Investment ISA

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.

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.  For more information on transferring investments please visit our Transfer accounts to us page. Remember too that tax rules can change in future and their effects on you will depend on your individual circumstances. Also, investments can fall in value as well as rise; you might get back less than you invest.

Flexible investing

Invest up to £20,000 in the 2017-18 tax year. You can also split your allowance between a cash, investment, innovative finance and a lifetime ISA. However, with a lifetime ISA,1 you can only pay in up to £4,000 in each tax year.


Great tax benefits

Protect your returns from Capital Gains Tax (CGT), tax on dividends and income tax when you invest through an ISA.
