Should I opt for a cash ISA over a pension?


Everyone has different savings goals – some of us are at the stage in life where we’re saving with retirement firmly in mind, while others have shorter-term goals. If this is the case, an ISA might be a good way to save some of your money for the short term. However, it's best not to put all your eggs in one basket, so to speak, and most financial advisers would say that it's best to spread your money around when it comes to retirement savings. As with all investments, it’s best to seek independent financial advice if you’re unsure.

Important Information: Structured deposits offer you the potential to earn higher returns than you would with a regular savings account. Your returns are based on the performance of an index or commodity. If the investment does not perform well you may receive no income or capital growth, but you can be confident that your capital will be repaid. You have no access to your deposit during the term of the account, typically 3 to 6 years but your original capital will be repaid in full at the end of the term. In the event that the deposit taker is unable to repay your initial investment and any returns stated you may be entitled to compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) depending on your individual circumstances.
