  • Account Protection: In the unlikely event that IBUK became insolvent, an administrator would be appointed to return your money/assets to you. If there is any shortfall, eligible claims will be covered by the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme (“FSCS”). The FSCS is an independent body set up by the UK Government to pay compensation if a UK firm, such as IBUK, is in default and cannot meet any valid claims against it.  FSCS claims are limited to £85,000 per client.  Please note, the FSCS applies to designated investments and may not cover all investments or transactions (and in particular these protections don’t apply to investment losses). For more information on the FSCS see:

Stocks and Shares (adult) ISA

If you are a U.K. resident for tax purposes and at least age 18, you can open a Stocks and Shares Individual Savings Account (ISA). ISAs offer a tax-efficient opportunity to save up to £20,000 in each tax year (April 6 to April 5). By HMRC rules (subject to change), income earned is tax-free, as are any gains when you sell your investments.

There is no minimum deposit needed to open an ISA account although you must fund your account in GBP, as mandated by HMRC ISA rules.

Stocks and Shares (junior) JISA

Our Junior ISAs function similarly to our Stocks and Shares ISA, but is intended for those under age 18. The maximum investment for a Junior ISA in the tax year is £9,000. If you are the parent or guardian of a junior (under the age of 18 years of age), you can open a Junior ISA for them and then anyone can contribute to the JISA. JISA contributions are tax-free and can hold a broad range of financial products.
