What is an ISA?

An ISA is a savings account set up with an ISA provider, which benefits from a number of tax advantages. There are four types of ISAs: cash, stocks & shares, innovative finance and lifetime. Beanstalk offers a stocks & shares ISA.

What is a stocks & shares ISA?

A stocks & shares ISA allows you to put money into a range of different investments. Beanstalk ISA and JISAs have a simple choice of two tracker funds (an L&G cash fund and a Fidelity global shares fund).

What is the ISA limit?

ISAs have a contribution limit of £20,000 total per year.

How do I transfer an ISA to Beanstalk?

Transferring is really simple: when you apply for a Beanstalk account, we will ask you if you have an existing account to transfer. We need a few details from you and then we take care of the rest.

AS WITH ANY INVESTMENT THE VALUE CAN GO DOWN AS WELL AS UP. PAST PERFORMANCE IS NO INDICATOR OF FUTURE PERFORMANCE. THE TAX TREATMENT OF ISAS DEPENDS ON YOUR INDIVIDUAL CIRCUMSTANCES AND MAY BE SUBJECT TO CHANGE IN THE FUTURE.
