Apologies in advance for the newbie question.
I have a moderately large lump sum to invest. I've decided to buy shares
in FTSE 100 companies and hold them for the long term. I have pencilled
in the amounts I want to invest in each of my chosen companies.
I think I should hold the shares in certificated form so I don't have to
worry about on-going account charges, inactivity fees or stockbrokers
going bust, and also I'll be able to sell them where and when I want.
In view of the sums involved, it seems to make sense to pay flat rate
commission rather than a percentage. I have no problem waiting for a
bulk dealing day rather than buying immediately.
Can anyone recommend appropriate share dealers, either internet or
