Open a Triodos IFISA or transfer an existing ISA
Open a new IFISA or transfer an existing Cash ISA, Stocks and Shares ISA, or IFISA to us.
Invest in one of our IFISA-eligible offers
Once you’ve opened your Triodos IFISA you can invest straightaway in any of our eligible investments, or you can deposit cash and invest at a later date. The annual ISA allowance is £20,000.
Receive tax-free returns
Within an ISA there’s no tax to pay on any income. As with all ISAs, there are eligibility requirements for the IFISA. ISA eligibility does not reduce the risks associated with the investment nor guarantee returns. It is possible to lose all of the money invested.
If you're not ready to invest in any of our IFISA-eligible offers, you can deposit your cash into your account to be used for future investment. However, you will not earn interest on money held as cash in an IFISA account.Open an IFISA Complete profile to create an IFISA Create an IFISA Account Transfer an existing IFISA
"I opened a Triodos IFISA so that my money could work against climate change, supporting renewables and clean energy.
I am happy to have traded higher interest rates for ethical investments, knowing that my money is now making a positive impact on the future of the planet and also has the potential to make a financial return."

Which investments available on the platform will be ISA eligible?
Investments offered on this platform are not readily
realisable, which means that they may be difficult to sell and you may not get
back the full amount invested. Investments are not covered by the Financial
Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and your capital is at risk and returns are
not guaranteed. Repayment of capital and interest or payment of dividends will
be dependent on the success of the organisation's business model and past performance isn’t a
reliable indicator of future performance. You should
always read the offer document in full before deciding whether or not to invest as it
will cover risks specific to an individual investment. You can read more about
the general risks associated with making these types of investments. If
you are unsure if any of these investments are right for you, you should
contact an Independent Financial Adviser.
