Your money is losing value in the bank
If you're saving in the bank or with a Cash ISA, your money is actually losing value. That's because the UK is currently experiencing its highest rate of inflation since 2012 - reaching a peak of more than 3% last year - meaning investments returning less than inflation are depreciating.
In 2017, our Balanced Fully-Managed Investment Portfolio returned 8.2%. If you compare that to the 0.91% Bank of England Cash ISA Rate, then it's clear taking some investment risk over the long term can protect your capital against the threat of inflation and maximise your returns. So, why not invest by opening or transferring an ISA and do more with your money?

Common questions about investing
Can I withdraw from my investment?
If you invest in a Stocks & Shares ISA or General Investment Account, you can withdraw at any time.
It takes around 10 working days in most circumstances to sell your investment within an ISA or General Investment Account and transfer the money to your bank account. If you invest in a pension, you can only withdraw from 55 years old and different timescales apply.
Is investing risky?
Investing is a balance of risk and return and it’s important you invest in a Portfolio that’s suitable for you.
That’s why we ask questions about your investment goal and risk preferences when you open an account with us. In general, the more risk you are willing to take, the better chances you have of getting higher returns from your investment. The reverse is also true, less risk usually means lower returns.
