Important information - investment value can go up or down and you could get back less than you invest. If you're in any doubt about the suitability of a Stocks & Shares ISA, you should seek independent financial advice. The tax treatment of this product depends on your individual circumstances and may change in future. If you are uncertain about the tax treatment of the product you should contact HMRC or seek independent tax advice.

You have been invited to join an ii Family plan, meaning you can enjoy our award-winning platform free of charge.

Your free access includes our ISA, a general Trading Account, and access to our extensive range of UK and international investments. 

With our regular investing service, there are no investing fees. Or if you want to buy and sell investments, you’ll just pay our normal investing fees (usually £7.99 per trade).

If you'd like some guidance, you will also have exclusive access to an online beginners’ course, put together by our experts.

Here's what you need to do:


Open an ii ISA or Trading Account as normal. Don't worry about any reference to monthly fees - these will be removed once you are added to the Family plan.


Let your family member know once you've signed up, so that they can add you to the plan. This will ensure you are not charged a monthly fee.


You’ll then receive an email to confirm your accounts are linked.
