Santander UK announces the launch of its new offer of up to £100 cashback on investments made into a Santander Stocks and Shares ISA between now and 16 June 2017. All new and existing customers can benefit from cashback of 0.5% (up to a maximum of £1001) on the total amount invested in a Santander Stocks and Shares ISA during the offer period.
For customers making their own investment decisions, they can invest into a Stocks and Shares ISA by applying online via our secure, efficient, straightforward platform – the Santander Investment Hub. The online service provides customers with a wide range of investment fund options from Santander Asset Management funds as well as around 1,300 funds from some of the world’s other leading fund managers to meet different needs as customers plan for the future.
With just £20 per month by Direct Debit, or a £100 lump sum, customers can access the investment platform via Santander.co.uk, which gives them a unique advantage of being able to view all of their holdings in one place – everything from their mortgage, their savings, their insurance and their current account. Customers also have the added benefit of consolidating their investments held with other providers onto the Investment Hub. This enables them to have a complete overview of their finances.
Alternatively, investments can be made through our Santander Financial Planning Service, with face-to-face advice from one of our Financial Planning Managers or Private Bankers.
Alan Mathewson, Managing Director, Wealth Management & Private Banking said: “In this low interest rate environment we want to make investing more accessible for our customers. For those taking a medium to long-term investment view, now is the time to start making use of their tax free allowance alongside other savings options that are available to them. Customers who are considering a Santander Stocks and Shares ISA for some of their savings pot, can benefit from our new competitive cashback aimed at helping them prosper and achieve their investment goals.”
The value of investments and any income from them can go down as well as up, and you may get back less than the full amount you invest. Stocks and Shares ISAs have their own eligibility criteria and subscription minimums and limits. Santander’s Financial Planning Service also has eligibility criteria.
