Who? there are millions of entries around the globe on bridge hall.

Either be more specific or as I would always suggest:

If in doubt, go without. (always the best thing to do)

Ask yourself why you doubt this firm then think to yourself, what if the person/s on here that say they are good to go is actually part of them?

If in doubt, go without.

Find someone else or another firm or whoever they are.

These guys are fine and your money is protected upto the given amount under FSA guidelines.

To check them out, the first line on their page quotes:

Bridge Hall Stockbrokers Limited is an independent stockbroking company, with offices based in the heart of the City of London and in Altrincham, Cheshire. We are authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.

To check and confirm use the FSA register:

FSA Register

Type in the name of the firm then see if they are or not. In this case they are but still check for yourself as I could easily be a scammer trying to get your money.

Thanks. Of course u could be... But just because the firm is FSA regulated it doesnt mean it is completely legit... There are plenty of firms that are fsa regulated that are no better than the spanish spank shops...

This is clearly a statement.

You need to find out exactly what the FSA is and what it's set up for. When you know this you wont come out with insulting/silly comments like the FSA register firms that are 'no better than a spanish spank shop'.

It would seem you have a lot to know first before putting your money anywhere, including u.k banks.

Good luck.

Thank you for your enlightening opinion on my investment experience Lee and thank you for your wise words on Bridge Hall. Yes i am new to all this, but remember you were too at some point.

My comments were not directed at all FSA reg firms. Just the unfortunate few who don't believe in TCF and 'invest and burn' clients' money.

Regards.

Sure, I hear what your saying but also its good to remember that new people ask questions, they dont make statements about things they do not know. I myself still ask many questions every day in my career and I only make statements about things I have knowledge on, I also use this same approach when talking in general, face to face or on the net.

Good luck with your research.
