Liquidating Isas

Recommended Posts

I have done very nicely with my FTSE 100 tracker, and I am breaking even on a FTSE Techmark Tracker (Which was seriously down at one point - so it has been performing well of late)

I am a bit pessimistic over these investments into the future so I think it is time to sell. It would be a pity to lose the tax free status of the investment.

Is there anyway that I can still keep it tax free?

I think you would need to keep everything inside the ISA wrapper - but there might be a possibility to sell the funds and hold cash inside the ISA (albeit for a short time). Otherwise you could move some of your investments into less UK dependent areas (Japan, AsiaPac, Eastern Europe, Gold, etc)... which is exactly what I've done with mine.

I know with a cash ISA, you can switch providers quite easily. I am not sure it is that possible with investment ones, can't really find any clear information on it :blink:

Thanks.

I already have £4k in a gold ISA - looking to transfer £8k. I am not too happy about putting it all into gold - so should perhaps look into other sectors - countries.

Germany? They have had a lean spell - could possibly be turning around?

If they'd had a clear winner in the elections, yes. As it stands... I don't think they're going to get much done in the next few years.
