Investment Account

The value of investments can fall as well as rise and you could get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure about investing, seek independent advice.

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. Remember too that tax rules can change in the future and that 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.
