Sheffield Mutual is a member-owned mutual friendly society that provides a range of life insurance, tax exempt, savings and investment plans. It was founded in 1892.
Sheffield Mutual’s Investment ISA is a convenient and flexible way to save or invest tax-free, offering the potential for tax-free investment growth through annual and final bonuses; the 2020/21 interim bonus rate is 3.50%. You can invest from just £30 per month or a £300 lump sum, up to a maximum allocation of up to £20,000 in the current tax year.
With this account you can access your money if you need to, but it will be subject to a £250 minimum withdrawal fee. You can transfer an existing ISA from another provider. The annual management charge for this account is 1.50% p.a. with no initial or hidden charges.
Choose from a selection of investment funds – this is great if you are looking for higher rewards than from a normal savings account and if you are prepared to accept a certain level of investment risk in adverse market conditions.
Investment Junior ISA
Similar to the above Investment ISA, this junior version is a tax-free investment for children under the age of 18, with returns free from Capital Gains Tax and dividends sheltered from higher rate tax.
It allows parents or guardians with parental responsibility to plan for a child’s future; they maintain control of the Junior ISA until the child reaches 18, but as soon as a subscription has been made, the money becomes the child’s.
The maximum allocation into this ISA is £9,000 with many investment opportunities available. Top-ups can be made by anyone at any time; the minimum saving rate is just £10 per month.
Sheffield Mutual provides a range of life insurance, tax exempt, savings and investment plans.
