A glance at My UK Tracker Choice (ISA)

|Investment features||What you need to consider|
- Tax treatment depends on your individual circumstances. Tax law may change in the future.
- Tax-free means the policy grows free of income and capital gains tax (other than tax that's already paid, i.e. on dividends from UK shares).
- You can have one Cash ISA, one Innovative Finance ISA and one Investment ISA in each tax year. You can have as many policies as you like within your Investment ISA provided you do not exceed the annual ISA limit. The maximum you can invest in a Investment ISA is £15,240 in the current tax year less any amounts subscribed to a Cash ISA and/or Innovative Finance ISA with another ISA manager.
- To apply you must be a UK resident aged 18 or over.

A very British investment
As you may know, the ISA is a very British way of saving or investing tax-efficiently for the future. So if you have a savings goal in mind as to what you’d like to put money aside for, be it a special holiday, that new car or just a rainy day, this ISA could be just your cup of tea.
In addition to the well-known Cash ISA and the new Innovative Finance ISA, you can also have an Investment ISA which is what we offer here at Scottish Friendly. Our very British My UK Tracker Choice (ISA) invests in our UK Tracker fund which tracks well-known high street brands and companies listed in the UK. You might recognise a few of the names; Tesco, BskyB and BT. For more information on the UK Tracker fund click on the Fund tab.
Affordability you control
We’d all like to have more money and from £10 a month or a £100 lump sum, you could be better off in the future. You don’t need to break the bank - by investing a little each month, in five to ten years’ time you could have a lump sum of money to do with as you please.
You’ve also got complete control. You can choose to stop payments for a while if the need arises and then restart them again at a time to suit you. You can also raise or lower your premiums when your pocket allows. And for those unforeseen circumstances, you can withdraw your cash at any time.
You can register for My Plans, our online system, which allows you to manage your Scottish Friendly ISA at a time that suits you. It's mobile friendly too allowing you to always be in control, wherever you have internet access.
Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances which may change in the future. Stock market investments can go down as well as up and you could get back less than you have paid in.
Want to increase your payment each year?
Once you’re in a regular investment habit, you might want to try to invest a little more each year to take inflation into account or simply because you’d like to reach your goal that little bit sooner. Another feature of our My UK Tracker Choice (ISA) is the option to automatically increase your payments each year by a rate to suit you. You have the choice to increase by 2.5%, 5% or 10% each year, for as long as you wish.
In order to check what your monthly premiums would be each year for the first 10 years, by applying a yearly increase rate, check out our handy tool below:
Remember your monthly premium will continue to increase past year 10, however you have the ability to change or stop your payment increase at any time.
A welcome gift just for you
