Our Stocks & Shares ISA

With an ISA allowance of £20,000 for 2017/18, our Stocks & Shares ISA is a great way to invest your money for the long term. You can pick from our 4 ready-made funds or select funds yourself from our full range.

From £50 a month

Start with a lump sum of £500 or pay in as little as £50 a month.

Account flexibility

Manage and track your ISA with our online investment service.

Anytime withdrawals

Take money from your ISA whenever you need to.

So whether you’re investing for a once-in-a-lifetime holiday or a rainy day, our Stocks & Shares ISA could suit you. 

Is investing right for you?

Every investment decision is based on your risk and return appetite, the way you’d like to invest, and understanding how ISA's work.

Why a stocks & shares ISA?

Stocks & shares ISAs might carry a little more risk than a cash ISA or a savings account, but could also increase your gains. Of course, this does mean you’ll need to be comfortable with the ups and downs of the market, but depending on your risk appetite, a stocks & shares ISA could be just for you.

How do you choose?

You could use our tool to select one of our 4 ready-made funds based on your preferred risk level, choose from a shortlist of around 70 funds hand-picked by our Aviva Investors experts, or build your own portfolio by exploring our full range of investment options. And if you need some help, you can ask a financial adviser.

Fair and transparent charges

We’ve tried to keep things clear and simple. There are 3 charges associated with our Stocks & Shares ISA. Here's how they work.

Our charge

We charge an annual fee for managing your investments that works tier by tier. 

So the charge for the first £50,000 is 0.40%, the next £200,000 is 0.35%, and so on. We calculate the cost daily and take payment monthly from your cash account 1 where money’s held before it's invested.  

Invested value First £50,000 Next £200,000 Next £250,000 Amount above £500,000
Annual charge 0.40% 0.35% 0.25% 0%

We take a look at all of the accounts you have with us – including our Investment Account and Aviva Stocks & Shares ISA – when calculating your charge. That way, the greater the value of your investments, the lower the percentage you’ll pay, giving you greater value.
