Cash ISA

If you are resident in the UK and over 16 years old, you will be entitled to open a Cash ISA. The limit to the amount you can save in the current tax year is £5,760.
Cash ISAs are a safe way of investing your savings without any investment risks.
You can choose to invest a lump sum or pay in over a period of time as long as you keep within the upper limit. ISAs are flexible enough for you to withdraw your savings but do remember, that if you have already invested the full £5,760 you won't be able to pay in any more money until the new tax year.

Stocks & Shares ISA

If you are wishing to invest the full £11,520 during the year then you will need to make use of the Stocks & Shares ISA. You can either invest the full lump sum or you can split the funds between a Stocks & Shares ISA and a Cash ISA.

Stocks & Shares ISAs contain an element of risk as they are associated with the investment market but can potentially offer a greater return than a traditional savings account.

Junior ISA

Junior ISAs were introduced in 2011 as a tax-efficient way of young people saving for the future. The accounts are similar to a Cash ISA but available to anyone under the age of 18 and designed to help both children and their parents save.

The limit for a Junior ISA in the current tax year is £3,720.
