READY-MADE INVESTMENTS.


Changes to our service.

Like all businesses we have to work differently amid concerns regarding COVID-19 and prioritise the safety of our staff and customers. As a result we are temporarily stopping all applications from new customers.

We will review this decision regularly and will switch applications back on as soon as we can.

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.

For more information about the three funds, you can read Our Fund Range and Investments which contains details of how the funds are managed, their objectives and risks, and a detailed breakdown of the charges.


Low-cost charges

Our charges are based on the value of your total investment and are paid every year. They vary depending on the fund but the maximum values are:

  • a service fee of 0.24%
  • a maximum Ongoing Charge of 0.26%
  • and transaction costs which vary depending on the fund but are not greater than 0.17%.

For example, if you invested in Managed Growth Fund 2 you would pay £6.50 in charges for every £1000 invested.
