A quick guide to the Investment ISA
If you're looking for a stocks and shares ISA with fewer 'ups and downs' than a 'normal' stocks & shares ISA, then you could consider our Investment ISA.
- Our Investment ISA is classed as a stocks & shares ISA
- Invest from £30 per month / £300 single up to the maximum allowance of £20,000
- Current interim bonus rate 3.5% before charges**
- Transfer an existing ISA up to £100,000 (£150,000 from 01 Jan 2021)
- No fixed term*
- Potential for tax-free growth‡ through annual and bonuses
- Access to your money should you need it†
When you invest with us, we pool your money together with other members’ in the with-profits fund, the fund is managed to provide a low - medium risk investment. The with-profits fund invests in things like commercial property, shares, fixed interest, cash, bonds and government gilts. With-profits aims to offer a better return than a typical bank or building society account, but is not as risky as investing all your money directly on the stock market as we ‘smooth’ returns.
† If you withdraw from or transfer your ISA during adverse investment conditions you may, in certain circumstances, get back less than you invested.
‡ The tax treatment depends on your individual circumstances which could change in the future.
Bonuses are not guaranteed and depend on the performance of our with-profits fund.
*We suggest a minimum term of 3-5 years.
**Charges are 1.5% p.a - bonus rate correct at time of writing
If you have any questions one of our trained staff will be happy to help, you can visit our main website for an online chat or call us on 01226 74100 during office hours.
