Investment Account

If you've already used up your Individual Savings Account (ISA) allowance, or you're looking for investments that can't be held in an ISA, our Investment Account gives you the flexibility you need. Bear in mind, though, that your returns may be subject to capital gains tax (CGT), tax on dividends and income tax if they exceed your personal allowances. Tax rules can change and their effects on you will depend on your individual circumstances.

Before you transfer an account, make sure that you don’t have to pay penalties or give up valuable benefits. For more information on transferring investments please visit our Transfer accounts to us page.

When you open an Investment Account, there’ll also be an Investment Saver facility attached to it to give you the opportunity to earn interest.

Remember the value of investments can fall as well as rise. You may not get back what you invest. We don’t offer personal financial advice so if you’re not sure about investing, seek independent advice.
