As this will be the first contribution to your Stocks and Shares ISA in the current tax year, you will have to re-confirm that you agree to the ISA declarations. The process should not take longer than 5 minutes. Please note, any contributions to this year’s ISA will appear in your existing account.

  • 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.
  • Our website offers information, but not personal advice. So if you're not sure which investments are right for you, please ask us for advice.
  • Before you invest, please understand the risks and terms and conditions (including tariff of charges) of your investment. Also, make sure you’ve read and agreed to the ISA declaration and read our key features. You can find the specific risks of any funds in the fund’s Key Investor Information.

You can open a Stocks and Shares ISA in minutes with a lump sum or from as little as £25 per month. Before you apply please make sure you have your debit card and National Insurance number to hand.

On the basis of the above

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.
