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 805 share dealing customers was carried out in December 2022.

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 ratings

★★★★★ — Excellent
★★★★★ — Good
★★★★★ — Average
★★★★★ — Subpar
★★★★★ — Poor
Our customer satisfaction scores (“Customers say”) are based on a survey of 805 customers carried out in December 2022.

All investing should be regarded as longer term. The value of your investments can go up and down, and you may get back less than you invest. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. If you’re not sure which investments are right for you, please seek out a financial adviser. Capital at risk.
