The value of investments can go down as well as up so you may not get back the amount you invest. Please remember, the value of tax savings and the eligibility to invest in an ISA depends on personal circumstances and all tax rules may change in the future. Fidelity Personal Investing does not give advice. If you are unsure of the suitability of an investment you should speak to a financial adviser.
Please note if you have already paid into a Stocks & Shares ISA since 6 April 2016, you will not be able to open another Stocks & Shares ISA before 6 April 2017. You may however make additional payments – up to the £15,240 ISA subscription limit - into your existing account(s).
You can open an ISA if you are over 18 years old and a UK resident for tax purposes. Crown employees are also eligible. You can get started with a minimum of £50 per month or £1,000 lump sum.
