Saga Share Direct’s dealing service was provided by Equiniti Financial Services Limited so when Saga Share Direct decided to move the service, it made sense to look to Equiniti’s self-investing platform.
EQi is dedicated to DIY investing, with products and resources designed to give customers what they need to grow and create income from their investments.
EQi is part of Equiniti, a FTSE 250 listed company. Equiniti manages and administers the shares for 70% of the FTSE 100 and interacts with 27 million shareholders and pensioners.
Crucially, EQi is fully authorised and regulated by the FCA. We hold all customer assets are held separately to ours, so they remain secure at all times. Our customers are also protected by the FSCS (Financial Services Compensation Scheme).
By joining EQi, you are joining tens of thousands of customers who also value independence, choice and control over their investments.
As a company we have been offering share-dealing services for 20 years and EQi now has over 60,000 customers. We are happy to say that 89% of our customers would recommend EQi.
Our site is not just a trading website. As specialists, we focus on the products and resources that help to make your money work harder and which are tax smarter.
Once you have one account with EQi, you can open a Flexible ISA or a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) and we will provide you with a dealing account, free of charge, helping you to keep costs down.
This could include ISAs or SIPP transferred from another provider. As an investor, you may well have other investment accounts beyond Saga Share Direct. If you have one of these accounts with a balance of more than £1,000, you can transfer them to EQi to take advantage of our flat fee structure.
