Investing In An ISA Could Be A Sensible Way To Save

An ISA is a sensible option to start saving. ISAs can be easy to understand, flexible and a tax-efficient way of building up a nest egg for the future.

Whether you’re looking to save in the short or long-term, the range of ISA products available means they could be suited to your needs and requirements.

What Types of ISA Are Available?

There are a number of different ISA (Individual Savings Account) products and providers, but fundamentally there are three main groups of ISA: –

    • Cash ISA – A Cash ISA works in the same way as a typical saving account except there is no income tax on the interest paid. Any investment made into a Cash ISA will deliver a small growth return over time. This growth/interest rate will vary between product and provider, but generally they at similar levels.

      There are two main types of Cash ISA, a fixed or variable rate product. A fixed-rate ISA generally offers higher rates of return but is generally fixed for a set period. A variable ISA allows more flexibility and will enable investors to withdraw funds when required. A Cash ISA is a low-risk investment.

    • Stocks and Shares ISA – With Stocks and Shares ISAs, an investor can put money into the ISA to buy shares, funds and other types of investments. The funds are free from UK capital gains and like a Cash ISA, tax-free. Investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA generally gives your finances the potential to grow faster than with a Cash ISA, but they are riskier and more subject to market influences.

      It’s recommended that before investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA to take financial advice from a regulated financial adviser, due to the risks involved.

    • Lifetime ISA – Lifetime ISAs were created to give people aged between 18 and 39 years a helping hand towards buying a first home. As well as receiving tax-free interest on the investment, holders of Lifetime ISAs additionally received an extra 25% bonus from the Government for every £4,000 invested tax-free*.

      There are strict rules however, on how you can use the government bonus and withdrawing the savings. The Lifetime ISA product superseded the Government-backed Help to Buy ISA.
