Stocks and Shares ISAs

19.5 You must be aged 18 or over and resident in the UK to use our Stocks and Shares ISA channel.

19.6 The Stocks and Shares ISA channel on this website provides you with access to information on Stocks and Shares ISAs and a selection of investment funds that you may wish to consider investing in through a Stocks and Shares ISA. We have categorised the funds depending on the level of a risk we believe those funds involve and the process by which we do this and the different levels of risk are explained on this website. The funds described on this website will invest in a wide range of investments, including other funds and the performance of the funds (including any income you may receive) is not guaranteed. The performance of the funds will depend on many factors, including the performance of underlying investments selected by the fund managers. Some funds may involve exposure to investments in emerging markets, smaller companies and/or exposures to different currencies which may involve greater risk to the value of your investment. You should consider fully all information provided by the fund about the risks that particular products may involve.

19.7 Please be aware that the value of investments (including the investment funds described in our Stocks and Shares ISA channel) can fall as well as rise, and that you may not get back the full amount invested. Your investment is not guaranteed and the price of investments will depend on fluctuations in the financial markets, which are outside our control. Inflation may reduce the value of your investments over time. Past performance is not a guide to future performance and the favourable tax treatment of ISAs may not be maintained in the future if UK tax law and HM Revenue & Customs changes.

19.8 Please also be aware that once you have identified investments that are of interest to you, we will introduce you to the investment fund or to an ISA provider with whom you may then decide to complete the purchase. If you decide to proceed with your purchase of a Stocks and Shares ISA and/or investment funds you will do so only with that person and you will not enter into any contract with us. We will not hold or handle client money in respect of any product or service selected by you when using the Stocks and Shares ISA channel.

19.9 We are not responsible for, and we accept no liability in connection with, any act, omission, error or default by any investment fund or ISA provider or any other third party in the provision of any product or service, or the execution of, or any investment made by you. The provider of the product or service that you wish to purchase should provide you with all required information regarding the product or service as part of the process by which you make a purchase. This will include information on charges and expenses relevant to the product or service and the possible effect of those charges on the value of your investment over time. You should contact them directly should you require any further information about the product or service they offer.
