Good, the vast majority of brokers are crooks either way. How does the common man invest when he is charged £12 to trade, on top of stamp duty. You have to trade a minimum of £1000 a trade to make it worthwhile.
HL is probably the worst out there. Overpriced trading, overpriced funds. You are better off with Freetrade or a Vanguard Index Fund.
There are ways to cut costs - buying and holding is one way, so you don’t incur too many trading fees. Even HL allows you to purchase via regular investing which only costs £1.50 per purchase.
Unless you want to invest in funds, which Freetrade don’t currently offer. Or in funds other than Vanguard, which Vanguard Funds don’t offer.
Freetrade has indexes, which is more than sufficient for 90% of investors.
