Why Choose a Stocks and Shares ISA?

Whether you’re looking to put aside some money each month or have some spare money which you’d like to make work for you, an investment ISA could be a tax-efficient option.

Currently, you are able to invest anything up to the tax threshold and choose to have it spread across a Cash, Stocks and Shares and Innovative Finance ISA or consolidated within one account.

As you can only fund one Stocks and Shares ISA per tax year it’s a good idea to shop around before you make your choice. However, as all providers must allow you to move your money you are able to transfer but it’s worth checking if your current provider charges penalties. Otherwise you could receive back less than you originally invested.

Generally, Stocks and Shares ISAs have the potential to provide better returns than a savings account but customers must be prepared for the risks that are always present with investing. There is a chance you could end up with less than you invested, depending on market growth.

How inflation is impacting your savings and why you cannot afford to sit on your hands when it comes to your cash

11th December 2017

Last month, the Bank of England raised their base rate for the first time in more than ten years, and by doing so opened the door to increased monthly costs for many homeowners. What’s more, at the time of writing inflation continues to sit at a five year high of 3%, which means that the cost of living has more than trebled in the last 12 months.
