• Our Stocks and Shares ISA

    Why consider our Stocks and Shares ISA?

    • Invest from as little as £50 per month or a lump sum of £500 or more
    • 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
    • Take control of your own investments through our online service

    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.
