What is a Foresters Shariah Lifetime ISA?

A Shariah compliant way to save for a home

A Shariah Lifetime ISA is for those ages 18-39 and a UK resident, to save in a Shariah compliant fund. You can save towards your first home and/or for after age 60, with a 25% government bonus to add to your savings.

Investing in what you believe in

The Shariah Lifetime ISA aims to grow the investment over the medium to long-term by investing in a Shariah compliant portfolio of shares from around the world. A Shariah Supervisory Board and Shariah Adviser have been appointed to ensure all investments in the fund meet Shariah Investment Guidelines. Your investment will be looked after by the experts at Schroders who make the investment decisions on your behalf.

Transfers from your Shariah Stocks and Shares ISA to your Shariah Lifetime ISA can be made, so you can make the most of the government bonus. You can also split the minimum contribution amount of £20 to a minimum of £10 in each ISA.

 Invests under Islamic guidance

With an ISA 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.

A Lifetime ISA must be held for at least 12 months before using it towards the purchase of a first home in the UK up to £450,000. 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.

The government bonus will apply to any contributions (up to £4,000) until your 50th birthday, which you can access at age 60. If you make a withdrawal from the Lifetime ISA before age 60, other than to purchase your first home, you will pay a government penalty of 25% on the withdrawal amount, and you may get back less than you paid in.
