ISA Portfolio

The ISA Portfolio is available on the Aviva Platform and lets your clients invest tax-efficiently in a wide range of collective investments and equities from all key investment sectors. In fact there are thousands of funds to choose from.

It is a flexible ISA, allowing your client to withdraw money and replace it within the same tax year without affecting their ISA allowance.

Platform charges

The Aviva Platform charge depends on the value of your client’s ISA Portfolio.

We include any investments your client holds in the Investment or Pension Portfolios when we calculate the charge for the ISA Portfolio. Because of this, your client may receive a discount on the charges for their ISA Portfolio.

For more information on the Aviva Platform charges and examples of how the charging works, please see the Aviva Platform due diligence toolkit.

Aviva charge for portfolio value
£0 to £400,000 0.25%

OCF/TER fund manager charges

Most investment fund managers make an initial charge for investing in their funds.

Fund managers will also take charges that depend on the investments chosen. These charges will be expressed as the ongoing charge figure (OCF) or total expense ratio (TER). These cover the charge made by the fund manager for managing the investment as well as expenses incurred by the fund. Please note the OCF and TER are variable and may change over time.

Equity dealing charges

We’ve appointed Winterflood Business Services as our nominated stockbroker to carry out equity dealing on behalf of your clients when they invest through the ISA Portfolio. The equity trading costs table shows the charges for equity dealing.

Equity trading costs
Per individual trade £7.50
Per trade within a model portfolio £5

Extra information
  • You can't set the payment start date for the initial advice charge for a future date
  • We will take the initial advice charge before we invest your client's money in the ISA Portfolio.
  • There is no minimum or maximum initial advice charge, but you can't input an amount greater than the amount of the regular payment
  • This charging option is only available as a monetary amount and not as a percentage - and only where your client is making regular payments.
  • The initial advice charge payment will continue until the end of the agreed period or until regular premiums stop.
  • We will take the initial advice charge before we invest your client's money in the ISA Portfolio
  • Each single or transfer payment operates in its own right. This means it is possible to receive advice payments on a number of different transfers
  • The payment type for percentage or sterling can vary by each single or transfer charge
  • The initial advice charge is payable immediately. You can't delay payment to a future date.
  • There is no minimum or maximum initial advice charge, but you can't enter an amount greater than the single or transfer payment.
  • Unlike the initial advice charge, you can choose to start the ongoing advice at a future date - it doesn't have to start immediately and will be taken from the actual fund.
  • You can increase, decrease, stop or start the ongoing advice charge at any time, but we will need confirmation from your client
  • The ongoing advice charge payment is limited to the term of the portfolio.
