Investing made affordable

A Stocks and Shares ISA is a tax-efficient, long-term savings account available to UK residents aged 18 and over. You may save up to £20,000 this tax year either into a Stocks and Shares ISA or a combination of different types of ISAs, including a Stocks and Shares ISA.

A Stocks and Shares ISA with Foresters Financial is simple and affordable, where you can start saving from as little as £20 into a professionally managed fund. Our fund managers Schroders take investing seriously and will make the investment decisions for you, including putting sustainability at the forefront.

Our ISA is also the only ISA on the market which allows you to open a Stocks and Shares ISA and Lifetime ISA (if eligible) under one Plan. Find out more about our Lifetime ISA >

Key Information Document

Terms and Conditions



Our ISA is the only ISA on the market which gives you flexibility of combining a Stocks and Shares ISA and Lifetime ISA under one Plan. Therefore if eligible and you would like to save for a first home or later on in life, you can open the Lifetime ISA element as part of your Foresters ISA Plan too. Your overall ISA allowance is £20,000, of which no more than £4,000 can be invested in the Lifetime ISA element. This means you can save for a rainy day or something exciting in your Stocks and Shares ISA element, while also saving for a first home and/or later on in life in the Lifetime ISA element.

Flexible business to suit you

We offer a range of flexible ways for you to do business with us and contribute to your ISA, including online, over the phone, face-to-face or by video appointment. The choice is yours.

You can view your ISA online by simply activating your MyPlans account. With MyPlans you can make payments online, view your Plan value, see the fund performance, investment information, reduce paper and more. To activate your account, all you need is your Plan number and details at the ready.

We are also proud to offer a personal financial planning service either through face-to-face or video appointments, where one of our Financial Advisers can discuss your options at your convenience. As they are paid directly there is no charge for any advice given.

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 make an encashment before age 60, other than to purchase your first home, you will pay a government penalty of 25% on the encashment 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.
