Thanks for sharing the article. I thought RH was USA only, so why would HL benefit? The article says its affected 2,000 out of 13 million clients, so a very small percentage. Also HL has been around so much longer and has far more robust online security than RH (for example they already have compulsory two-factor authentication), so I don't see why RH's problems should be making the HL share price drop. I suspect there's another reason.

They got robbed. Hackers stole investors money and gave it to the poor in a robinhood stylee. Scandalous. I don't have my investments online for that very reason. But HL should benefit from the clientele that will abandon RH https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bloomberg.com/amp/news/articles/2020-10-15/robinhood-estimates-hackers-infiltrated-almost-2-000-accounts

Liking this share more now after the robinhood debacle. Hope they have some fine cyber security to keep out the Russians/North Koreans/ 15 year olds

Agreed, in hindsight I should have loaded up good and proper when it was briefly below £12 in March... but then virtually every share was a buy in March (with hindsight).

Hefty 6-7% swing (down...) in 24 hours, following a positive previous 24 hours. Bought some here. We'll see.

FT: Hargreaves' Brexit buffer:Brexit bothers investors and periodically slows down the whole Hargreaves Lansdown moneymaking machine, writes Cat Rutter Pooley. Not noticeably this quarter though, even as the next Brexit deadline looms.In the three months to September, HL attracted 31,000 net new customers, it said on Thursday, despite both Brexit and Covid-19 giving investors the collywobbles. This time last year when Brexit trouble bubbled it only brought in 17,000 on a comparative basis. Many will be day traders lured by the stock market machinations since March. Elevated trading volumes helped lift HL's revenues above analysts' expectations. The new clients are potentially less lucrative than others on Hargreaves platform.They did not bring as much money with them per head as those who joined a year ago, and won't necessarily stick around once markets quieten. But flighty as day traders may be, they are helpful at a time when uncertainty is building and interest rates are at rock bottom. Many UK equity investors are already choosing to wait out the current bout of turbulence. UK shares have proved unpopular in recent months. The FTSE 100 has been slower than global peers to recover from March's plunge. Data from the Investment Association show net retail outflows from UK funds of £748m in August and £912m in July. If clients build up cash balances that is bad for HL, since rock-bottom interest rates mean it earns measly margins on the pooled money placed with banks. Those margins have historically accounted for a decent chunk of overall profits, says Shore Capital analyst Paul McGinnis: about 27 per cent in the year to June and 24 per cent in the year before that.But rates have fallen significantly since April as central banks loosened purse strings. The headwind to profits from lower rates could be about £70m if extrapolated over the course of a year, Mr McGinnis reckoned in August. HL hopes it can convert its new stockbroking clients to other assets, making them as sticky as the rest of its customer base. It does not matter too much if it can't. They are nice to have for now as a Brexit buffer.Even after Brexit is done and dusted, Hargreaves will continue to reap the benefits of the shift from defined benefit to defined contribution schemes and an ageing population with money to invest. It is as close to a perpetual motion machine as one is likely to find on the stock market.

Yes natasonline, I still think the main thing holding these shares back is a risk of legal action, so until that is concluded one way or the other I can't see HL getting back over £20 again. They will probably remain a 'trading' share as Porche1945 says in the meantime.

@amunro Agreed, i did use IG but it was the customer service just dire, always problems moving money in and out especially big chunks. I really rate iWeb, fiver a go, its all there,easy everything and decent staff.

I've started getting ads on my phone asking if I was a victim of the Woodford scandle. The law firms are getting closer to showing their hand.

IG £3 per trade if you do enough. Amazing charting and platform. But customer care somewhat lacking (ppl cost money I guess).

I agree re trading stock - but also would be happy to hold long term if it went lower. Same as with all the shares I buy - if they go lower, I need to be happy to buy more, not sell for a stop-loss. Why HL? Mainly 'cos it's all in a SIPP, they are the biggest and for that you get some security and robust platform which works on 'mad' market days - although right now they are having a prices updating issue with some smaller caps, been going on for some time now and getting very irritating - and it's only £6 a trade if you do enough (which I do). Not worth the hassle of changing. And I can buy their shares and benefit from my own hyperactivity. Medium/longer term, I put it on here a couple of months ago - it is (to me) a question of how well they manage the current and future growth in online shares and investment activity. They're doing OK so far. I personally don't do funds, so am not being ripped off - many many others don't do direct equities and do want funds. So I can benefit from them overpaying chinless wonders to manage their money for them. Fine by me...

Yes defo long on TW and HSBC, will double up over 18 months/2 years plus healthy divs’. HL a trading stock, just wouldnt want to get caught with it, if the likes of Robin Hood announce they are entering the U.K. market, forget what anyone else on here says, these will tank 30 pc plus overnight. The problem is their funds are awful, performance dire, costs high. Other platforms are cheaper and a lot of the time just better. If you are trading why not just use iWeb at a fiver a pop? I think HL has had its moment, Woodford was more of a disaster than people realise, and that isnt over. As I say, a trading stock.

P - seen you long on a few of mine - TW. and HSBA plus others. And previously that you are not fond of this lot. Bit of history? Fair enough - I am now long again (and a customer) - and frankly adding a lot to their trading revenues...
