Investment ISA

Start early for an ISA way to invest

You can put up to £20,000 into your Investment ISA.

Our Investment Individual Savings Account (ISA) puts you in the driver's seat. With over 2,000 funds, shares and other investment opportunities, take control of achieving your goals today with a diversified portfolio built for your specific needs.

Transferring your ISAs doesn’t affect their tax-efficient status. But you should make sure that you don’t have to pay penalties or give up valuable benefits or suffer any drawbacks. Tax rules can change and their effects on you will depend on your individual circumstances.

For more information on transferring investments please visit our Transfer accounts to us page.

Remember, 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.

Why choose a Barclays Investment ISA?

Flexible investing

Invest up to £20,000 in the 2018-19 tax year. You can also split your allowance between a cash, investment, innovative finance1 and a lifetime ISA. However, with a lifetime ISA,1 you can only pay in up to £4,000 in each tax year.

Valuable investing resources

Get instant help to become a smarter investor with our online tools, research, insight, interviews and more.

Great tax benefits

Protect your returns from capital gains tax (CGT), tax on dividends and income tax when you invest through an ISA. If you invest outside an ISA, you have several tax-free allowances, including the CGT annual allowance, personal savings allowance and dividend allowance.

Bear in mind that tax rules might change in future and their effects on you depend on your individual circumstances.

Easy account transfers

Transferring a cash or investment ISA to us is simple. Start the process online and we'll help you all the way.
