How do I start investing?

You can get started with investing in three steps:

  • Choose an account

    You have four to choose from – a Stocks and Shares ISA, a Personal Pension, a Junior ISA and a General Account.

    Each account comes with different investment limits and different tax advantages, so it’s worth spending a little time comparing them to work out which is right for you. Learn more about our accounts.

  • Pick funds to invest in

    We have a range of over 75 funds to invest in – giving you plenty of options if you want to build your own portfolio. Learn more about our funds.

  • Decide how much to invest

    Get started with a single payment from £500 by debit card, or set up a monthly payment from £100 by Direct Debit.

    Alternatively, you can start by transferring investments from another provider. Learn more about transfers.
