the mercantile circle managed GIA


General Investment Account (or GIA) is a simple way to hold investments outside of tax wrappers, such as pensions or ISAs. They do not offer the same tax benefits, but have few limitations

Unlike ISA’s and SIPPs, there is no limit on how much you can invest in a GIA and you’ll benefit from being able to withdraw money as and when you want. This type of account will appeal to savers looking for greater flexibility, alongside those who have used up their annual ISA allowance, or simply don’t want to lock their money away in a pension until the age of 55.

The fully-managed GIA we arrange for our clients can be held individually, jointly, in trust or as a corporate. To identify your suitability for this type of savings account, we’ll introduce you to someone on our panel of Independent Financial Advisers who will take the time to fully understand your goals and aspirations in order to recommend an investment portfolio that is suitable for you*. But it doesn’t stop there, your portfolio will constantly be monitored and rebalanced by a professional discretionary fund manager, so that you don’t have to – meaning you can sit back and let someone else do the work. Simple.
