Stocks and Shares ISA

Learn more about our Stocks and Shares ISA

What is a Stocks and Shares ISA?

‘ISA’ stands for Individual Savings Account, and it’s a tax-efficient way to invest your money. While you’d pay tax on interest from a savings account, an ISA lets you keep all the gains. As a result, your investment pot could have a better chance to grow.

A Stocks and Shares ISA invests in funds, unit trusts, bonds and shares in companies. You can decide the exact make-up of your ISA, and change it whenever you like.

If you’re willing to take some risk with your money, Stocks and Shares ISAs have the potential to offer higher returns than Cash ISAs.

You can put in up £20,000 this tax year, and you don't pay tax when you take the money out.

✓ Take money out anytime
Take money out and add it back in the same tax year without affecting your annual ISA allowance.

Please remember, the value of investments - and the income from them - can go down as well as up, meaning you may get back less than you invest. This information is based on our understanding of existing tax legislation which may change in the future.
