What are share baskets?

Share baskets are mini portfolios of stocks built around popular themes and growing trends, with constituent stocks handpicked by our traders and analysts to give you maximum exposure to those themes from a single position.

Why trade share baskets with us?

Spread bet or trade CFDs on our exclusive share baskets – mini portfolios of stocks built around a specific theme.

Your favourites in one place

Our analysts have already done the hard work to identify current and emerging trends driving the economy, and those companies best placed to reap potential rewards.

Lower risk

Through diversification, share baskets give you broad exposure to a theme, avoiding the risk of putting all of your eggs in one basket when trading on a single company.

One position

Share baskets allow you to gain exposure to a theme without opening and maintaining multiple positions, saving you time and money.

Leveraged trading

We offer up to 5:1 leverage on share baskets. This means for every £1, you'll have £5 of exposure.

Low cost

Trade commission-free with exposure to some of the highest-performance companies in the world, and benefit from reduced holding costs.

Holding costs (Yearly)

How we build our share baskets

Step 1

Trend identification

Firstly, our analysts use their expertise and hours of market research to spot existing and emerging trends that are driving the economy, such as AI or driverless cars.

Step 2

Impact analysis

Then, they examine the data to determine the companies they believe are best positioned to benefit from these trends, varying their weighting in the index based on their exposure.

Step 3

Basket formation

Finally, we group the top companies into baskets, which operate in a similar way to an index such as the UK 100, giving you a broad exposure to a theme.
