A word about the team at Healthy Investment
Like most organisations, and in accordance with government advice, we have made specific provision to safeguard those working at the Society during the current Coronavirus outbreak. The majority of our team are now working from home, there are no face to face business meetings and the office is closed to visitors.
However this doesn’t mean that we are closed for business.
We aim and expect to maintain our normal service standards during this period but would appreciate members making contact where possible by email. Please use firstname.lastname@example.org to contact us.
Our phone lines are open but with a limited number of people manning them it may take longer than usual to get through. Your help would be really appreciated.
We might be working from home but we are definitely still open for business.
New tax year, new opportunities
As a mutual Friendly Society we are owned by our members and have a proud history of providing savings and investment plans for over 185 years. Our policy of ethical investing means that we do not invest in the tobacco, armaments or alcohol industries and gambling and adult entertainment organisations.
All of our savings and investment plans are designed for people looking for an investment
that aims to outperform returns from bank and building society cash deposits, cash ISAs for example, over the medium to long term, although the features and benefits of an investment and a deposit account are different.
Your money is invested in a single fund, managed by professional fund managers, containing stocks and shares, government and corporate bonds, commercial property and some cash deposits.
The start of the new tax year on April 6th brings with it new opportunities and choices. A further annual investment of £20,000 can be made into ISAs and the Junior ISA scheme received a boost in the Chancellor’s latest budget when it was announced that the annual limit would rise to £9,000 from 6 April 2020. Our Junior ISA provides an excellent investment for parents and grandparents to give children a good start in life.
As with our Ethical ISA we welcome transfers in of Junior ISAs from elsewhere of any amount.
Existing Child Trust Funds can also be transferred to this Junior ISA.
