I can't find anything on the internet about this.
Is it possible to hold shares wrapped in an ISA without actually having a bank or brokers account?
The reason I ask is because:
- I am paranoid about not being able to access my funds in a time of crisis (e.g. the bank going bust). This represents a single point of failure for me in terms of risk.
- I do not like my shares being in a centralised pool that works on an "allocation" basis, rather than shares directly owned by me
- I want shareholder voting rights and AGM invitations.
- I want full control.
Ideally I would hold physical share certificates in my name wrapped in an ISA.
