How it works

Consider an investor who has accumulated a large ISA pot after years of careful saving and investing. Although the ISA remains tax-efficient throughout the investor’s lifetime, it represents a potential IHT liability on death.

The below example illustrates potential savings following investment, while retaining the benefits of the ISA.
