How do I buy a fund?

Funds are easy to buy online. Once you have selected a fund, and you're in the Buy screen, you see the Latest buy price. For OEICs and unit trusts this price is a real-time bid price from the latest valuation.

Just set the amount you'd like to invest; this figure can be anything up to the figure shown under 'Cash available to invest', which may sometimes be a little less than the total cash in that account because some could be ring-fenced for fees, charges, another pending deal, or a regular savings plan. Also note that the amount you enter does not have to be a whole multiple of the Buy price.

Hit 'Buy' and that's it. We'll confirm that your transaction has been successful, and you'll see the fund in your Account summary as soon as the deal has completed, which usually happens within one working day.
