But don’t confuse what we offer with a cash ISA. Both our ISA and SIPP accounts are primarily designed for those who want to hold investments. However, if you want to hold cash in your ISA or SIPP because you’re uncertain of market conditions, or need time to decide what to invest in, you’ll receive interest on all cash balances of £1,000 or more.

If you only want to hold cash in your ISA, then you’ll be able to find interest rates available in cash ISAs, and you can now transfer from an investment ISA to a cash ISA.
