I wonder how their UK offering will compare to all the other commission-free UK brokers (I can think of four off the top of my head). Free of fees or not, if your share dealing account isn't in a tax wrapper like an ISA or SIPP then you'll still be liable to pay dividend and capital gains tax on your profits. Of course, Robinhood aren't tax advisers so they don't have to tell clients this. 

Even though they're late to the UK market, they'll probably steam ahead like they did in the US. It will be interesting to see how/if established brokers respond to the extra competition.

I like that they don't charge 'custodian' fees like IG do.  £24 per quarter for what?  As the cannabis fiasco shows, ultimately you don't even have full control over the shares you buy.

We all appreciate good service and products but those things can’t be provided for free as there is always some cost.  Everyone needs to pay the bills, including IG. I think that charging fees that are reasonable is fair. IG provides friendly & professional service and companies and people should be allowed to charge or we will loose out in the long run as they may not be here because they are broke.

    • GREAT CONUNDRUMS OF OUR TIMES:   1/ The WHO, having originally said it wanted a ban on alcohol for pregnant women now proposes the ban should apply to all women of childbearing age.  | BPAS HOWEVER, the WHO also says it's perfectly fine to inject pregnant women with an experimental vaccine. 🤔   2/ THORPE PARK says; ''in line with our ride restrictions, all our guests who are mask exempt are required to sit in the row farthest to the back to reduce the risk of air transmission aboard our attractions.''  BUT, as @dontbetyet points out, ''The risk of a ride malfunctioning and someone being injured / killed is a greater risk to someone in the theme park than outdoor transmission. Therefore it would be prudent for THORPEPARK to shut for good as the risk is far too great!''  🤔   OR THIS; 3/   OR THIS; 4/ You're the head of the NHS and are asked for your thoughts on Mad Matt Hancock - what do you do? 🤔     .      
    • This is how you do it. China went to near zero cases simply by changing the definition. To have a disease you must have symptoms, it is the very definition of having a disease. You need to have symptoms in order to be infectious (be productive of virus in droplets or aerosol). To be infected does not mean you have the disease nor that you might be infectious because you might have immunity which kills the infection and prevents you catching the disease and having symptoms.     h/t  david @davinci_mora   Unfortunately this is all too complicated for our govt's ''scientific experts'' (half of whom are psychologists) to understand so it's forever onward with Project Fear.
