I was with Tdw who I thought were great. Brilliant website. Instant connection when phoning with any problem. Gutted when iii took them out. I was with iii before Tdw and they were pretty good second choice. When I went back after Tdw I dont know what had changed but it was shambolic and more expensive.There message boards used to be the best but after takeover they were horrendous. Everyone complained - you couldnt make head nor tail of them/ Moved to HL. They are fairly expensive but I guess its what you use them for. ISAs arent expensive and their fund and share account has no platform charges. Website ok though I think its not particularly user friendly - I find it a bit clumsy.Live streaming always going on the blink too. You have also got to trade quite a lot before you get discount. To be honest I dont think there's much between them
I'm guessing, but perhaps someone more knowledgeable can correct me; If the preference cumulative share divi's are suspended, do such divi's have to be cleared before an ordinary divi can be paid? What would that do to the ordinary share price? If the ordinary share price then collapsed, and there was a takeover attempt, does the pref divi have to be paid for the takeover?

When Antonio took over running the bank the share price was 60.83p with a market Cap of £43Billion. When the Government brokered the deal for Lloyds to take over HBOS the Government at the time promised to wave through the takeover with no reprisals or interference. It was destined to be the new 'Bank of Britain' when the economy eventually recovered. Potential future market cap of £100 Billion plus. Today the bank is worth barely £18 billion Nice one Antonio. That's what happens when you capitulate and role over to every whim of the BoE and Government. IMO Antonio has only been thinking about his own renumeration whilst greasing round people in Power.
At these depressed share price is there any chance some big US bank fancy a takeover of Lloyd's bank.
Only time will tell Min as always. In the scale of things, I cant see Covid costing LLoyds the same as the Halifax takeover and the PPI payments scandal. But we shall see. Difficult times for many people. For those not as smart as you and who have years on their side the markets will come back, but this market is haveing a difficult effect on pensions for 'normal' people who have done the 'right'thing over the years and paid in to schemes of one form or another. Hard times ahead for some I think.
That dreadful tv advert with Maureen Lipman and Gyles Brandreth is a big clue as to Lloyds' strategy. The ad encourages old folk to use internet banking on the basis it is easy and secure. Lloyds probably has more pensioner account holders than other banks as a legacy of the TSB takeover. Shift the oldies online then half the branches can be shut. There probably are huge cost-savings to be made.
On Radio 4 this morning Lloyds was described as the bank that had to be rescued by the government following its disastrous takeover of HBOS. Which is one way of putting it.
what is going on tricky is a communist takeover..If we dont wake up and see the truth we cannot reverse it
