AJ Bell - I currently use AJ Bell as my investment platform. I like the fact that they are a listed business and are founder run. I do not know if they are "the best" platform out there. However, I am happy with AJ Bell at the current time. If you sign up with them and mention me I do get a bonus! Their referral offers are on this page and change frequently: AJ Bell offers

Stock picking services
These are not recommendations and Fund Hunter cannot vouch as to whether merit subscribing to. But for those picking stocks, there may be some merit in having a good source of ideas.
Funds and stocks can work well together provided that the stocks are small satellite ideas. Running a 100% stock portfolio is challenging for most of us.
