Lifetime ISA charges

There are always some underlying charges when investing in a stocks and shares Lifetime ISA, regardless of your chosen provider. We like to keep things simple and straightforward, which is why our fees for managing your Lifetime ISA investment have been kept to a minimum:

  • 1% Annual Management Charge
  • Up to 0.3% Investment Expenses Charge
  • How our Lifetime ISA charges work

    The Annual Management Charge simply covers the cost of managing your investment each year. The charge is calculated daily and applied to the fund as a whole, so it’s never deducted directly from your original investment. Meanwhile, the Investment Expenses Charge covers any portfolio transaction costs incurred by trying to maximise the return on your investment.

    Our Key Information Documents for the OneFamily Global Equity Fund and Global Mixed Investment Fund provide an indication of different possible scenarios, and how this may affect your investment. The total costs take into account one-off, ongoing and incidental costs.

    Do these charges ever change?

    Sometimes, these charges may change. This could be to reflect an increase in the costs of running the fund, or in providing account services to you. We will always contact you ahead of time, in writing, to keep you informed of these changes. This forms part of our agreement, set out to protect your money and interests at all times.

    Lifetime ISA Minimum Deposit

    We believe that saving can always start small. That’s why all we require to open your account is a minimum £25 direct debit, or £250 lump sum.

    Withdrawing Early

    We’d always recommend that you keep your money invested for at least five years or more. Money invested over five years or more can give investors the potential to see a better return. This is because you will have longer to ride out the fluctuations in the stock market. Shorter term investments subject to fluctuations in the market, could see losses.

    It’s also worth keeping in mind that with a Lifetime ISA, if you withdraw the money before you’re 60 – and it’s not for the purchase of a first home up to £450,000, or a terminal illness – you will be subject to a 25% government withdrawal charge.

    The value of stocks and shares can fall as well as rise, so you could get back less than was paid in. If you're not sure a stocks and shares Lifetime ISA is right for you, please contact an independent financial adviser.
