Hail, hail, This article is a guide on how to buy shares in Celtic plc. Before we go any further I must declare that I am not a financial advisor and this is not financial advice, it’s simply a guide to help fans buy shares in Celtic PLC.
As I stated in an earlier article the Celtic Network is back purely to work in partnership with the Celtic Trust and other independent fans groups to help increase Celtic supporters shareholding in the PLC.
How to buy shares in Celtic
Celtic is a Public Limited Company (PLC) and it is listed on the London Stock Exchange. This means buying shares is straightforward. Simply follow the steps below to become a shareholder.
Celtic is listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and has the ticker name of CCP. This guide will explain how to invest in the PLC.
• First you need to open a share trading account. (the search criteria I used was: good for beginners and easy to use.)
• Deposit funds into your account.
• Find Celtic on your chosen trading platform. Try searching its ticker name of CCP if you can’t find it.
• Choose the amount you want to invest.
• Invest! Once you have placed your deal you now have shares in Celtic.
What is a share trading account ?
• Before you can start to compare share dealing accounts, it’s important to know what it is and how it works.
• A share trading account (also known as a brokerage account and a share dealing account) lets you buy and sell company shares.
• They sometimes also give you access to exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and other fund types.
• Accounts differ in the range of shares you can trade on them, so if you’re keen on owning a bit of Celtic, for example, you’ll need a broker that lets you trade UK shares.
• You can find out which accounts offer which types of shares in the provider
• It’s worth considering opening a stocks and shares individual savings account (ISA) to “hold” your investments because you can invest up to £20,000 a year in ISAs and you won’t have to pay tax on the profits. But you might have to pay a fee for the ISA, depending on the platform you use.
How do I set up a trading account ?
Being a novice myself I have used the following criteria in searching for share trading companies.
• Easy to use
• Good for beginners
