Soon to be TD Direct Investing
TD Waterhouse is a share dealing company enabling you to buy and sell stocks and shares on the stock exchange. I remember seeing the TD Waterhouse advertisements years ago and the theme was this: You don't need to be some kind of archetypal fellow in a bowler hat to deal on the stock exchange. Anyone can do it, whatever their persona in their other life. Of course you have to bear in mind the fact that buying and selling stocks and shares is a serious business and you really have got to be sensible about it. In a way it makes you a big time gambler which means that as well as the real possibility you could make a lot of money, there are serious possibilities that you could also lose a lot of money. It's a good idea to get some financial advice so you know what the risk/reward situation is.
TD Waterhouse is known for being an execution-only stocks and shares dealer which means: On your own risk be it! MY advice is: Gamble wisely and don't invest more than you can afford to lose! Nevertheless, if you are still interested, you might be intrigued to hear that in their own words "With TD Waterhouse you can invest in a wide range of investment options, including UK equities, gilts, bonds, investment trusts, unit trusts, ICVCs & Exchange Traded Funds" ... and "TD Waterhouse is part of one of the worlds largest discount brokerage groups and a subsidiary of the Toronto Dominion Bank Financial Group. Developed to meet the needs of both active traders and longer-term investors, our service offers fast and simple online trading in the full range of asset classes available to retail investors; UK and International Equities, Funds, Bonds, Gilts, ETFs, Covered Warrants, Listed CFDs, Contracts for Difference, and Financial Spread Betting". Plus, as a matter of fact "Multi-currency trading in all major North American and European markets is provided for customers across Europe by Internaxx - a joint venture between TD Waterhouse and Banque Générale du Luxembourg".
TD Waterhouse is big business, and whether you've heard of TD Bank, they've been in business for a while and have the following description: "The Toronto Dominion Bank Financial Group Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, with more than 52,000 employees in offices around the world. The Toronto-Dominion Bank and its subsidiaries are collectively known as TD Bank Financial Group (TDBFG). TD Bank Financial Group offers a full range of financial products and services to more than 14 million customers worldwide. TD Bank Financial Group ranks as one of the top on-line financial services providers in the world with more than 4.5 million on-line customers. The Toronto-Dominion Bank trades on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges under the symbol TD". So now you know!

The value of shares can go down as well as up. You may not get back all the funds you invest. Good Luck!
Update: On or around 25th-28th November 2011, TD Waterhouse is changing its name to TD Direct Investing and changing their web address to www.tddirectinvesting.co.uk and, sad though it may seem, this page is likely to be bunged up. We'd like to carry on promoting TD Direct Investing, and they'd get a new page (although the present pages will remain), and a link from the page of various companies with Direct in the name in addition to Financial Companies and Gambling (the value of investments may go down as well as up). As Zyra's website is a Real Content site, Freedom of Speech is important, so whatever compliance they want, they may or may not necessarily get. However, we'd like to promote them, and we will write about them. Mostly nice things, hopefully!
Extra bonus point: Invest wisely and avoid taking any notice of stockmarket spam. If you receive an email pretending to be from TD Waterhouse, it's almost certainly not from them, and you should not use it to log in or verify your details. It's phishing, that's what it is.
