Healthy Living Discount

You could pay no product charge at all on your investment – it’s as simple as tracking your daily steps

Saving for your future isn’t just about saving money, it’s about making sure your health is there to enjoy your savings. So as well as helping you take care of your wealth, we help you take care of your health - and reward you for it.

What is the Healthy Living Discount?

The Healthy Living Discount is a unique discount on your product charges. The more you look after yourself, the bigger the savings on product charges. And when you save on your product charges, you have the opportunity to grow you investment even further.

How does the Healthy Living Discount work?

  • 1

    Open a VitalityInvest plan. You'll automatically have access to our healthy living programme which gives you discounts from well-known brands like Champneys and Garmin

  • 2

    Maintain healthy habits by doing things like tracking your activity and having regular health checks. These earn you Vitality points which help you build a Vitality status - Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum

  • 3

    The higher your Vitality status, the bigger the rewards and the more you save on product charges. Achieve Platinum status you’ll pay £0 product charge

See how your product charge reduces if you track your healthy habits:

Value of investment  Annual product charge based on Vitality status
  Bronze / Silver status  Gold status  Platinum status 
 Up to £30k 0.50% 0.30%  No product charge
Amount over £30k up to £75k 0.40%  0.25%  No product charge
 Amount over £75k up to £250k 0.30%  0.20%  No product charge
 Amount over £250k up to £500k No product charge No product charge No product charge
 Amount over £500k No product charge No product charge No product charge
These product charges apply to plans opened during our special offer period, 22nd July 2019 to 20th December 2019. With our special offer, after 12 months we'll refund all the product charges you have paid so far. Bronze customers also pay the Silver product charge, giving you a head start to even more value.

Example calculation

You want to invest £20,000 towards a new house. Your annual product charge will be 0.50%, which then adds up to £100 a year.

You open a VitalityInvest ISA, go for a health check and start tracking your daily steps, and you earn Vitality points. Your Vitality status automatically starts at Bronze but through your engagement in healthy living, reaches Gold. As a result of the Healthy Living Discount, your product charge for the year would be £60.

You continue tracking your daily steps and you reach Platinum status, you then save yourself £100 a year on product charges.
