An Individual Savings Account, or ISA, is a tax efficient* savings plan that you can wrap around an investment and any capital gains that the investment realises become protected from the taxman. Although there are various types of ISA, the Witan Wisdom ISA is a stocks and shares ISA that enables you to make regular or lump sum investments in Witan Investment Trust and/or Witan Pacific Investment Trust.
Why consider a Witan Wisdom ISA?
- Investing via the Witan Wisdom ISA is the most tax-efficient way of investing that is available via Wisdom
- The maximum ISA allowance for 2016/17 is £15,240 rising to £20,000 for the 2017/18 tax year. You can split the amount you pay into an ISA between a Cash ISA, Stocks and Shares ISA and an innovative finance ISA as you choose, as long as the overall amount does not exceed the maximum ISA allowance
- The minimum regular subscription is £100 per month/quarter
- You can choose whether to have dividends paid out or reinvested to buy more shares
- The annual management fee for the Witan Wisdom ISA is £30(+VAT) until 5th April 2017 and £30.68(+VAT) from 6th April 2017*, irrespective of how many ISAs you hold or how many of the trusts you are invested in
- The dealing charge is £15 for lump sum investments but there are no dealing charges on regular savings or dividend reinvestment (other than the government stamp duty, currently 0.5% on all equity purchases)
- Witan Wisdom offers live online dealing and valuation functionality. We also offer telephone and postal dealing
- You can transfer an existing ISA to Witan Wisdom and invest in Witan Investment Trust and/or Witan Pacific Investment Trust without losing the tax benefits
