No advice has been provided by Scottish Friendly in relation to this plan. If you are in any doubt as to whether this plan is suitable for you, you should contact a financial adviser for advice. If you do not have a financial adviser, you can get details of local financial advisers by visiting www.unbiased.co.uk. Advisers may charge for providing such advice and should confirm any cost beforehand.
You’re probably aware that you are entitled to save tax-free with a Cash ISA but did you know that you are allowed to have an Investment ISA (also known as a Stocks & Shares ISA) as well? Using some or all of your Investment ISA allowance gives your money access to a wider range of investments than a secure cash account alone.
You can invest up to £15,240 in the current tax year in an Investment ISA, less any amount you have paid into a Cash ISA, Lifetime ISA or an Innovative Finance ISA. So if you already have a different type of ISA with another ISA manager, you can still take out an Investment ISA with Scottish Friendly.
My Style Options (ISA) is an Investment ISA that let's you start investing from as little as £10 a month.
Tax treatment depends on your individual circumstances and tax law may change in the future. Tax-free means the fund your plan invests in grows free of income and capital gains tax (other than tax on dividends from UK shares).
With a choice of flexible payment options, My Style Options (ISA) puts you in control of your money.
Stop, restart, increase or decrease your payments whenever you like.
Access your money instantly, should you ever need it.
Choose if you want to increase your payments each year. (This is called your yearly payment increase rate).
Please remember, if you cash in the plan before the end of 5 years there will be a £50 deduction from your cash-in value.
You can choose to increase your payments each year, if you wish, by a rate to suit you – for example 2.5%, 5% or 10% a year.
In order to check what your monthly premiums would be each year for the first 10 years, check out our handy tool below:
Remember your monthly premium will continue to increase past year 10, however you have the option to change the yearly payment increase rate at any time.
With My Style Options (ISA), you get a choice of two funds so you can pick the one that best suits your needs and investment style. Find out more about each fund on the the Funds tab.
