What are Growth ISAs?

ISAs are designed to provide a tax-efficient wrapper for your savings, so if you're looking to invest for growth, they offer you a range of options available to you depending on your attitude to risk. 

You can invest in a wide choice of funds, offering high levels of potential growth for your ISA allowance.

  1. Growth ISAs are intended as medium to long term investments, so you can typically expect short-term volatility.
  2. Growth ISAs tend to have a stronger focus on investing in stocks and shares
  3. Growth funds tend to be higher risk funds, and so they are ideal for those looking to build their savings, or pensions, over longer periods of time.

The key to making the most of your investments is to figure out what you hope to achieve before you start. Everyone's objectives are different, so the trick is to find the investment method that best reflects your personal financial goals.

How much can I invest in a growth ISA?

As with all ISA options, you have a maximum isa allowance to invest each tax year. You have the option to invest your full allowance in either type of ISA, or invest some in a cash ISA and the remaining balance in a growth ISA or another type of stocks and shares ISA. However, you can't have more than one type of stocks and shares ISA in any given tax year.

Why invest your ISA allowance for growth?

If you're looking for an investment that will pay back in time, with the added bonus of tax-efficiency, a growth ISA could be a good choice for you. Growth ISAs are best for those who are happy to wait five years or more to access their money, and who aren't looking for immediate income as a priority. Growth ISAs offer investors the opportunity to spread their ISA allowance across a range of funds featuring different investment risk profiles and growth objectives.

As well as offering the potential for good returns in the long term, investors who choose a growth funds using their annual ISA allowance won't need to pay capital gains tax on any returns made.

What if a growth ISA doesn't seem like the right option?

If you're likely to need to get hold of your money at short notice, an instant access cash ISA or an easy access cash ISA might be a better choice. Similarly, if you're risk-averse, a growth ISA probably isn't for you as this type of plan tends to be quite high risk as a rule. If this is an issue for you, you might want to look into a different type of investment plan.
