UK option writing

Which broker in U.K. allow investor to write covered call option or cash covered put option? Most of the high street bank's stockbroker does not seem to offer this kind of services.

Besides normal commission, is it common practice to charge a 0.75% annual fee for the value of the shares held for writing covered call?

Ken,

Never heard of this. What if you lodged cash in lieu of shares as collateral? Would they then charge you interest on this? The shares held are for their benefit as much as yours. They may even lend them out for all we know.

I wouldn't entertain it, mate.

Ken,

Who does this (I think I can guess)? This should be known by everybody.

I lost my life savings (net worth) with ODL securities and Frank Freeman on an advisory basis in 5 months. I invested £71,500 and was left with just £900. I was commissioned over £32,400.

The case has now gone to the Ombudsman for arbitration.
