Save for your future in a Shariah compliant ISA

Our ISA gives you the option to open a Shariah Stocks and Shares ISA, and/or a Shariah Lifetime ISA, while meeting your financial goals with your beliefs. Investing carries risk.

What is a Foresters Shariah ISA?

Two Shariah compliant ISAs in one

The Foresters Shariah ISA is the only ISA on the market where you can have a Stocks and Shares ISA and/or a Lifetime ISA in one Plan. You need to be 18 or over and a UK resident to open and be under 40 for the Shariah Lifetime ISA.

Investing in what you believe in

The Shariah 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.

Save up to £20,000 each year

Make monthly and/or single contributions from as little as £20, giving you flexibility to save as and when you can. The ISA limit is £20,000 and you can save up to £4,000 of this in the Shariah Lifetime ISA.

Become a Foresters member

When you open a Shariah ISA with us you become a member, and will have access to a range of exclusive benefits – at no cost to you. Such as volunteer grants, member discounts and a well-being app – just to name a few! Take a look at the member benefits >

Member benefits are not regulated by the Prudential Regulation Authority or the Financial Conduct Authority and may change in the future.

Shariah Lifetime ISA 

Want to save towards a first home or later on in life? Our Shariah Lifetime ISA is available to anyone aged between 18 and 39. You can save up to £4,000 each year, with a Government bonus of 25% added to your contributions (up to an extra £1,000 each year). 

The Shariah Lifetime ISA can be used to save towards your first home in the UK up to £450,000, and/or to save up to age 50 with access after age 60.

Is a Shariah Lifetime ISA right for me? 

Want to save towards your first home and/or for age 60 
✓ Want an added 25% government bonus  
✓ Looking for low minimum contributions 
One, simple annual management charge 
Invests under Islamic guidance 
✓ UK resident, aged 18-39 

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. 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 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.
