The tax year ends on the 5th April, if you don’t make the most of your £20,000 ISA allowance then you’ll lose it.

An ISA protects any potential future profit from Capital Gains Tax and any dividend payments from Income Tax.

We know that looking after your hard-earned cash is really important to you but with interest rates remaining at all time lows, you might want to consider investing with the aim of making your money work harder.

We have designed our ready-made investments to help you diversify your money across a range of markets, without the complexity of picking your own stocks and shares.

If you haven’t invested before, or you prefer to leave it to the experts, our ready-made investments could be the right choice for you.

  • Choice – you can choose between three funds with a level of risk you’re comfortable with – high, medium or low risk. Plus, you can hold them in an Investment ISA (up to £20,000 per tax year) or an Investment Account.
  • Diversified – our investments are ready-made so they give you exposure to a diverse mix of shares, bonds, property and more.
  • Flexible – invest regularly from £100 per month, or with a minimum lump sum of £2,000.

Although there is no tie in period, our investments are designed for the medium to long-term so you should plan to hold them for at least five years. Please remember that the value of all investments can fall as well as rise, and you may get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure about investing, seek independent advice.
