Stay in control - stop, restart, increase or decrease your monthly payments anytime.

Please note that Scottish Friendly doesn’t offer a Cash ISA. Keep in mind stock market investments can go down as well as up, so you could get back less than you’ve paid in, except on your 10-year anniversary. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and tax rules could change in the future.

Your single fund investment choice

Get yourself a My Easy Choice (ISA), and:

  • Invest from £10 a month, a £100 lump sum - or both.

  • Your money will be invested in a My Choice investment policy within a Scottish Friendly ISA. This policy then invests in our Unitised With-Profits fund.

  • It comes with a minimum cash sum on your 10-year anniversary of investing (which is at least as much as you've invested). That's provided you don't make any withdrawals or switch money out of the fund.

  • Plus there's the potential for growth.

The fund information together with the Key Information Document (KID) gives you an overview of the fund, including any charges and should be read alongside the Product Guide.
