What are ISA Stocks & Shares?
Individual Savings Accounts (ISA) Stocks and Shares is an investment account that is tax efficient and allows you to invest your money into a wide range of investments including Open-ended investment companies, Investment trusts, unit trusts, corporate and government bonds. It also gives you an option to buy shares of individual companies and put them in your Individual Savings Account.




So, The ISA allows you to invest your money to a particular amount without any need to pay taxes on the profits and interests you receive.

One should only invest in such type of investment s if he is prepared to take risk of the investments going down or up.

What all can you hold in your Stocks and shares ISA?

You can hold a number of different investments like individual shares, investment trusts, unit trusts, open-ended investment companies, government, and corporate bonds, and exchange-traded funds.

Bonds are the source by which corporate and government companies raise money and are fixed term IOUs. When you invest in IOUs, the issuer will pay you some interest for the fixed term.

While working on when and where to invest, you can hold cash in your ISA Stocks & Shares account.

For whom it can be suitable?

It is a long-term investment, so if you may need your money in a couple of years, the stocks and shares ISA is not suitable for you. It is generally for those who are willing to invest their money in the market for at least five years. This is because; the market is volatile and may take a dip anytime so for your investment to recover from the loss and start gaining, it needs time.

Even while investing for long-term, you need to be ready to take some risk as there is a chance that you may get a lesser amount of your money back than what you put in.

What are other types of ISA?

Apart from ISA Stocks & Shares, there is cash ISA that allows only holding the cash. Innovative finance cash only allows you to investing lending of peer-to-peer.

Lifetime ISA is designed especially for the first time buyers to help them save a deposit or save for retirement or even both. Help to buy ISA are to help those who want to save to buy a property. While junior ISA lets you save for your child’s future.

How much can be invested in stocks and shares ISA?

You can invest at maximum £20,000 in a tax year. This allowance can be further split into different types of ISAs. But you are only allowed to contribute to each type of ISA once in each financial year.

To start with, you do not need to have a big amount right away. A number of ISAs can be opened with a contribution of £25 per month. Regular saving can also ease out the volatility of the market as you get an option to buy more shares when the prices go down and lesser when it rises.

Investing in ISA shares and stocks is a good method for saving and earning some extra bucks to enjoy a better lifestyle without worrying of taxes. You can invest to save for the future after retirement or for buying a property or anything.
