What is an ISA?
An ISA is an ‘individual savings account’ that allows you to put money into a savings product and any interest that you earn is tax-free. Unlike a regular savings account where you are charged interest on your savings, ISAS come with a tax-free allowance by the UK government, which is currently up to £20,000 worth of savings per tax year.
Fund Ourselves offers an ISA which is tax-free, depending on your circumstances, check your eligibility for more information. See more: Gov.uk

Start with £1,000
You can get started today by investing as little as £1,000 per year - and you have the option to increase this at any time. Your money will be invested across a number of different borrowers who have passed credit and affordability checks to borrow up to £1,500 over a maximum of 12 months.
You can use your ISA allowance of currently up to £20,000 so that any future earnings are tax-free. This may depend on your circumstances and what other products that you have open. We can check your eligibility when you create an account.
We use Auto-Diversify™ to spread each investment over different loans and borrowers – and you can also choose one single investment or multiple investments. We have a customer support team in place to follow up on any arrears and maximise your full returns.
Provision Fund cover
Our investments are not covered by FCSC but we have a ‘Provision Fund’ in place which aims to reimburse our investors subject to the availability of funds. Our customer support team follows up on any defaults.

Can I Choose Where My Money is Invested?

Our Auto-Diversify™ will divide each individual investment across multiple borrowers. A single borrower cannot gain more than 10% of each individual investment. Please see our investment estimate by risk level and outcome statement from here
Can I Withdraw my Investment Early?
At any time, you can withdraw your investments that are not lent out and waiting in our lending pool. You can also request to withdraw your investment lent out to borrowers. You will become ineligible to earn interest after making the withdrawal request. The withdrawal process may take some time to complete. You will start receiving the investment back once the lent-out investments are completed, transferred to another lender or purchased by the provisional fund. To earn the full interest, you may need to have the account open for the entire loan term of up to 12 months.
