Cash ISA from Selftrade
Selftrade is one of the UK's leading execution-only stockbrokers and is now the first broker-bank in the country.
Becoming a broker-bank means Selftrade is authorised to take deposits by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) and can, for the first time, offer cash Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs) alongside investment products.
One of the advantages to opening a Cash ISA with Selftrade is that you can manage your money alongside your other investments - using one simple platform to ensure you stay in control of your finances.
Why choose Cash ISA?
Unlike Shares ISAs, there is no market risk to your capital when you open a Cash ISA. The return you generate on your cash is determined by the interest rate attached to the account, rather than market movements. Interest is exempt from UK tax making this a tax-efficient way to save, although tax rules may change and any tax benefits depend on individual circumstances.
This means you can open a Cash ISA with the most competitive rates to get your money to work for you, without having to worry that the value of your savings will drop unexpectedly. Another reason that Cash ISAs are popular is that they allow you to save up to £5,340* per financial year tax-free and you can move funds from your Selftrade Cash ISA to Shares ISAs at any time which takes 2 – 3 days to complete.
Transferring all or part of your balance from a cash product to one where you can trade shares may be a route you wish to go down if you want the potential of higher returns.
If you want to keep your Cash ISA and also open a Shares ISA, Selftrade is the ideal choice. Using the simple online platform, you will be able to keep track of both of your accounts with ease.
Selftrade only charge a single annual management fee of £35+VAT, regardless of how many accounts you hold, so you need not worry about extra expenses cropping up either.
If you only open a Cash ISA with Selftrade, the management fee will not apply.
