If you’re ready to invest, we’re here to make it easy.
Our investment accounts let you invest in UK stocks and shares, deposits, gilts, managed funds and exchange traded funds (ETFs), so you can create an investment portfolio that’s right for you.
If you have already invested the full amount into an ISA, our investment accounts give you another way to invest, with no maximum limit. If you simply want to trade a selection of UK stocks and shares, gilts or ETFs.
If you have multiple goals or reasons for investing you can open as many accounts as you want. Each account can hold your ideal combination of our available investments.
Have you used your full ISA allowance?

Investing in funds
Investment funds offer many benefits – a diverse range of assets, a broad spread of risk and full-time, professional management. You can invest for income, growth, or a blend of both.
Funds are collective investments. They make it easy to diversify your investments across different asset classes and markets. Your money is pooled with that of others and invested by a professional manager across a wide range of stocks, shares and bonds.
Why is diversification important? Because different assets perform in different ways, depending on where we are in the overall economic cycle. A diverse portfolio gives you exposure to lots of different opportunities, with a broad spread of risk.
Funds can also provide access to investment strategies not usually available to individual investors, such as hedge funds.
As well our own managed funds, we also offer the Close 50 – funds from other providers that our research team believe offer interesting opportunities.
You can see all the funds available by clicking on the ‘Search Investments’ tab.
Pick your own stocks
Our online investment service gives you an easy, cost-effective way to trade in UK-listed stocks and shares.
The value of investments can go down as well as up, and you may get back less than you invest.
