Charles Stanley Direct is an award-winning and innovative digital service backed by one of the country’s longest established investment management companies (Charles Stanley Group PLC) who can trace its origins back to 1792 and whose name first appeared on the London Stock Exchange in 1852. Always a leader and innovator, Charles Stanley Direct is the digital and mobile-ready arm of this £20 billion business and continually tops comparison tables in the UK against the leading D2C platforms. Recently the company was voted as “leading Innovation in Consumer Platforms” at the Aberdeen UK Platform Awards 2015 and was also named by Boring Money as the “best for ISA accounts at £10,000”. Charles Stanley Direct continues to deliver outstanding personal service to its digital D2C clients and challenges the longer established players with continual upgrades, pricing models and products.
