Deposit Cash ISAs

FTSE 100 6 Year Deposit Plan

from Investec

ISA Option
Maximum Potential Return 42.00% at end of term
  • Deposit Taker: Investec Bank plc
  • Term: 6 years

"This plan offers a potential fixed return of 42%, provided the FTSE 100 Index at the end of the term is higher than its value at the start of the plan (subject to averaging). As with other cash deposits, your capital is also eligible for FSCS* protection.

The 42% return is equivalent to 6.38% compound growth each year, which is well over double the best fixed rate bond, and more than 4% per year higher than the top fixed rate Cash ISA.

The downside is that the return is not guaranteed, and so if the FTSE ends lower, you only get your initial capital back.”

  • 42% fixed return if the Index is higher
  • Capital protected product*
  • Eligible for the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)
  • Returns not guaranteed. You may only receive a return of your original capital
  • Minimum deposit £3,000
  • Plan designed to be held for full term

£0.00 (per tax year)

Important Information: * The return of your initial deposit depends on the ability of the deposit taker (Investec Bank plc) to repay your money. Structured deposits offer you the potential to earn higher returns than you would with a regular savings account. Your returns are based on the performance of an index or commodity. If the investment does not perform well you may receive no income or capital growth, but you can be confident that your capital will be repaid. You have no access to your deposit during the term of the account, typically 3 to 6 years but your original capital will be repaid in full at the end of the term. In the event that the deposit taker is unable to repay your initial investment and any returns stated you may be entitled to compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) depending on your individual circumstances.

FTSE 100 Kick Out Deposit Plan

from Investec

ISA Option
Maximum Potential Return 6.00% per annum
  • Deposit Taker: Investec Bank plc
  • Term: Up to 6 years

"By offering full capital protection plus a potential 6% per year, this plan offers the opportunity to beat low savings rates as well as tackle the effects of rising inflation."

  • Opportunity to mature early at year 3, 4 or 5
  • Capital Protected Product*
  • Eligible for the Financial Services Compensation Scheme
  • ISA transfers accepted
  • Short/medium term alternative to fixed rates
  • Minimum single Investment - £3,000
  • This plan is not the same as a bank or building society deposit account and you may not receive your initial deposit in full if your capital is withdrawn early
  • Limited offer - deadlines apply. May close early if oversubscribed

Review of Halifax Fixed Rate ISA

ISAs have become less popular since the new PSA (Personal Savings Allowance) has allowed lower rate tax payers to save up to £1000 tax-free and higher rate tax payers up to £500. However, as your tax-free amount is much higher in an ISA, there are still opportunities for savers to make the most of their money.

What do Halifax offer?

Halifax offer a good deal with their ISA and, like RBS, offer a one year fixed term rate rather than a 3-5 year plan, like many other banks.

You are able to save and earn interest on between £500 and £20,000 in the same tax year. You will not be able to withdraw from or close the account before the agreed term is up; early account closure will result in the loss of interest. You will need your national insurance number before you apply.

Halifax offer:

  • ISA transfers into our cash ISAs benefit from their ISA Promise. As part of this, they pay you interest while your funds are being transferred (provided they're free to move)
  • The Halifax Savers Prize Draw, qualifying accounts earn a monthly chance of winning one of 3 top prizes of £100,000, if you register and hold £5,000 in qualifying accounts during the whole calendar month before the draw
  • Online banking so you can view and manage your savings easily as well as phone and branch banking.
  • A switch service. Existing ISA balances can be transferred into this account from another ISA provider, as long as you use their ISA Switching service. Previous tax year funds won't affect your current tax year allowance.

Why use an ISA?

Paying into an ISA is called ‘subscribing’. You can subscribe to one of each type of ISA each tax year, providing you do not subscribe more than your annual ISA allowance. For the 2018/2019 tax year that runs from 6th April 2017 to 5th April 2018 your annual ISA allowance is £20,000.

ISAs are a good idea whatever your savings goal. With certain types of cash ISAs, you have instant access to your money, which makes it a flexible way to plan your finances.

How much can I pay into an ISA?

21st March 2019

Each tax year, there's a limit set by the government to the amount you can save and invest in ISAs: your “annual ISA allowance”. The allowances are intended to reward savers and encourage us to invest more to support our future retirements, without creating a tax haven that can be taken advantage of by very wealthy individuals who just want to avoid paying tax.
