Finally got round to logging into the new Interactive Investor (II) site, following its takeover with TD Direct.
I have my ISA with II, so a decent site with low charges and good Inv Trust support is important
Some initial views
It’s not clear how you access you previous trade history on the site, and details of recent dividends paid during the transition period. Though all my holdings seem t have been moved correctly
The regular investment option (though cheaper at £1 deal) seems much worse, the range of ITs on option seems much more limited than previously -not as bad as HL FTSE 350 only, but the previous site would let you choose pretty much anything, including subscription shares. It also looks like the money has to be paid in by monthly direct debit rather than the previous site which would let you use any of the balance on the account. Often after I had sold a share, I would re-invest the proceeds using the monthly dealing.
Not sure I like having shares and funds on separate tabs.
Would be keen to get views from other uses, don’t really want to transfer as my experience of changing providers has been pretty rubbish (still waiting for HL and ATS to finalise a SIPP transfer for example).
