Take control of your financial future

The investments we sell are generally designed to be held for 5 to 10 years – and the value of investments can go down as well as up, so you could get back less than you invested. If you're unsure if an investment is right for you, seek independent financial advice.

Investments from Barclays

Our investments are offered by Barclays Stockbrokers, which is a part of Barclays Bank PLC and provides a range of online accounts as well as education and tools to support your decisions and help you to monitor, top up and manage your investments.

If you’re new to investing, an investment ISA is a great place to start because it allows you to invest in a tax-efficient way.

With an investment ISA, you can:

  • Invest up to £15,000 and earn returns that are free from Income and Capital Gains Tax 1
  • Select from a range of funds chosen by Citywire – an impartial, independent funds research provider
  • Access your investments, useful tools and research online – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Benefit from no ISA admin fee and no initial or dealing charges if you only invest in funds (fund-related fees still apply)

For the 2014/2015 tax year, the ISA allowance has increased to £15,000 and you can save it all in cash, investments or a combination of both. Any deposits put into an ISA since 6 April 2014 will count towards the £15,000 limit. For more information, see our Guide to ISAs

Please bear in mind that:

  • ISA rules can change in the future and the value of this favourable tax treatment to you deliends on your individual circumstances
  • Unlike cash, investments can fall in value, so you might get back less than you invested

Remember, we don’t give advice, so if you’re unsure about investing, please seek independent guidance.
