Certificated Share Dealing

Trade traditionally using paper share certificates with the Saga Share Direct Certificated Dealing Account. Exclusively for UK residents over 50, and operated for us by Equiniti Financial Services Limited.

Trade with paper share certificates

Choose our Certificated Dealing Account if you want to own actual share certificates, rather than having a broker (nominee) hold virtual online shares on your behalf. 

Shares are high-risk investments. Share prices and the income from them can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the full amount invested. Saga Share Direct doesn’t offer advice, so if you’re unsure whether handling your own investments is suitable for you, please consult a financial adviser.

To buy or sell, just telephone our team on 0800 015 2542 during UK stock market opening hours – Monday to Friday 8am to 4.30pm (closed bank holidays). After putting though your trade, you’ll receive or send your share certificates by post. See the simple steps in our guide to the Certificated Share Dealing Account.
