Making investing for your future easy

We help make investing easy and affordable, so you can save whilst focusing on other things you would like to achieve. Your investment will be looked after by the experts at Schroders who make the investment decisions on your behalf with a risk-controlled sustainable approach. No more than 60% will be invested in shares – reducing the effects of market fluctuations but giving the opportunity for growth.

Start saving tax-efficiently from as little as £20 and up to £20,000 each tax year, which up to £4,000 can be saved in the Lifetime ISA element.

By saving with us, you will join a mutual organisation whose Purpose is to enrich family and community well-being. We look after our members by helping them save for the future, protect their families, as well as by actively giving back and making a difference in the communities they live in.

Our Stocks and Shares ISA element

A Stocks and Shares ISA is a tax-efficient savings account which allows you to save up to £20,000 this tax year. By investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA there is potential for growth which doesn’t count to your overall tax allowance.

If you are investing for the medium to long-term, our ISA may be more suitable for you, by offering more potential for growth rather than saving in a bank or building society account where inflation could eat away at the interest made. 

With savings starting from as little as £20, the Stocks and Shares ISA element could be the best way for you to meet your savings goal; whether this is saving for the future, a rainy day or something more exciting, our Stocks and Shares ISA could be a great way for you to build up a lump sum.

Although we recommend that you invest for the medium to long-term, you have the flexibility to withdraw money whenever you need it.

Foresters Lifetime ISA 

Our Lifetime ISA element

A Lifetime ISA is available to anyone aged between 18 and 39, and was introduced by the Government to help first-time buyers get on the property ladder and/or to build additional savings for later on in life.

The Government offers a 25% bonus added to all amounts invested into the Lifetime element, up to the maximum £4,000 per year, meaning the Government will contribute up to £1,000 each year.

As the Lifetime ISA limit applies to each individual, you and a partner (if eligible) can have a separate Lifetime ISA and combine your savings to purchase a first home together in the UK worth up to £450,000.

If you are saving for later on in life, you can contribute up until age 50, and the Government will continue to contribute up to this age as well. The savings can be withdrawn tax-free any time after your 60th birthday.

A Lifetime ISA must be held for at least 12 months before using it towards the purchase of a first home. By saving into a Lifetime ISA instead of a workplace pension, you could lose the benefit of employer contributions and the value could affect any entitlement to means tested benefits. If you withdraw money before age 60, other than to purchase your first home, you will pay a government withdrawal charge of 25% on the withdrawal amount, and you may get back less than you paid in. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may be subject to change. As with all stock market investments the value of your ISA can fall as well as rise.
