Enjoy safe investing with The Share Centre

The Share Centre Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and is a member of the London Stock Exchange. As such, we must fulfil all the relevant regulatory requirements of an investment firm and all retail customers receive the maximum regulatory protection under FCA rules.

All investments held on behalf of our customers are registered either in the name of Share Nominees Limited, which is a bare trustee nominee company or, in the case of certain unit trusts and open-ended investment companies, in a Nominee Company owned by Cofunds Limited.

The Share plc Group, including The Share Centre, is wholly focused on the needs of its customers and does not take any principal trading position. Settlement exposure is kept to a minimum and the Group does not offer spread-betting facilities. One of our core values is ‘Long Term Stability’, and treating the safety of customer assets and the security of their data as paramount is a key priority in this respect.

What would happen if The Share Centre went bust?

Because customer investments are held in a separate company to The Share Centre, in the unlikely event that The Share Centre was placed in administration, your investments would be safely ring-fenced and held on trust for you. Your investments are also covered up to the value of £50,000 by the provision of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), this is in addition to the protection provided under the FSCS for cash balances.
