Stuart Law, CEO at Assetz Capital, believed that consumers were starting to vote with their feet with regards to finding competitive rates of return, with IFIsas set to benefit.
“We are very encouraged by the initial reaction to our Isa.
“The landscape is changing and people are looking for places where their money will work hard for them, and that is increasingly not in cash Isas.
“This is a watershed year for the IFIsa.
“It’s up to the whole industry to deliver on this opportunity and help create a large-scale alternative way to invest in Isas, just as the government originally intended when it created them.”
