How can I use Isas to invest or buy a property?
With “Isa season” fast approaching in the UK, Claer explores how young people can use the popular tax-free accounts to invest or buy their first property. This week, she meets Ryan, a 22 year old graduate who confesses he has three Isa accounts, but doesn’t know how best to use them — or how to unlock savings bonuses potentially worth tens of thousands of pounds. Expert and practical help is on hand from Harleigh Reid, who used a Help to Buy Isa to buy her first flat at the age of just 24, and Young Money blogger Iona Bain who explains the rules of the new Lifetime Isa, which can be used for property or investing.
