About The Share Centre
The Share Centre was established in 1991 to give more people the chance to invest in the wealth of the stock market by making dealing in shares, funds and other investments, straightforward. We act mainly as an execution-only stockbroker, which means we carry out our customers' instructions to buy and sell investments.
In 1996, we introduced one of the lowest-ever minimum commissions for buying shares: just £2.50. It remains the same today.
In 2003, we launched the Shares4Schools competition. Endorsed by the Personal Finance Education Group (pfeg), this unique competition brings Economics and Business Studies to life as teachers and students invest real money in stock market shares.
