Barclays Stockbrokers has launched its 2008 ISA offering - the Investment ISA - which has been designed to cater for the differing needs, risk profiles and objectives of investors.
Barclays says the product gives investors the ability to access a number of asset classes with differing risk levels and ensure they are looking to make the most of the tax free allowance.
It says investors have the ability to trade in a wide range of investments including funds, investment notes, equities, iShares – Barclays Global Investors ETF range - and REITS within the Investment ISA.
In addition, Barclays Stockbrokers has introduced new administration charges which will see investors opening an ISA account incurring a flat administration fee which is tiered according to the amount held.
Amy Nauiokas, managing director and head of Barclays Stockbrokers, says: “It is little surprise that given recent market activity many investors are unsure as to how they should invest their ISA allowance this year.
“ISAs are an important tax-efficient addition to any investment portfolio and we believe investors should be offered a wide choice of products and detailed information on these products in order for them to make a considered decision in this area.
“Our Investment ISA gives investors complete flexibility over what they invest in, and access to a wide range of structured products, fund and sector choices to meet their varying needs, all at a low cost.
“Savvy investors should also look to other products such as SIPPs to ensure they maximise their investments and make their tax-efficient allowances work for them.”
Barclays Stockbrokers also offers a Managed ISA, with experienced portfolio managers able to create a diversified portfolio for investors, designed to achieve growth in income and capital over the medium to long term.
