How can I withdraw from my Stocks & Shares ISA or GIA?
You can withdraw from an ISA or GIA free of charge, any time, providing the funds you’re withdrawing are fully settled (i.e. pending deposits or investments can’t be withdrawn). It’s worth noting that our investment products are designed to help you save and invest for the longer term (minimum of 5 years).
To withdraw, you’ll first need to sell down your investments, then, once these sales are complete, withdraw the proceeds from your Available Cash.
- If you’re investing in one of our Starting Options, you can sell down your investments in Settings > Withdraw.
- If you’ve customised your investment allocation, or are investing in our range of ETFs or US stocks, you’ll need to choose which investments to sell. This can be done in Accounts > ISA/GIA > Tap on your individual investment(s) > Sell.
Sales are typically complete within 3-5 working days, and you’ll receive a confirmation email to let you know when each sale has completed.
Please note that when selling investments you may receive back a little more or less than you have chosen to withdraw. This is because prices change daily and it will take one working day to process the sale of your funds.
Once your sale(s) have completed, the proceeds will be sent to your Available Cash, and you can withdraw this to your linked bank account in Settings > Withdraw. Withdrawals from Available Cash are paid out the next available working day 💸
If you have a Junior ISA, please note that money can only be withdrawn from a JISA by the child once they reach the age of 18. For more information please visit the Junior ISA FAQ section, or contact our Support team via the in-app chat, or by emailing email@example.com.
