Frequently asked questions

You can transfer your investments as either cash (by selling the investments within your ISA and transferring the proceeds) or as stock (which is known as an in-specie transfer).

Yes, there is no requirement to transfer the full balance of your ISA. However, if you keep ISAs with several providers you could miss out on some of the benefits of consolidating your investments – such as easier management, less paperwork and potentially lower fees.

No. If you have already used your ISA allowance, you can still transfer existing Stocks & Shares ISAs or Cash ISAs to us without losing your existing tax-free benefits. If you haven’t used your allowance, you can transfer your existing plan and your annual allowance will still be available.
