Not found what you were looking for? Don’t forget there are many other ways to diversify your trading portfolio. Barclays Stockbrokers investment accounts gives you access to single stock equities, funds, bonds, new issues, Exchange Traded Funds and Exchange Traded Commodities.
New issues (IPO)Access investments before they trade on the market as either New Retail Bonds or Initial Public Offerings (IPOs). Investing carries a significant degree of risk. More about new issues.
Covered WarrantsGain leveraged exposure to a wide range of assets with Barclays covered warrants. A flexible alternative to traditional equity trading, Covered Warrants and Turbos give you the potential to magnify gains while limiting losses. Please be aware though that covered warrants are considered a high-risk asset; you can lose all the money that you invest. More about covered warrants.
Exchange Traded Funds (ETF)Easy-to-trade investment that makes tracking markets that little bit easier by following the performance of an index like the FTSE 100 or S&P 500. By purchasing units or shares in an ETF you can gain access to a whole country index or market through a single share holding. More about Exchange Traded Funds.
Exchange Traded Commodities (ETC)A popular way to diversify an existing portfolio, ETCs allow you to gain investment exposure to commodities such as gold and oil. Since you can trade them on the stock exchange, it is easy to move in and out of the market. More about Exchange Traded Commodities.
FundsProfessionally managed assets that can fit many investment goals. Barclays Stockbrokers offers access to around 2,500 funds from over 100 providers with no initial charges. More about funds.
Gilts and bondsCan earn you a predictable return at a low risk compared to shares. Gilts and bonds can reduce your overall risk, you can sell at any time and even get tax-free returns on gilts (and some other bonds). As long as you don’t buy high-risk bonds, your capital is generally safe. More about gilts and bonds.
Stocks and SharesEasy to buy and sell, Stocks & Shares can suit both long-term and short-term investment goals. The depth of choice available means you can grow your capital, earn regular income or both. More about stocks and shares.
