See how easy it is to set up a Stocks & Shares ISA with us
Tell us how much you’d like to invest
First, we’ll ask you how much you’d like to invest today, if you’d like to add a monthly investment and how long you plan to invest for. You can change your mind about your monthly amount later and with a Stocks & Shares ISA you can withdraw at any time.
Answer a few questions about your spending habits
We’ll ask you how much you earn and spend each month. This is to make sure you can afford to invest, including any monthly amount you’ve chosen.
Estimate how much is in your emergency fund
We recommend you have around three month’s expenses saved up for emergencies as this can help you avoid taking on short-term liabilities for the unexpected. If you don’t, our Stocks & Shares ISA and General Investment Accounts could be the place to start, as you can access your money in 7-10 days.
Estimate your assets and liabilities
We’ll ask you how much you have in assets, such as a home, savings or other investments. We’ll then balance this against any liabilities you have, for example a mortgage, loan or credit card. If you have more debts than assets it might benefit you to pay these off before investing, especially if the debt is expensive.
Tell us if you’ve invested before
It’s important you understand how investing with us works, including how we manage your money and the potential risks involved. Depending on your experience, we’ll show you some simple explanations to help you learn more about our service.
Take our simple risk assessment
We’ll ask you 11 multiple choice questions about how long you plan to invest for, how you might later withdraw from your account and your attitude to risk and reward. There are no right answers here and we have a range of Portfolios to suit many different types of investor.
View the Portfolio that’s most suitable for you
Based on your score in our risk assessment, we’ll show you a Portfolio that matches your result. You’ll see where in the world we’d spread your money, the fund managers and asset classes we use, and the total cost to you.
