Share Dealing (small scale)

Is there a straightforward way of making occasional share purchases,
without, if possible setting up a full-scale dealing account with a broker?

Yes. Set up an account with an on-line dealing firm like IMIweb or Hargreaves Lansdown. OK, maybe you might regard this as a full scale dealing account but it's not difficult to arrange. Then you can just buy ad sell when you want. Had you considered this and rejected it?

Does it involve a quarterly fee? I did look at Lloyds TSB share dealing service, but it involved having the shareholdings in a nominee account, and there was a quarterly fee charged regardless of if there were any transactions. All I want is a "deal only" service where I get the shareholdings registered in my name.

Well, I use IMIweb and there's is just a 10 dealing fee. But it's a nominee account so you don't get any share certificates. Is that a problem?

In theory, no, but isn't it true that some benefits, such as shareholder discounts, are not easily available to nominee shareholders?
