Coming soon on Smart Investor
The value of investments can fall as well as rise and you could get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure about investing, seek independent advice.
In November 2018 we made some improvements to the way the Smart Investor service looks online and how certain transactions are made. In this first phase of changes, we’ve made it easier and simpler for you to use our service.
We’re listening to your feedback so that we can introduce the features you’d like to see:
- We've updated the My hub page to make it easier for you to see what you hold in your account(s) and how much cash you have available to invest
- By adding new quick link Invest and Pay in buttons, in more places, this should make it simpler for you to add to your account(s) or invest.
What's changing next?
In early 2019 we'll be making even more improvements, for example:
- We'll be making our investment news and Barclays-led research easily accessible from the My hub page to help you make smarter investment decisions
- You'll also soon be able to open a SIPP account in addition to your other account(s). A SIPP is a type of tax-efficient personal pension that usually offers you access to a wider choice of investments than other types of pension. Remember that tax rules can change and their effects on you will depend on your individual circumstances.
The changes we're making won't end there. Smart Investor is constantly evolving, and we'll keep you updated on all the improvements we’re planning to make. We don't offer financial advice, so if you're unsure where to invest, seek professional independent financial advice. Investments can fall as rise in value, so you could get back less than you put in.
