What is a General Account?
It’s an investment account that lets you save for your future – and there’s no upper limit on how much you can invest. That makes it a useful option if you’ve already used up your ISA and pension allowances.
Unlike a Stocks and Shares ISA or Personal Pension, any returns or income from your investments will be subject to tax. How much tax you’ll pay will depend on your circumstances.
You pick the funds for your General Account. You can choose from our wide range of Vanguard funds, including index funds, active funds and ready-made fund portfolios.
