Stocks and Shares ISA returns

Putting your money to work in a Stocks and Shares ISA makes it grow – just like everything else in the world. Your money has real potential to achieve much better returns than cash savings, and these are still free from capital gains and income tax.

With today’s interest rates, £1000 in a Stocks and Shares ISA works a lot harder than money in a Cash ISA (or savings account). Keeping your money in a Cash ISA is really just like leaving money in a savings account except the return (or ‘interest’) you make is tax-free.

If you want to keep some of your tax-free allowance as cash you can. Open both a Cash ISA and a Stocks and Shares ISA in the same tax year and just remember to stay within your overall yearly allowance of £20,000.

How does a Stocks and Shares ISA work?

Each year, UK residents enjoy a £20,000 tax-free allowance to make sure they get the most back from their hardworking investments. A Stocks and Shares ISA is one of most efficient ways grow your wealth.

To open a Moneyfarm ISA you’re first matched with one of seven good-to-go portfolios, based on what you tell us about your investment profile and financial goals.

if you’d like to use your ISA to save towards different goals then just add more portfolios. Each portfolio you add lives inside your ISA and each one can be named so you know what money’s for what, eg ‘new home’ or ‘round-the-world trip’.

Key to the figures
Moneyfarm returns net of fees since inception (01/01/2016 to 30/06/2020) vs. average peer group performance or a cash proxy over the same time period. These past performance figures are simulated. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. Asset Risk Consultants (ARC) collect the monthly returns of a collection of discretionary investment managers to create an index of the average returns for a given level of risk.

Important information

Moneyfarm data
The returns here are simulated using an assumed balance of £250,000, and the average management fee from our pricing model of 0.46% from 01/01/2016 to 31/10/2017 and 0.55% from 01/11/2017 to the 31/12/19. The returns are net of underlying fund costs and market spread. The returns are the total returns, so include all dividends. (Data Source: Bloomberg/xignite)

Peer Comparison Data
Asset Risk Consultants ARC collects the monthly returns of a collection of discretionary investment managers including large Asset managers, private banks and Wealth Managers to create an index of the average returns for a given level of risk.

ARC benchmarks are as follows:

Private Client IndexRelative Risk to World Equities
ARC Cautious PCI0 – 40%
ARC Balanced Asset PCI40 – 60%
ARC Steady Growth PCI60 – 80%
ARC Equity Risk PCI80 – 110%

Where the relative risk to World Equities means you are taking approximately that percentage of the risk global stock markets.

Moneyfarm’s Risk level 2 is compared to the ARC Cautious Private Client Index (PCI), our risk levels 3 and 4 use the ARC Balanced Asset Private Client Index (PCI), levels 5 and 6 are both compared to ARC Steady Growth Private Client Index (PCI) and our risk level 7 is matched to ARC Equity Risk Private Client Index PCI

ARC compiles indexes using the average competitor returns, including Barclays Wealth, HSBC, Investec Wealth and Investment and Blackrock, as well as many others.

P7 Portfolio
Please note that ARC does not independently verify the performance of the Model submitted by Moneyfarm. The returns shown refer to simulated past performance of our model portfolios from 01/01/2016 to 31/12/2019, this portfolio only became available to clients on 16/05/2019. Past performance is not an indicator of future results.

P1 Portfolio
ARC does not produce an index that is a suitable comparison for P1, as it does not contain any equity. We use monthly GBP Libor + 0.5%, as this is a cash proxy, which Moneyfarm believes is a fair comparison.

Simple fees for all your goals
