Regular investment plan

You don’t need a lump sum to start investing. Set up your regular investment plan today and pay no commission on your contributions. 

Why invest regularly?

  • Investing money regularly could help you ride out the ups and downs of the market. 
    This is called 'pound cost averaging'.

  • You can start small, and it could be a great way to invest if you’re doing it for the first time.

  • Benefit from the power of compounding - saving over the longer term means you can get returns off the money you've made in previous years (especially if you re-invest dividends), accelerating your growth.

  • Invest commission-free - our regular investment service now charges no commission meaning, more of your money is invested for your future.



Why not regularly invest with our ETF Quicklist?

Investing regularly in Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) can help you create a low-cost, diversified investment portfolio. Our ETF Quicklist can help you invest in a particular country or region, or find a new investment theme, such as energy or technology.

Grow your money

Investing in regular instalments can provide some protection if the market suddenly drops. A monthly investment will buy fewer shares or fund units when markets rise and more shares or units when markets fall. In falling markets, that means you can buy more shares at a cheaper price.

Build good habits

Regular contributions are a good first-step, helping you make steady progress towards a financial goal. You can choose to invest in assets that provide percentage dividend returns and reinvest them, helping to give your investments the opportunity to work harder for you and compound their potential growth.

Save yourself time

It’s not easy to read and time the market. If you choose to make regular investments, you will be putting in your money at regular intervals and building for the future, rather than spending your time trying to predict how markets could perform, which even professional investors can struggle to do.

Keep in mind

This is a medium to longer term investment please review your account on a regular basis to make sure you are achieving your investment goals.

Please remember that the value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise, and you may get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure about investing, seek financial advice. There will normally be a charge for that advice. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future.
