If you are a U.K. resident for tax purposes and at least age 18, you can open a Stock 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. You can deposit different currencies but all currencies will be automatically converted to GBP, as mandated by HMRC ISA rules.
Your eligible assets are protected from loss under the US Securities Investor Protection Corporation at an amount of up to USD 500,000 (subject to a cash sub-limit of USD 250,000). As with all securities firms, this coverage protects against the failure of a broker-dealer, not against the loss of market value of securities.
