UK Ethical Fund

from Standard Life

Allows ISA Transfers
  • Protection Scheme: FSCS
  • Fund Choice: Invest via Fidelity Funds Supermarket & get a discount when you buy this fund
  • Invest From: £50 pm

Why we like it: The UK ethical fund aims to provide long term growth by investing in a diversified portfolio of UK equity assets that meet Standard Life's strict ethical criteria. Current areas of exclusion include alcohol, tobacco and companies deemed to cause environmental damage - the latter typically rules out most oil and mining stocks. Fund manager Lesley Duncan has an extensive track record in both UK equity and ethical investing, having taking over the reins of this fund in 2004.

Important: Please remember the value of your investment and any income from it may fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. You may get back less than you invest.

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 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.
