Virgin FTSE tracker ISA: Our customers have over £2.5 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 - ideal if you are new to investing, as it doesn't put all your eggs in one basket.

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 on the London Stock Exchange, 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 upward trend of the market rather than the movement of individual shares which can rise and fall a lot more.

Customers investing their savings in our index tracking fund since it launched in March 1995 have received an average return of 7.0% a year, turning an original investment of £3000 into £10,812. Show graph.

If that seems a long time, here is a table showing the returns you would have got from our tracker fund in each of the last five years. Show table.

Always remember though, past performance isn’t a guide to the future, and with all stock market investments the value of your savings and the income you get from them can fall as well as rise, so you may not get back the amount you invested.

Why choose this ISA?

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

Our FTSE Tracker ISA is higher risk than our Bond and Gilt ISA and a Cash ISA. However, it has the potential for higher returns, over the longer term.

The same applies to our Climate Change ISA, which can offer the potential for an even greater return, though is higher risk than our tracker ISA.

Graph illustrating the risk versus return of our investment choices

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.
