    Why consider our stocks and shares ISA?

    • Invest up to £15,240 a year tax efficiently
    • Earn a variable rate of interest on any cash held in your ISA while you decide where to invest
    • Potential for higher returns than a Cash ISA over the long term
    • Build your portfolio of funds with the help of our step-by-step process
    • Invest from as little as £50 per month or a lump sum of £500 or more

    The value of your stocks and shares ISA can go down as well as up, unlike a Cash ISA. This means you could get back less than you invest.

    Tax benefits may change in the future. There's no minimum investment period but you should consider investing in a stocks and shares ISA for 5 years or more.

    Your investment options

    To help you make the move from saving to self investing we've got two ways you can open your stocks and shares ISA:

    1. If you know which funds you'd like to invest in you can choose them now
    2. If you're unsure which funds to invest in, you can open your ISA with cash

      Why keep cash in your ISA?

      • It gives you a little more time to choose your funds when you open your ISA
      • You have the option to move money out of your investments for a short time without withdrawing it, for example, while deciding which funds to reinvest in
      • You'll earn a variable rate of interest on any cash in your account, please see our interest rates page for the current rate. Any cash held will be subject to our account charge
