New Tax Year: Act Now to Maximise Your ISA Gains

THE WEEK: Morningstar columnist Rodney Hobson says despite the threat of Brexit investors should get in early and start using up their 2016/17 ISA allowance

This article is part of our Guide to Maximising Your Pension, helping investors build up the maximum possible pension pot – and turn it into the maximum possible retirement income.

Once a year this column urges investors to start investing their annual ISA allowance straight away and not wait for the last minute scramble in the final days of March. The time for action has come round again.

This year the situation is admittedly less clear-cut, as the referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU is looming. It is likely that this will cause some, perhaps much, nervousness in the markets, although such fears may be overdone. The Scottish referendum had remarkably little impact, even when it looked as if there would be a vote for independence.
