Virgin FTSE tracker ISA: Our customers have over £2.6 billion invested in our tracker fund

Why choose this ISA?

Our tracker fund buys shares in every one of the 600+ companies listed on the UK's FTSE All-Share Index.

It then tracks the market every step of the way, and because your savings lock on to the returns of the whole index, you will never miss out on any stock market growth.

Here are 3 reasons why it might be good for you:

Why choose this ISA?

Your money is invested in over 600 companies

Investing in every one of the 600+ businesses quoted in the FTSE All-Share Index, from big high street names to fast growing smaller firms, gives you a balanced spread of investments across the whole of British industry. That means you are spreading your risk widely.

It’s also worth recognising that as many of the companies are truly international, you effectively benefit from investment in overseas markets too.

Why choose this ISA?

You could benefit from long-term stock market growth

Because you are investing in every company in the FTSE All-Share Index, you get the benefit of the long-term potential of the whole Index rather than the movement of individual shares. As you can see from the graph, the All-Share Index can fluctuate in value and this is why you should consider investing for a minimum of 5 years.

So, for example, if you had invested £3,000 on 30 September 2009 in the FTSE All-Share Tracker, it would be worth £4,483 after charges on 30 September 2014. Here is a table showing the returns you would have got from our tracker fund in each of the last five years. Show table.

Remember, past performance is not a reliable guide to the future. The value of your investments can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invest.

Why choose this ISA?

It offers the potential for higher returns than a normal savings account, but with more risk

Our FTSE Tracker ISA offers the growth potential of the UK Stock Market, however it is higher risk than a cash ISA and our Bond and Gilt ISA.

Our Climate Change ISA offers the potential to outperform the UK Stock Market providing higher returns, however it is higher risk than a cash ISA and our other Stocks and Shares ISAs.

Illustration showing that Climate Change ISA has the highest potential for return with the highest risk, followed by FTSE Tracker ISA, then Bond and Gilt ISA, then Cash ISA

The graph above shows how our FTSE Tracker ISA compares to our other ISAs. It has potential for higher returns than our Bond and Gilt ISA and a Cash ISA, but it should be considered higher risk. It is lower risk than our Climate Change ISA but without its potential to outperform the stock market.
