Choose an account that’s right for you

An account is where your investments on The Big Exchange are held. Choosing an account can seem complicated but it doesn’t have to be. We offer an ISA, GIA, and a JISA which you can read more about below.


(Individual Savings Account)

A Big Exchange ISA is a tax-free way to invest up to £20,000 per year for you, people, and planet.

If you are over 18, an ISA is the most efficient way to put your savings to work as you won't have to pay any capital gains tax on profits.

(Junior Individual Savings Account)

A JISA is for your children. Open an account which they will get access to when it becomes an ISA on their 18th birthday.

Until then, you can invest up to £9,000 per year on their behalf which cannot be withdrawn early.

(General Investment Account)

If your ISA is full and you’ve reached your £20,000 limit but you want to keep investing, a GIA means you don’t have to stop.

There are no tax incentives to our GIA, but it still has access to all of the funds on The Big Exchange.

Investing is not guaranteed to make you money. Your capital is at risk. Please remember that tax treatment depends on the individual circumstances of each customer and may be subject to change in the future.
