Important information - The information on this page is to help you make your own decisions and is not personal advice. Inflation reduces the future spending power of money. Tax rules for ISAs can change and their benefits depend on your personal circumstances.

Cash ISA

  • Fixed rate (fixed rate of interest over a fixed term).
  • Easy access (variable rate with flexibility to access your money).
  • Limited access (variable rate and limited access to your money).

Apply for a Cash ISA

How it works

  1. Open a new HL Cash ISA and add at least £10,000 by debit card to one or more savings products by 25 April 2024.
  2. Make sure you have an Active Savings Account open by 24 October 2024. This is where we'll pay your £25. It’s our cash savings account, and free to set up.
  3. We'll pay your £25 cash bonus on 25 October 2024.

Please note

If you'd just like to open an HL Cash ISA without claiming the bonus, you do not need to open an Active Savings Account.

Latest Cash ISA rates

Products can be added or withdrawn at any time.

AER (Annual Equivalent Rate) shows what the interest rate would be if it was paid and compounded once each year. It helps you compare the rates on different savings products. Once you have opened a fixed term product the rate won't change, but rates on easy and limited access products can vary.

Tax-free interest/profit in the Cash ISA is paid free of UK income tax.

Tax rules can change and their benefits depend on your circumstances.

Cash ISA Charges

We don't charge you directly to have a Cash ISA, instead we charge our banking partners. This means the same or similar products offered directly by the banks and building societies may have different interest rates to those available through the HL Cash ISA.

Cash ISA Transfers

You can transfer money from your HL Cash ISA to your HL Stocks and Shares ISA online. Currently, you can't transfer money from other ISAs into your HL Cash ISA.

Protecting your money

FSCS protection: Money held in a savings product with one of our banking partners has Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) protection up to £85,000.

Fully regulated: Our banking partners are authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority.

Safeguarding: Money in the Cash ISA which isn't in a savings product is held in the transaction account. As Hargreaves Lansdown Savings Ltd is not a bank, money in the transaction account is not covered by the FSCS. Instead, it's protected under the Financial Conduct Authority's safeguarding rules.

Account security: Alongside your usual log in details and account encryption technology, we use two-factor authentication with automatic timeouts to help protect you and your money.
