chasing Interactive Investor for complete transfer of the account, we were forced to check again and again about transfer of some shares and cash and remind them. The customer service girls tellsq… Read Full Review

“vanilla all around - but nice and cheap, and reliable”

Written on: 25/04/2018 by Jingleman (1 review written)

A good basic service. The main issue is that not all ETFs that you read about in the media are available via the iweb platform. Neither are the staff motivated to suggest alternatives. Worse, I had been investing in one ETF that reduced in value; I tried to buy more shares but iweb had suspended that particular security. I had a problem with some poor service from an incompetent operator but I complained and the manager reviewed the recording of the phone call and paid me a small sum in… Read Full Review

“Great Value - very efficient”

Written on: 27/02/2018

I opened an account last year, and the switch from my previous broker was a little painful. I was also worried about the mixed reviews.... But now the account is up and running, it is super efficient and cheap. I love the low cost dealing and dividend reinvestment. Corporate actions are handled efficiently. It is a basic service, but very good value… Read Full Review

“Incorrect information from the company without solutions. ”

Written on: 22/01/2018 by Mrs.Legrand (1 review written)

I have called iWeb in December to sell my shares, While I was in the process I asked if I could transfer it to my husband instead. The person on the phone said yes. This information was incorrect the shares went out to my husband account and came back to me in a month period -WITHOUT ANY INFORMATION OR NOTE FROM IWEB- . I have ended without the possibility of selling my shares because of their unprofessional staff. The Iweb company does not have the correct knowledge how to deal with the new… Read Full Review

“Great value stockbroker”

Written on: 08/01/2018 by jezaustin (1 review written)

Been with IWEB about 18 years. Great value for money. I hold a stocks and shares ISA with Hargreaves Landson and it is not cheap to buy shares unless you are a frequent trader. I recommended IWEB to one of my friends because he does not trade often so he needs a basic, reasonably priced share trading platform. I have not bought any funds yet but I can see IWEB has a good range… Read Full Review

“I-Web Staff - Incompetent and/or Careless ”

Written on: 02/11/2017 by JuliusRobertson (1 review written)

I can only report on the aspect of transferring all my and my wife's investment funds from the Fidelity platform to I-Web - simply to avoid having having to pay the 0.2% annual charge for holding my investments with Fidelity, which is nearly £500 pa in my case (I rarely trade once I buy into a fund). I started the transfer requests for us on the 22nd August 2017, and as of the 2/11/2017 the process has not completed, with over 25% of our funds still sitting with Fidelity. The whole process has… Read Full Review

“IWEB TRADING EXPERIENCE”

Written on: 14/03/2017 by Hewitt133 (1 review written)

I have been using IWEB Share Dealing as my main broker since I started trading. They maybe don't have access to every market but for price and customer service this is the way to go. I recommend it to anyone who wants an easy to use and reasonably priced service… Read Full Review

“I guess it depends”

Written on: 04/02/2017 by MadelineMcCracken107 (1 review written)

I've always had good experience over the years with iWeb using both isa and sharedealing accounts. Easy online administration and positive chat experience. They were particularly good re some transfers. The few times I've had to telephone they have been helpful. From the reviews not all account holders have had such good experiences. I'm surprised… Read Full Review

“Don't touch with a bargepole”

Written on: 09/09/2016 by 231Jenkins (1 review written)

I have to agree with the other reviewers who say the service is dreadful. I recently placed an order to buy some shares with credit in my account. iWeb failed to execute the order saying there was insufficient credit in the account. It turned out they were looking at the wrong account. When I pointed this out they denied it and said the complaint was closed. It certainly wasn't closed from my perspective and I will take the matter up with the Financial Ombudsman. And yes I will look round for… Read Full Review

Having a bad experience similar to yours, The only thing the staff are training for is to close the complains before giving any solutions.

I have to tell them 3 times not to close the complain during a conversation. Still awaiting for a solution.

“Incompetent and I've used them for over 15 years!”

Written on: 21/04/2016 by veMcCleary190 (1 review written)

Its going to be time for me to close down all my portfolios and move away from this company. This was a company that prided itself on customer service and was reasonably innovative. Now I find myself dealing with factually incorrect responses all the time and rude and surly staff who continually contradict one another. This division of Halifax is tanking and these guys are steering the ship onto the rocks. Get your money out of this company run my incompetent fools now. They were cheap for… Read Full Review

“Never had a problem. Fast, simple and reliable”

Written on: 18/04/2016 by MakennaMacKenzie251 (1 review written)

Reading the reviews for this site I am gobsmaked how poor IWEB have been portrayed. I've been a member for 9 years and never had a problem buying or selling shares. I mainly stick to FTSE100 companies and buy and sell shares in the same company regularly. I've had periods where I've not touched the account for months/years and haven't had to pay an inactivity fee. I also buy and sell regularly and have money transferred in out and out with no problems. I would definitely recommend this… Read Full Review

“Avoid”

Written on: 20/11/2015 by Churchys287 (1 review written)

Used them for several years. Online trading in shares is fine. Little to go wrong. But where human involvement is required, I've increasingly found they're often not competent. It has the feel of public sector bureaucracy and inefficiency. Just some examples: several funds they offer can't be bought online due to some glitch. So you have to trade by phone. And they never get round to fixing the glitch let alone indicating the timescale. And they've taken forever to effect a transfer from… Read Full Review

“Get what you pay for”

Written on: 09/09/2015 by beDuggan330 (1 review written)

iWeb add up to two days to the settlement period. The asset's stated settlement begins up to two days after dealing date at iWeb. This means when you sell an asset that has a four day settlement period first thing Friday morning, you might not see the cash in your account until the Monday of the week _after_ next. That's 10 (ten) calendar days. Ridiculously long. During which of course iWeb are skimming the interest from their thousands of account holders. This was all confirmed by their… Read Full Review

“First class service”

Written on: 18/08/2015 by jhnplmr (1 review written)

I have been using this service for many years now, long before they charged a joining fee. I have never had any problems with obtaining an instant quote and they stick to the agreed price. It is easy to check your account and you can have dividends paid into either your IWeb account or straight into your bank. They email you if any notifications are received from the companies you have invested in and are prompt in any follow up required. I was amazed to find all these negative comments, my… Read Full Review

“Terrible”

Written on: 17/07/2015 by imst805 (1 review written)

I would say avoid at all costs! I've only been with them for about a year. You will never get the price you want. At crucial times it either gives you a poor price or goes to negotiated order. You will lose a lot of money with these people as I have. I've just about had enough of them. They're cheap for a reason… Read Full Review

“Transfers unbelievably slow - locked account when we moved”

Written on: 15/06/2015

My wife and I both opened accounts here to transfer our ISAs last year. As were planning to move overseas, I called and confirmed specifically that we would have no problem operating the account with a foreign address. Then, when I advised them of an address change, they froze the account, of course this was after they demanded the 25 quid opening fee. My wife simply cashed out her account, likewise after a 25 opening fee. I elected to transfer to another broker with no such weirdness, but… Read Full Review

should say "this has been ongoing on for months." I've transferred multiple pension and cash ISAs over the years--never has that taken more then a month. iWeb has one fund and cash...what is difficult here?

“Forced to sell at 20% below market”

Written on: 07/05/2015 by Kierra89 (1 review written)

I was using this site for a month or so and encountered issue that my trading partner hasn't had in years, on a different site! For example, iweb didn't give me an automated selling price for 20% of my shares! Which means that I can only opt for a negotiating order, that I have to take without seeing the actual selling price, which proved to be 25% lower than the trading price on that day (that remained unchanged)!!!! Iweb said NT price is beyond their control! Really...? Who did cash the 25%… Read Full Review

“worst of the worst”

Written on: 16/04/2015

I applied for a share dealing account in March 2015 and couldn't get it activated over a month and eventually account was closed instead of solving my issue and dealing with my complaint. First of all, they ask you to send original identity card e.g. Passport, Driving license another original proof of address which is not clearly stated in their letter for identity verification. I sent them an original bank statement and my foreign passport copy and received another letter asking me for a UK… Read Full Review

“good for the cost”

Written on: 12/03/2015 by Yasminf320 (1 review written)

I've been using the service for 2 years. At £5 a trade I t feel it's good value for the service provided. High availability / uptime of the site. Money transfers between iweb & bank performed in time scales they quote. News for shares good be more thorough, but this is available from plenty of other sites. I just noticed account opening fee increasing from £25 to £200, big increase, but a one off charge. Overall v happy with the service & would recommend, plus I feel happy this service is… Read Full Review
