Stocks and shares are the words used to refer to part ownership of a company, also known as equities. A company issues shares on a stock exchange which allows investors to buy and sell those shares.
You can invest directly in stocks and shares using a share dealing account. This type of service allows you to issue instructions to a stock broker who will trade the shares on your behalf.
