In this time of ever decreasing interest rates from banks, many people have turned to investing in order to make up the shortfall. There is an element of risk as there is no guarantee that you will make any profit and could even make losses on your money
However, investing has traditionally been a successful way to gain returns on your money and with many providers offering managed accounts with a portfolio to match your risk threshold, it has never been easier for beginners to start investing. This option also makes it very easy for busy people who don't have time to keep on top of managing a portfolio.
Most Investment accounts do take transfers in but check with your current provider to make sure there are no hidden charges for account closure which could result in significant losses.
Investment ISAs have the potential to provide better returns than any other savings account.
All Investment 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. Just watch out for early closure charges.
This type of account is not normally an investment in its own right but it does provide you with a platform to invest from. An investment ISA can hold money in order to invest in qualifying sources such as government bonds and corporate bonds as well as shares and stocks.
They are generally available as either self-select ISAs that allow you to invest directly into stocks and shares or as collective investment schemes. Stocks & shares ISA are referred to as ‘tax-efficient’ wrappers, as there is no capital gains tax to be paid on gains made on investments held within the wrapper.
This website contains information only and does not constitute advice or a personal recommendation in any way whatsoever. The value of investments and income from them can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the full amount invested. The tax efficiency of ISAs is based on current tax law and there is no guarantee that tax rules will stay the same in the future.
Different types of investment carry different levels of risk and may not be suitable for all investors. Please ensure that you read the Important Risk Information for further details. Prior to making any decision to invest, you should ensure that you are familiar with the risks associated with a particular investment and should read the product literature. If you are in any doubt as to the suitability of a particular investment, both in respect of its objectives and its risk profile, you should seek independent financial advice.

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.
