Investment ISAs are an easy way for people to begin saving and potentially see higher returns than with a regular ISA. Many accounts manage your funds for you or provide you with a simple selection that you can choose. It’s tax-efficient wrapper which protects your investments from capital gains tax and personal tax.
An Investment ISA can be a good way to put aside some money each month or invest some extra cash. This kind of account isn’t the best if you don’t have any other savings or are in debt because you won’t be able to access your money easily if you need to and you could make losses.
However, Investment ISAs have the potential to provide better returns than any other savings account.
All Stocks and Shares ISAs charge some kind of account fee. Make sure you check before you apply
You can transfer from a Cash ISA in to a Stocks and Shares ISA and vice versa (usually after selling your investments) watch out for transfer fees.
Some providers allow you to hold cash in your account, ready to invest whenever you choose. You can even earn interest on that money so make sure your potential provider offers this if you think you may need this option
Bed & ISA is a term which involves selling your non-ISA investments and then using the proceeds to buy them back immediately but with the ISA wrapper. This means you use your annual tax-free allowance and therefore, save tax on your assets.
The value of investments can go down in value as well as up, so you could get back less than you invest. It is therefore important that you understand the risks and commitments.
