    Can I Split an ISA? 19th Apr 17 at 6:24 PM
    I have a cash ISA now at a very low rate so want to transfer it. Ideally I want to put some in a new easy access & the rest in a fixed term locked away for longer. So can I split it to transfer to 2 different new ISAs or is it now forever locked into one sum until I withdraw it/some out of an ISA account & lose the ISA status for that amount (and start again using this years allowance to reinvest)?

    Yes, you can.

    They always ask you if you want to transfer the full amount (often unknown) or only part of it.
    We are born naked, wet and hungry...Then things get worse.

    .withdrawal, NOT withdrawel ..bear with me, NOT bare with me
    .definitely, NOT definately ......separate, NOT seperate
    should have, NOT should of
    .....guaranteed, NOT guarenteed

    But you must use the new ISA provider's transfer process. Don't try to move it yourself.
