Can I open an account online?


You can open an individual MarketMaster®, SIPP account or Investment ISA online.

To open account today go to our Accounts homepage, select the account you wish to open and select 'Apply now' from the top right of the screen.

We will carry out identity checks as part of the short online application process. We will also ask you to choose a password of between 8 and 15 alphanumeric characters.

As soon as you have successfully opened your account online, you will be given a User ID which, along with your chosen password, will allow you immediate access to the secure area of our site, including our award-winning research.

To complete your online application, and receive full account privileges, we may need you to send us additional documentation. For instance, if we have been unable to successfully verify your identity, address or bank account details during the online application, we may also ask you to send us further documents.

If you incur any problems please give us a call on 0800 279 6551 / 0141 352 3909.
