If you want to shift your portfolio investments from a Personal Account to an ISA, please submit a request via our website contact form and our Support team will be happy to help you do this.
Sometimes called a “bed and ISA”, your existing portfolio will need to be sold and then bought back through the ISA.
When your portfolio is sold, the proceeds will be available for reinvestment the next day.
Please note that ETF prices may move in the period you are out of the market. By selling and buying back, you will also be subject to the cost of the market spread. These factors may mean your cash buys back fewer shares than you held previously (equally, if prices fall while you are out of the market, you may be able to buy back more shares than you held previously).
