ISA

ISAs are one of the most popular and tax-efficient ways to save and invest for the future. The ISA allowance for the 2019/20 tax year is £20,000, with full flexibility in the use of cash and investments within the overall annual limit.

A well-diversified and balanced portfolio creates the appropriate strategy for income or capital growth. Through regular reviews, the mix can be adjusted to reflect changing needs and markets.

The St. James's Place Junior ISA can help give youngsters a head start and an introduction to the importance of saving. It provides a flexible and tax-efficient way to build a capital sum to help secure the financial futures of your children.

Unit Trusts

Unit Trusts are a useful investment.  They offer the opportunity to benefit from a stock market investment without further liability to Income or Capital Gains Tax.

They are often seen as a key component of a stocks and shares ISA and offer a range of other benefits to investors including a range of solutions for medium to long term capital growth and income and the flexibility to use their annual Capital Gains Tax allowance.

Furthermore, when used in conjunction with a Trust*, they also offer an alternative solution for investments on behalf of children.

Offshore Investments

Offshore investments are often an attractive option for parents wishing to provide capital to a minor, or those expecting their marginal rate of tax to fall. They benefit investors entitled to an age-related allowance, or expatriates investing while non-resident.

St. James's Place offers international investment solutions for investors wanting to invest regularly or as a one-off lump sum into a range of asset classes and currencies.

These investments are set up to:

  • aim to maximise growth prospects
  • spread risk
  • offer a range of carefully selected and monitored Investment Managers
  • give you the option of a regular and predictable 'income'
  • allow you to switch between funds easily
  • help to reduce your personal liability to Income and Capital Gains Tax.

The value of investments may fall as well as rise purely on account of exchange rate fluctuations.

Investing for Income

Over the last decade, the value of money held on deposit has been impacted by ongoing low interest rates and inflation; as a consequence, long-term investing for income has assumed greater importance.

St. James's Place offers a range of income-generating investment solutions across a range of asset classes, giving you the opportunity to build a diversified, personally-tailored portfolio.

Alternative sources of income include:

  • fixed interest - corporate bonds and gilts offer the potential for increased income in times of low interest rates
  • equities - whilst in the short-term equities can be volatile, history shows that they have outperformed all other asset classes over the longer term and offer the potential for capital growth and rising income 1
  • commercial property - whilst the commercial property market offers an opportunity to achieve capital growth over the longer term, the primary return for investors is rental income. By securing long leases with financially-secure tenants, commercial property could potentially offer attractive and sustainable income levels.

Diversification and expert management is key to long-term success in challenging markets.

The St. James's Place approach gives you access to investment expertise and a range of different investment firms, with the peace of mind of knowing that your money is being well looked after.

For further information on strategies to cope with lower interest rates and alternative solutions to help achieve your income or capital growth objectives, read our brochure.

The value of an investment with St. James's Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds selected and may fall as well as rise. You may get back less than the amount invested.

Equities do not provide the security of capital associated with a deposit account with a bank or building society.

Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

The value of property is a matter of the valuer's opinion and not fact.
