"I am looking for an investment product that gives me a better return than my cash ISA"

Innovative Finance ISAs can compare favourably to other forms of ISA investment, this is not the same as Cash ISA investing. Capital at risk and returns are not guaranteed. MAVEN Bonds are not readily realisable and are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). You will need to choose which bonds to hold in your IFISA - returns can be earned tax free. Tax treatment depends on the individual circumstances of each investor.

What are Fixed Term Bonds?

There are number of different types of Fixed Term Bonds and its important to understand the differences. A fixed term bonds can be a Savings Bond, an Investment Bond or a Mini Bond.

Fixed Term Savings Bonds generally offer fixed rates of between 1.5% per annum and 2.0% per annum. Some can be held within a Cash ISA, so the returns are tax free.

Fixed Term Investment Bonds mainly fall into two categories, onshore and offshore. The main difference is their tax treatment. Onshore are subject to UK corporation tax, while offshore bonds are issued from outside the UK and the returns roll up gross of tax in the funds.

Fixed Term Mini Bonds are a form of debt that allows investors to invest in a company or property project and receive a fixed return over a set period of time, with the initial investment returned at the end of the fixed term.

Certain Mini Bonds such as MAVEN Bonds are IFISA elibigle and also offer tax free returns.

Fixed Term IFISA Bonds

The Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA) - introduced to the ISA family in April 2016 - is an ISA account that allows you to hold peer-to-peer (P2P) loans and Fixed Term Bonds and enjoy tax free returns.

There is a limit on the amount you can subscribe to ISAs each tax year, known as the annual ISA allowance - currently £20,000 for the tax year 2019/20. This allowance can be fully invested in an Innovative Finance ISA, or spread across the different types of ISA, including Cash ISAs, Stocks and Shares ISAs or a Lifetime ISA.

To be eligible to open an IFISA, you must be a UK resident aged 18 or over.
