Below are a list of potential investments and how they may be right for you.

Investment Saving Account(ISA)

Individual Savings Accounts (ISA) are a tax-free saving vehicle. Most people are aware of cash ISA’s, which operate like a traditional savings account however, stocks and shares ISA’s invest in the stock market and can potentially give better returns than a cash ISA, but with a higher risk. You can invest upto £20,000 per tax year into an ISA and have proven to play a key part in many peoples financial and retirement plans.

Why invest into an ISA?

ISAs are highly portable. It is possible to switch from one provider to another to take advantage of superior interest rates and deals. You could also transfer your funds from a cash-based ISA to a stocks and shares account, and vice versa.

Open-Ended Investment Company (OEIC)

Open Ended Investment Companies are professionally managed collective investment funds. Managers pool money from many investors and buy shares, bonds, property or cash assets and other investments.

Are there advantages to investing in an OEIC?

Economies of scale – When you invest in an OEIC your money is pooled with that of other investors, enabling fund managers to achieve economies of scale when they buy and sell holdings on your behalf.

Investment Bonds

An investment bond is a life insurance policy where you invest a lump sum in a variety of available assets. With an investment bond, a lump sum is paid out at death, end of term or surrender. When the bond is cashed in, how much you get back depends on the success of the investment and any withdrawals made. 

So, what are the advantages of an investment bond?

Venture Capital Trusts (VCTs)

Venture Capital Trust (VCT) are listed companies that invest in other, smaller companies. The tax benefits include Income Tax relief and Capital Gains Tax exemption. Whilst the potential return is higher, there is also an increased risk associated with investing in smaller, unlisted companies.

Why invest in a VCT?

Risk Warning:

When investing your capital is at risk.
The value of your investment can go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount invested.
Investments do not include the same security of capital which is afforded with a deposit account.
VCT’s are high-risk products and are not suitable for everyone. To understand the features and risks please
speak to a qualified investment adviser.
