ISAs

An Individual Savings Account (ISA) is a tax-efficient investment vehicle in which you can hold a range of investments, including shares in funds and cash.

How do ISAs work?

An ISA shelters your investments from personal income tax and capital gains tax.

Please note that any losses made in an ISA cannot be used to offset gains elsewhere. You can subscribe to an ISA if you are:

  • Aged 18 or over (16 or over for a cash ISA)
  • Resident and ordinarily resident in the UK for tax purposes

There are four main types of ISAs; investing in either stocks and shares ISA, cash ISA, Innovative Finance ISA or a Lifetime ISA

  • You can invest up to £20,000 in your ISA during the 2021/2022 tax year
  • You can transfer money held in an ISA from stocks and shares into cash and vice versa, without affecting your annual allowance
  • You can choose how to split your tax-efficient savings yourself. For example, you can save the full amount in stocks and shares or the full amount in cash – or you can invest in a combination of the two depending on your individual investment needs

The value and income from the fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.

The tax rules for ISAs may change in the future, and their tax advantages depend on your individual circumstances.

Available share types

Most funds offer the choice of two share types - income or accumulation.

Income shares entitle the holder to be paid the income attributed to those shares on the payment date. This is usually paid twice a year but can be paid annually, quarterly or monthly depending on the fund.

Accumulation shares don’t pay income. Instead, they automatically reinvest any income accruing to the fund and this is reflected in the share price. If a fund only offers Income shares, any net income can be reinvested to buy more shares.

If you currently reinvest your income to purchase further shares of the same fund, you can continue to do so. However please note that where income from underlying investments is saved up within the fund throughout the accounting period and reinvested to buy more shares on the reinvestment date, the income is not exposed to any market movements (up or down), unlike accumulation shares which reinvest income automatically once received.

Charges

Entry and exit charges do not apply to investments in M&G funds Sterling Class shares. However, please note that an ongoing charge will apply. The ongoing charge is made up of the Annual Charge which may be discounted depending on the size of the fund, and extraordinary expenses. For property funds, the ongoing charge does not take into account the property operating expenses, also known as PER. For information on all our charges, please refer to our Fund Charges page.

Most funds offer the choice of two share types – Income or Accumulation. Only income shares are available for the majority of funds offered within The M&G ISA.

Additional Permitted Subscription (APS) ISA

An APS ISA allowance is an additional allowance which you are granted on the death of your spouse or civil partner. You can either use your allowance by transferring the cash to us so you can buy M&G funds or, where you have inherited the deceased's assets, instruct an in-specie transfer. Further information can be found in our APS section.
