Re: Barclays Smart Investor

I don't follow what you are saying. I have received a CTC from Barclays Stockbrokers covering the period up until the transfer and the amounts are correct. My point is that judging from all the incompetences Barclays have shown in the Dumb Investor platform implementation, I do not have confidence ...

Re: Barclays Smart Investor

They do say 2 CTC's might be issued if holdings couldn't be transferred at the changeover. This is just another attempted cover up of incompetence. All my holdings appeared in Dumb Investor at changeover (shares, ITs and ETFs). Nothing was left in Barclays Stockbrokers. The way dividends have been ...

I beg to differ. Banning trail only applies to Funds sold via Platforms. Those purchased through a Discount Broker can still pay trail. I get a rebate cheque every year from my Discount Broker.

Re: Unable to find funds currently in HL in other brokers

It is still possible to buy Funds directly from the Fund manager albeit usually on not as advantageous terms as a platform. The plus is that there is no Platform Fee which is fine for LTBH. The minus is that selling and receiving the cash is a bit slower than on a platform. Also, if you opt for an I...

Re: Barclays Smart Investor

I too get

Called (got through relatively easily) and was told "server problem. IT working on it".

Seems ominous that a crash should happen on the first day of the new tax year.

Re: Barclays Smart Investor

All were OK EXCEPT for MRCH (Merchant Investment Trust) which only had a Sell button next to it? A number of IT KIDs are still missing in Dumb Investor. I have checked HSDL and they do have the KID for MRCH although you actually have to download it and then click on the box to say you've read it be...

Re: New EU Rules 2018

My HSDL account is showing Buy/Sell against all my IT and ETF holdings. Barclays is showing Buy/Sell for some of my IT and all my EFT holdings and just Sell against the remaining ITs. However, one of my IT holdings showing only Sell transacted an automatic dividend reinvestment on 2nd Jan. The platf...

Re: Barclays Smart Investor

This is where it all goes 'pear-shaped' - Smart Dumb Investor don't seem to know how to reclaim the tax. I have had a complaint running on this with them for the past six months.... This issue has been aired on another forum for a client with a REIT in an ISA. Answer given by Barclays was: Quote So...

Anyone any suggestions - other than using the certificates as wallpaper until they either get taken over or go bust. Ask Halifax. Free to open an account and no platform fees. I have just typed in both SOM and SPSY and both are available to buy/sell. I have transferred in certificated shares in the...

Re: Barclays Smart Investor

The FT have weighed in again this morning, with this little nugget - The bank [...] said all outstanding dividends would be paid by October 12. Thanks for sharing. I am missing BP (due 22/9) and IUKD (due 29/9 but xd after the migration) but they paid MIDD (due 29/9) and have carried out the reinve...

Re: Barclays Smart Investor

I am still waiting for dividends from BP and LLOY.... I think we are all due a huge apology from Barclays for this mess. I too am still missing BP. I suspect that the Sinclair ZX80 that they are probably using for this system is struggling a bit as a lot of account holders have BP and reconciling i...

Lucky you! I am due FCPT, IUKD and MIDD that all went xd after the migration and were due 29/9. Not one has turned up. AND still waiting for BP that was due 22/9.

Re: Barclays Smart Investor

Scrip dividend on my RDSA appeared today but not the residual cash. New scrip shares quantity is wrong so another Formal Complaint letter on the way.

Suggest others who take scrip check number of new shares allocated is what they are expecting. Will check BP when they get round to that.
