    Halifax ISA Investor - Help with withdrawal. 10th May 12 at 3:15 PM
    Hi all,

    When I was 18 (and naive) I opened an ISA. 5 years on and I had a decent amount (around 7k) saved up.

    As I was (and am) in my final year of University and money was tight I decided I needed to access some of the funds.

    So I withdrew 650 from the ISA account. Since then I've received a regulation statement informing me that my account balance had dropped by circa 1,300.

    Basically, I didn't realise that I'd lose money by withdrawing from the ISA as opposed to closing it. Is there any way I can regain that money, or is it gone forever and I've learnt a very expensive lesson?
