  • All investments should be regarded as for the long term because they can go down in value as well as up, so you could get back less than you invested. Any yield is variable and not guaranteed.
  • Remember tax rules can change and the reliefs depend on your personal circumstances.
  • Nothing on the website should be regarded as personal advice so if you have any doubts as to the suitability of an investment for your personal circumstances please contact us for written advice.
  • Before you invest, please understand the risks and Terms & Conditions (including tariff of charges) of your investment and ensure you have read and agreed to the ISA declaration. The specific risks of any funds are detailed in the Vantage Key Features.

You can open a Stocks & Shares ISA in minutes. Before you apply please ensure you have your National Insurance number to hand. You can open your ISA with a lump sum or save monthly from as little as £25 per month.

For your own benefit and protection you should read our Terms & Conditions carefully before committing to an investment. If you do not understand any point please ask us for further information. When you use our services we will take this as acceptance and agreement of our terms, and you will be bound by them.

I apply to subscribe for a Stocks & Shares ISA for the tax year 2016/17 (the first tax year to which this declaration relates) and each subsequent tax year in which I choose to make a subscription. I have read, agreed to and retained the Terms & Conditions, the Important Investment Notes, and Key Features of the Vantage ISA. Where I am investing in a fund or an ETF, I am doing so on the basis of the information contained in the Key Features, Simplified Prospectus or Key Investor Information Document provided to me on paper, CD rom or via www.hl.co.uk.

I declare that:

  • All subscriptions made, or to be made, belong to me and that I am 18 years of age or over.
  • I have not subscribed, and will not subscribe more than the overall subscription limit in total to a Stocks & Shares ISA, a Cash ISA and an Innovative Finance ISA in the same tax year. I have not subscribed, and will not subscribe, to another Stocks & Shares ISA in the same tax year that I subscribe to this Stocks & Shares ISA.
  • I am resident in the United Kingdom for tax purposes or, if not so resident, either perform duties which, by virtue of Section 28 of Income Tax (Earnings & Pensions) Act 2003 (Crown employees serving overseas), are treated as being performed in the United Kingdom, or I am married to, or in a civil partnership with, a person who performs such duties. I will inform Hargreaves Lansdown If I cease to be so resident or to perform such duties or be married to, or in a civil partnership with, a person who performs such duties.

I authorise Hargreaves Lansdown:

  • To hold my cash subscriptions, ISA investments, interest, dividends and any other rights or proceeds in respect of those investments and any other cash.
  • To make on my behalf any claims to relief from tax in respect of ISA investments.

The declaration and the information I will give in my application is correct to the best of my knowledge and belief and shall be the basis of the contract between me and Hargreaves Lansdown. I will notify Hargreaves Lansdown without delay of changes to these particulars. I have not received, and will not receive, advice from Hargreaves Lansdown.

In addition to the declaration please read the following statement regarding Hargreaves Lansdown's communications with you.

Hargreaves Lansdown Plc and its group companies will send or email you complimentary issues of our investment publications and information about new products and services.

  • All investments should be held for the long term. They can go down in value as well as up, so you could get back less than you invested. Any yield is variable and not guaranteed.
  • Tax rules can change and the reliefs depend on your personal circumstances.
  • Once in a pension your money is not usually accessible until at least age 55 (57 from 2028), up to 25% usually tax free and the rest taxed as income. There are no withdrawal limits although remember your pension probably needs to last throughout your retirement in order to maintain your standard of living.
  • The Vantage SIPP is for people who want to choose their own investments, without advice. Nothing on the website should be regarded as personal advice. If you have any doubts if an investment is right for you, please contact us for advice.
  • If transferring a pension, please ensure you won't lose any valuable guarantees or other benefits, or incur excessive exit fees.
  • Please read the HL Vantage SIPP declaration, Terms & Conditions (including tariff of charges), Important Investment Notes and the Vantage SIPP Key Features (including the Transfer and Contribution Checklists and Common Transfer Declaration) carefully. By applying for our services you agree to be bound by our terms so it is important you understand these documents; please contact us if you have any queries.

I confirm I am applying to join the HL Vantage SIPP. I agree to be bound by the Scheme Rules, and acknowledge that these have been made available to me by Hargreaves Lansdown.

I confirm that I will be a relevant UK individual in any tax year in which personal contributions are paid.

I declare that the total contributions that I will make to the HL Vantage SIPP and any other Registered Pension Scheme where I am entitled to relief under Section 188 of the Finance Act 2004 will not exceed the higher of:

  1. The basic amount (currently £3,600) or
  2. 100% of my Relevant UK Earnings (within the meaning of section 189 of the Finance Act 2004) for that tax year.

This declaration and the particulars given in this application are, to the best of my knowledge and belief, correct and complete.

If an event occurs which means that I will no longer be entitled to relief under to Section 188 of the Finance Act 2004, I will inform Hargreaves Lansdown Asset Management by 5th April of the tax year in which the event occurs or 30 days after the event if later.

If I make a contribution, of which part or all is not eligible for tax relief, I will notify you separately in writing on or before the date of the contribution. I will advise Hargreaves Lansdown Asset Management Ltd, in writing, within 30 days if I cease to be a United Kingdom resident.

I have not received advice from Hargreaves Lansdown regarding the merits of entering into, or the suitability of any aspect of the HL Vantage SIPP unless that aspect has been covered under a separate agreement for individual advice from a Hargreaves Lansdown Financial Adviser. If I have any doubts I will seek personal advice, in particular regarding the merits of the various pension options I may have available to me now and in the future.

I allow Hargreaves Lansdown to process my application using the information provided. This declaration and any other declaration made by me in connection with this application shall be the basis of the contract between me and Hargreaves Lansdown Asset Management Ltd.

I confirm I have not registered with HM Revenue and Customs to protect pension funds built up from a potential Lifetime Allowance tax charge.

  • In the past most investors who held funds, such as unit trusts and OEICs, paid a single annual management charge to the manager of their chosen funds. This charge often included an element of commission which the fund manager shared with brokers, such as Hargreaves Lansdown, to help pay for their service. We call these funds 'inclusive' funds.

    New FCA rules mean annual management charges of funds purchased after 6 April 2014 do not include commission to help pay for services such as Vantage. As a result of the FCA's new rules, fund management groups have launched new versions of their funds with lower annual management charges. We call these 'unbundled' funds.


  • We will pay interest on money held as cash in the Capital Account. The rate of interest will depend on the value of the cash you hold. View current rates of interest

    Interest is not payable on money held in the Income account, except in the Vantage Cash ISA.


  • Yes, we offer three types of account to invest for children.

    Junior ISAs

    Junior ISAs offer a tax efficient way to invest for eligible children. Once the Junior ISA has been opened by someone with parental responsibility for the child anyone can then make a contribution up to the annual limit (currently £4,080 per child per tax year).

    Find out more about Junior ISAs

    Junior SIPPs

    Child pensions, such as the Vantage Junior SIPP, are an increasingly popular way to invest for children due to the tax relief available. Anyone can contribute up to £3,600 gross per tax year into a pension, such as a SIPP, for a child resident in the UK.

    Find out more about Junior SIPPs

    Junior Investment Account

    You can open a Vantage Fund & Share Account under a bare trust where an adult acts as the trustee, administering the account for the benefit of the child. Application and election for bare trust forms are available in the free Guide to Investing for Children which also contains further details on investing through bare trusts.

    Please remember the value of tax savings depends on the child's circumstances and tax rules can change over time.


  • The minimum amount to open a Vantage Fund & Share Account is £1. The minimum account opening balance for a Vantage ISA or SIPP is £100.

    Monthly savings can be set up from as little as £25 a month. The minimum lump sum investment into a fund is £100.


  • The security of your assets is paramount, and, as a FTSE 100 company regulated by the Financial Services Authority, you can be confident when investing with Hargreaves Lansdown.

  • Before you withdraw money by electronic transfer you need to set up a Nominated Bank Account. This can be done online via our secure website, or in writing. For security purposes you will need to validate an addition or change of your Nominated Bank Account. When you add or change a Nominated Bank Account we will post a validation code to the account holder at their registered address. You then simply log in to your online account and enter the code to confirm the changes.

    Online withdrawals (from the ISA and Fund & Share Account): To withdraw money to your Nominated Bank Account simply log in, select the account you would like to withdraw from, go to the "Cash" section and choose "Withdraw money" from the quick links box. Payment will be made by Faster Payment and there is no charge for this service.

    Please note: We reserve the right to return money, whether received by cheque, bank transfer or debit card to the source it originated, subject to normal banking clearance times. Once money is withdrawn from a Vantage ISA it cannot be reinstated and you will permanently lose this portion of your ISA allowance.

    Telephone: Having set up a Nominated Bank Account, you can call our Client Accounts Team on 0117 980 9801 with your Master Password to withdraw money from your account.

    Post: Please complete and return a Cash Withdrawal Form.
