What is a Stocks and Shares ISA

Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs) are savings accounts which were introduced by the government to help people save money for the future in a tax-efficient way. There are two main choices today - a Cash ISA and a Stocks and Shares ISA.

Here are four reasons why we like Stocks and Shares ISAs

  • Potential to outperform cash

    Although there are no guarantees, over the long-term, stocks and shares have shown to perform better than cash.

  • Tax advantages

    With a Stocks and Shares ISA you won’t pay Capital Gains Tax on any profits you make. All dividends are tax-free, too.

     

  • Easy access

    You don’t need a lot to get going – just a few pounds is all you need and you can access your money whenever you want – it’s not locked away.

     

  • Flexible investing

    Access a wide range of investments which include some of the biggest companies from around the globe.
