  • Government bonds, corporate bonds and permanent interest bearing shares (PIBS) These can be bought and sold by calling our dealing services team on 0345 37 33 479. The dealing charge for these investments is £9.95.

  • Warrants and covered warrants When dealing in warrants and covered warrants for the first time, you'll need to complete an online test about your understanding, experience and knowledge. You're not able to hold warrants and covered warrants in ISAs.

  • Exchange traded commodities ETCs are like ETFs, but they track a commodity rather than an index. They are widely available to be bought and sold online.

Which investments you choose will depend on your personal investment strategy, goals and appetite for risk. You can find out more about the different risks involved in different investments on our investment risks page.
