Joe Vallender, LandlordInvest’s Chief Technology Officer: “It probably does not come as a surprise that our IFISA investors are both more active and tend to invest more than our Standard account investors, taking an advantage of earning tax-free income. We believe that this trend is likely to continue given that the current tax years is soon coming to an end and more savers will look to allocate their portfolios into tax-efficient products, including the new Innovative Finance ISA.

We have ramped up our capabilities to accept an influx of savers looking to invest into our property-backed IFISA and will also shortly looking to make our ISA flexible, giving savers more freedom to replace withdrawn cash .”
