UnaVida | Innovative Finance ISA’s

Innovative Finance ISA’s

Innovative Finance ISAs are a new style of ISA. It is similar to a Stocks and Share ISA except that you can include Peer to Peer loans within it.

The first problem is that the FCA has yet to formally approve any of the Peer to Peer firms, so currently you can do nothing. Despite the lack of regulatory approval, many Peer to peer firms continue to advertise the Innovative finance ISA’s.

Another problem is that if you hold existing P2P loans, then you would have to sell them and buy again inside an ISA (should regulatory approval be given).

Although of course it is possible to invest in specialised investment trusts that hold P2P investments.

Unless you are fairly committed to P2P investing, we would advise caution as P2P loans are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, that means that if things go wrong you could lose money.

A pension is a long-term investment that typically cannot be accessed until age 55 (57 from April 2028). The level of pension benefits offered could change depending on the value of your investments (and any income they may generate).

The interest rates in effect at the time you begin receiving benefits may also have an impact on your pension income. The tax consequences of pension withdrawals will depend on your unique situation. In later Finance Acts, tax rates, tax bases, and tax relief may change.

The opinions expressed by Ray Best are meant to inform and educate. Before making any investment decisions always take advice that is pertinent to your investment personality and financial situation.

You are aware that past performance will not necessarily be repeated in the future, but you should be aware that persistent poor performance invariably will.

The value of an investment and the income from it could go down as well as up.

The return at the end of the investment period is not guaranteed and you may get back less than you originally invested.
