Whether you’re thinking about opening an ISA for the first time or you're an experienced investor looking to transfer one, our flexible, transparent and expertly-built stocks and shares ISA could be right for you.

What is an ISA
A smart way to save

Saving into an ISA — an individual savings account — is a great way to protect your money from tax. Cash ISAs are the most popular, and your first £85,000 should be protected by the FSCS. However, cash ISAs are losing out to low interest rates and inflation.

Investing in a stocks and shares ISA over the longer term could deliver a higher return. Saving all or some of your annual £20,000 ISA allowance into a stocks and shares ISA can be a great way to grow your wealth. Remember, as with all investing, your capital is at risk.

  • Easy setup
    You can start an ISA online in just 10 minutes.

  • Value for money
    We generally prefer to use exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

  • No hidden fees
    You’ll always know exactly how much you are paying.

  • Know where you stand
    Keep an eye on your account wherever you are, whenever you want.

  • Total flexibility
    Withdraw or transfer to another ISA at any time.
