Halifax Self-Select Stocks and Shares ISA.

Please remember that the value of an investment and the income from it can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invested.

We don't provide advice so if you are in any doubt about buying and selling shares or making your own investment decisions we recommend you seek advice from a suitably qualified Financial Adviser.

What is a Stocks and Shares ISA?

A Stocks and Shares ISA is a tax-efficient way to invest money as any profit is exempt from Capital Gains Tax. You can choose to invest your money in a wide range of ISA qualifying stocks and shares from both the UK (including AIM stocks) and on six international markets. You can also invest in funds, bonds, gilts and more - our award-winning ISA is self-select so you decide exactly what you want to invest in.

  • Pay no Capital Gains Tax on any potential profit.
  • Trade on seven world markets with our award-winning online share dealing service.
  • Low cost dealing and administration charges.

How much can I invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA?

Each year the Government allows you to invest in a tax-efficient product called an ISA, or Individual Savings Account. The maximum amount you can invest in the current tax year is £15,240. You can choose to invest your full allowance into either a stocks and shares ISA or a cash ISA, or alternatively you can split your allowance between a cash ISA and a stocks and shares ISA. For example, if you invest £10,000 into your stocks and shares ISA, you must save no more than £5,240 in a cash ISA.
