How to invest - ISA

ISA

ISAs are designed to encourage more of us to save and invest by limiting the amount of tax that can be taken off our investment. We are pleased to be able to offer an ISA so you can keep more of your investment returns – rather than seeing them being taken in tax.

You can choose to invest your Stocks and Shares ISA allowance of £20,000 for the 2018/2019 tax year in our Investment Company ISA. Invest monthly from only £100 or invest a lump sum from £1,000.

The tax benefits relating to ISA investments may not be maintained. 

Investors should review the relevant Key Information Document (KID) available in the company literature section prior to making an investment decision.

The Aberdeen Standard Investment Companies ISA offers:

  • Minimum monthly investment - £100
  • Minimum lump sum investment - £1000
  • Low annual charge of £24 (plus VAT) per annum, regardless of how many Aberdeen Investment Company ISAs you hold
  • £15 exit fee per sale + VAT

ISA Transfer

Our ISA Transfer enables you to transfer your existing ISAs into your choice of investment companies offered by Aberdeen Standard Investments. The range of companies we offer is wide, with something to suit all types of investor – from general companies to specialist companies, actively managed companies to tracker companies.

In any given investment climate, it is important that you regularly review your investment portfolio.

Investors own many ISAs that they opened over the years; even if you don’t put new money into them, you can still transfer them between managers, ensuring that your investments are working hard for you.

The tax benefits relating to ISA investments may not be maintained. 

Questions to consider when you are looking to transfer your ISA:

  • Is your existing ISA performing well?
  • Are you happy with the type of companies or areas of the world that you originally invested in?
  • Are you comfortable with the charges you are paying to your existing manager or managers?

If the answer is No to any of the above, it may be time to consider transferring your ISA.
