It has been one month since the New ISA was introduced allowing investors to shield up to £15,000 a year from the tax man. The Chancellor upped the tax-free savings allowance in his ‘Budget for savers’ in March, and introduced greater flexibility for transferring accrued ISA savings between cash and stocks and shares.

According to fund platform Hargreaves Lansdown income funds have dominated the ISA charts, with investors favouring home-grown equities which pay a dividend.

It has also been a year since AIM shares were able to be held in an ISA wrapper. Trading in AIM stocks soared last summer, according to fund supermarket Alliance Trust, in the first month that AIM stocks were able to be held in ISA wrappers there was a 150% increase in AIM trading on the platform.
