What sort of share can I buy for my ISA


Guest Tiresias

Question

Guest Tiresias

Hello, I have a newbie question: What sort of shares are you allowed to buy for your ISA, is there a list or are you only allowed to buy shares in GBP?

 

I am asking because I own some shares of VUSA but when I tried to purchase VYM I got an error message something like "invalid tax wrapper", is it because VYM is in USD?

 

Thank you in advance!

Hi  thanks for your post!

 

You're absolutely right in saying that some markets are restricted from trading on an ISA account.

 

Usually, the restricted ones are ETFs that trade on the US market, as there are issues with their suitability under the ISA tax efficient wrapper. You can trade a lot of US denominated stocks, it's just the ETF aspect that causes the problem.

 

The way to check whether the particular market is available would be via our ETF screener. You can follow this link to find this section and when you first open the page it'll ask you whether you want to view all ETFs or just the ones that are ISA eligible.

 

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions!

 

Thanks,

 

Rob

Thank you very much one last quick unrelated question: Is it possible to buy/sell long term calls/puts in the 1+ year horizon I.E. LEAPS

 

Once again thank you for your reply.

Hi  so sorry for the late reply!

 

We do indeed offer options on equities. Due to the number of markets and the relatively low demand, you can only trade these over the phone with us. I'm afraid however that this is not available on Share Dealing/ISA accounts, just Spread Betting or CFDs.

 

The stock itself will also have to be sufficiently liquid and large for us to be able to offer options, but generally if there's an option on the underlying market, we'll be able to offer it to you.

 

Are there any particular stocks you'd like for me to check if we can offer options?

 

Thanks,

 

Rob

    • Ever feel like you're stuck in crypto traffic? Slow transactions and outrageous fees are the bane of using blockchains like Ethereum at their core (Layer 1). These networks can only handle a limited number of transactions per second, causing major congestion during peak hours. The result? Frustratingly slow processing and expensive fees for users.   But wait, there's hope! Layer 3 rollups are here to revolutionize the game. Imagine them as express lanes built on top of existing bypass roads (Layer 2 solutions). Layer 2 already helps by alleviating some of the traffic on the main highway (Layer 1). Layer 3 rollups take it a step further, adding dedicated express lanes to these bypass roads for super-fast processing. This innovative approach tackles Layer 1's congestion by distributing the workload across multiple layers, ultimately leading to faster, cheaper, and more scalable blockchain applications.   While specific layer 3 implementations are still under development, some projects are paving the way. Immutable X (IMX token) built on StarkNet (a Layer 2 scaling solution) and dYdX (DYDX token), a decentralized exchange on StarkNet, are both exploring layer 3 rollups to achieve even smoother transactions. Keep an eye out for zkLink Nova, a major player in the scalability game. This cutting-edge technology leverages the strengths of existing solutions to deliver groundbreaking performance. Backed by leading crypto institutions with over $23 million invested in the zkLink ecosystem, zkLink Nova is generating serious buzz ahead of its ZKL token listing on Bitget. Get ready for a smoother ride on the crypto highway!
