What’s a GIA?

It’s your straightforward investment account

There’s no upper limit on how much you can pay in, and you can withdraw your money at any time.

A GIA doesn’t have any tax benefits, like ISAs and pensions do, so your investments would be subject to tax. Whether you pay tax, and how much, will depend on your personal tax circumstances.

If you’ve not used up your ISA allowance this tax, you may want to look instead at the Dodl investment ISA.

    Graph provided for illustration purposes only. Data source: AJ Bell. Returns are based on £1,000 invested or saved at the start of 2012 and held there for ten years. Investment returns include the Dodl account charge at minimum £1 per month and are based on the AJ Bell balanced fund past performance where available (2018-2022) and its underlying asset allocation in all previous years to simulate its performance. Simulated performance (pre-2018) has been calculated using the current asset allocation which may have been different in the past and does not include fund charges. Savings returns are based on an assumed average figure of 1% interest year on year. 

    While investing with Dodl is…a doddle, it carries risk. The value of your investments can go down as well as up and you could end up with less than you put in.

    The charges

    Investing needn’t be scary or expensive. That’s why you’ll only pay one simple charge for your Dodl GIA.

    How much?

    0.15% of the value of your investments per year (min £1 per month)

    How will I pay it?

    It’s collected from the available cash in your GIA once a month, so it’s spread over the whole year.

    Anything else?

    It’s free to buy and sell investments with Dodl but investments do have their own charges (not payable to Dodl).

    Important to know

    Always remember, the value of investments can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you originally invested. Dodl doesn’t offer any advice so if you’re not sure about the risks involved with investing, you should speak to a financial adviser about this. Rules around ISAs, pensions and tax apply. How you're taxed will depend on your circumstances, and tax rules can change.
