What is Barclays Smart Investor?

The value of investments can fall as well as rise and you could get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure about investing, seek independent advice.

Barclays Smart Investor is designed to help you make your own investment decisions so you can achieve your financial goals. Whether you want to generate income or grow your savings, you’ll find an investment account and a wide range of investment opportunities to suit your needs.

While we don’t give advice, our principles of investing are there to guide you through your investing journey and help make you a smarter investor. If you’re unsure about anything, you should seek independent advice.

  • Our cutting edge, user-friendly platform, making it easy to execute trades
  • Access to essential tools and resources to help you become a smarter investor
  • Your investment accounts and bank accounts conveniently in one place
  • Our support team on hand to help with any questions, over the phone or through live web chat
  • Transparent and straightforward fees so you can see exactly what your investments will cost you
  • Just £4 per month covers all the costs of running your accounts, excluding transactions, plus holdings of up to £48,000
