- Revive poorly performing investments
If you hold poorly performing investments why not transfer to Vantage and select a new investment? You make your own investment decisions in Vantage and can choose from more than 2,400 funds with absolutely no initial charge, together with shares, investment trusts, corporate bonds, gilts and ETFs. Remember the value of investments can fall as well as rise so you could get back less than you invest.
- Your gateway to the lowest cost funds
We have used the bargaining power of over 500,000 Vantage investors, to negotiate super-low cost funds for our clients. The average annual management charge for a Wealth 150 fund is 0.65%, and just 0.54% for a Wealth 150+ fund. We expect the average charge for a Wealth 150 fund through most other brokers will be 0.76%. This represents a significant saving for Hargreaves Lansdown clients.
Transfer free of charge
It's free to transfer ISAs and funds from over 40 providers. If your provider is not listed please contact our Helpdesk or your existing provider to check transfer terms. It's also free to lodge any share certificates into the Vantage Service.
If you're transferring a pension, please check you won't lose any valuable guarantees or incur excessive exit fees before submitting your transfer form. If you're transferring plans already in income drawdown, a word of caution: income drawdown in the Vantage SIPP doesn't include advice. So, if you currently receive advice, this will stop unless you arrange to receive it separately.
There is an annual charge to hold funds in Vantage. It is tiered within bands: 0.45% per annum on the first £250,000 of funds; 0.25% for funds between £250,000 and £1m; 0.1% for funds between £1m and £2m, and no charge on the value of funds over £2m. There is no annual charge to hold shares, investment trusts, corporate bonds, ETFs and other investments in the Vantage Fund & Share Account, however the annual charge to hold these investments in the SIPP and ISA is 0.45% (capped at £45 per annum in the ISA and £200 per annum in the SIPP).

Before you decide to transfer please ensure you understand how the transfer will be made and that you won't lose any valuable guarantees or other benefits, or incur excessive exit fees. Pensions will be transferred as cash. Most groups will allow you to transfer ISAs, funds and shares as stock but if you choose to transfer as cash remember that you will be out of the market while the transfer takes place. This may work in your favour if the market falls but if it rises you will not benefit from any growth until your money is reinvested.
In Vantage you make your own investment decisions. Investments go down in value as well as up so you could get back less than you invest. Pension rules we refer to are those that currently apply; they could change in the future but you cannot normally access the money until at least age 55. Tax reliefs depend on your circumstances. This website is not personal advice, if you are unsure of an investment's suitability you should seek advice.
