You’ve already used your tax-free allowances for the year

An investment account is a good idea if you’ve maximised your tax-free ISA and SIPP allowances for the year and you want to invest more money.

You’d like flexibility over how you manage your investments

With an investment account there’s no limit on how much you can put in or how often – and you can take money out too whenever you want.

You’re focusing on meeting your financial objectives.

If you’ve got financial goals that are some way off, like retirement or children’s education, investing for the long term gives your money the chance to work harder and get better returns.
