Finder Investing Customer Satisfaction Awards 2024

Find out the investing platforms that customers love based on our latest survey of 750 users.

Welcome to the Finder Customer Satisfaction Awards 2024

Our awards are decided by the only votes that really matter – yours. We asked customers of all the major investing platforms to tell us about their experiences. Now we can reveal which share dealing platforms were rated the best for customer satisfaction.

The winners

The winning and highly commended companies were decided with both their overall customer satisfaction scores (star ratings out of 5) and their recommendation scores (the percentage of survey respondents who would recommend the brand to a friend). Read more on our methodology and see our full results below.

Now without any further ado, here are this year’s winners.

Customer satisfaction ratings methodology

We asked people who’d used a share dealing platform within the previous 12 months to rate their satisfaction with the service they received and whether they’d recommend the provider to a friend. Our independent survey of 750 share dealing customers was carried out in December 2023.

We have shown both survey results for the brands listed in the table above and used these ratings to decide the winners of our awards. Where there was a draw on the satisfaction star rating, we used the “would recommend” percentage as a tie-breaker.

Share dealing scores

★★★★★ — Excellent
★★★★★ — Good
★★★★★ — Average
★★★★★ — Subpar
★★★★★ — Poor
Our customer satisfaction scores (“Customers say”) are based on a survey of 750 customers carried out in December 2023.
