Every business that's launching new investing products in the UK needs to think about the account types its going to offer investors. The most common account types in the UK are usually the GIAs (General Investment Account) or the ISAs (Individual Savings Account).
WealthKernel is a HMRC registered ISA Manager and Pension Administrator that can support all of the following wrappers in the UK. This means your business can offer investors the account types that they want, supporting the investment universe that you have chosen.
A Stocks and Shares ISA is an account that allows investments to grow without paying income tax, or capital gains tax on any profits made.
A General Investment Account is a simple account where investments are held outside of tax wrappers such as Pensions & ISAs.
A JISA is a tax-efficient investment account for children that can be contributed to by family and friends, but only the child can access the money once they become 18 years old.
