What is an Innovative Finance ISA?

The Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA) allows you to invest in Crowd Bonds while keeping the tax advantages of traditional ISAs - an attractive prospect in the current low interest rate environment, coupled with rising inflation.

With the annual ISA allowance now at £20,000, many investors are looking for ways to diversify their portfolio, and with Crowd Bonds offering on average 6.08% p.a.* this really sets the IFISA apart for savers and investors happy to take more risk.

The Innovative Finance ISA is not the same as a cash ISA, your capital is at risk and is not covered by the Financial Service Compensation deposit scheme. ISA tax advantages are subject to change and personal circumstances. Find out more.
