Could your ISA be achieving 7% annual growth?
In September, the Bank of England released data showing the average Cash ISA rate has fallen to just 1.43%*. That’s a staggering 51% drop since 2011, and the lowest rate since records began. By contrast, those with Stocks and Shares ISA’s enjoyed 7.4% returns on their ISA’s during the 2014/2015 tax year**. The average Stocks and Shares ISA fund has now grown by a staggering 174% in the 16 years since the introduction of ISAs**.
You can start benefiting from these potential returns by investing new funds or transferring your existing ISA. Our experienced team of stock brokers are consistently targeting yearly returns of between 7.3% and 8.6% per year, and offer a range of ISA Funds to suit our client’s financial requirements.
