Who is Invest+ for?

Everyone. Invest+ takes away the need to research markets, understand asset types, etc. We’re here to simplify investing.

We have some eligibility criteria below. It includes making sure an investment is affordable for you, but we’re here to make investing easier to access.

 

Why invest?

Investing can help you grow your money more effectively than cash savings but it’s not a short-term strategy. Think for the longer term, 5+ years.

Investing through Invest+ saves you the stress and effort of building and managing your own investments. Our experts manage the fund to spread risk and seek opportunities to help grow your money. All based on the amount of risk you have told us you’re willing to take.

The value of investments, and income from them, can fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you invest. We recommend holding your investment for at least five years to increase your investment’s potential and balance market movements over time.

How it works...

Personal recommendation

Get a tailored report with a recommendation based on what you’re looking for. This is yours to keep – you can then decide whether you’d like to go ahead and invest. You can invest a minimum lump sum of £1,500 or £100 a month.

Take your time

Tell us about your goals, risk appetite and financial situation. We’ll get started by pre-filling your Bank of Scotland account details. If something crops up, we’ll remember where you got to so you can finish up later.

Feel confident

You’ll get a personal investment report with realistic recommendations based on only what you can afford. Your investments will be looked after by experts who know all about helping people grow their money.

Am I eligible?

To apply for Invest+, you’ll need to be:

An existing Internet Banking customer

At least 18 years old

Currently living in the UK

Not a US citizen

Please remember that the value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise, and you may get back less than you invest. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future.
