Transfer your ISA
You can transfer your existing ISA to i-stock. If you decide this is appropriate, upon your instruction, i-stock will arrange this for you and administer the transfer on your behalf. This will allow you to access the benefits of our 0% account fee for your wider savings pot.
This website is for information purposes only. i-stock does not provide financial advice and an account can only be opened via the i-stock app. The ISA transfer process is only available within the app, where you can find our ISA transfer form.
Once the form is completed, i-stock will work with your current ISA manager to complete the transfer and notify you when this is complete.

You will need to agree to our terms and conditions before you invest, which states you are not exceeding your annual ISA allowance of £20,000.
Are there any penalties when accessing my money?
i-stock will never charge you any fees or issue any penalties for withdrawing your money. Depending on your chosen investment fund, there may be additional charges such as entry charges or exit charges. For more information about charges please refer to the "Charges" section of the Key Investor Information Document (KIID) for your chosen investment fund, or the "Charges and Expenses" section of the Supplement for your chosen investment fund. The KIID and Supplement for each of the available investment funds on i-stock can be found on our website, under the "Investment Fund Options" section.
Can I monitor my investment?
You can monitor your investment within the i-stock app. The performance of your investment is tracked within your valuation homepage, and you will also be sent a performance report summary every 3 months.
Can I top up every month?
Yes, you can do this on a month by month basis or set up an automatic monthly direct debit. This offers a convenient way to increase your overall monthly savings.
Can I withdraw at any time?
Yes, you are able to instruct withdrawals from your investment at any time. It may take a few days for your withdrawal to settle, but the cash out process can begin whenever you choose. The i-stock ISA is not flexible, meaning if you choose to make a withdrawal from your ISA, you will not be able to replace these funds within the current year's ISA subscription limit. For example, your annual allowance is £20,000 and you put £10,000 in during the 2019 to 2020 tax year. You then take out £6,000, leaving you with £4,000. The amount you can now put in during the same tax year is £10,000, which will leave you with a total of £14,000 (you cannot re-subscribe the £6,000 that you withdrew).
Where does my money go when I make a deposit?
If you make a deposit with i-stock, your money will be held in a Barclays client account under the name of Gaudi Regulated Services Limited (Gaudi is the product provider for the i-stock ISA. Gaudi are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority with FCA number 488015). Gaudi have responsibility for the administration of the client account and have appointed Quai Administration Services Limited to manage the day to day running of the client money account (Quai are the outsourced administrator for the Barclays client account).
The money will be used to purchase units in the investment fund of your choosing. These units are held and administered by a company called Winterflood Securities Limited (Winterflood are the custodian who hold the units on your behalf. Winterflood are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority with FCA number 141455). Once you have chosen your investment fund, units in that fund will be purchased by Winterflood, and the money will be held by the depositary for your chosen investment fund. When you make a withdrawal from i-stock, Winterflood will sell the units back to the fund in exchange for their current value. The proceeds will then be sent back to the Barclays client account before being returned to your designated bank account.
