The interest on our innovative finance ISAs is tax free. This means that,
while you usually pay income tax on interest from other mini bonds, you don't pay any on
our ISA bonds interest. You do not pay any additional personal income tax or capital gains
tax on any money you earn from an innovative finance ISA. You don't need to declare any
ISA interest as the ISA manager does this for you.
Your Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future.

London Capital & Finance Plc is a commercial lender that is seeking to help support UK businesses with the provision of credit whilst at the same time providing investors with an attractive return on their investment. Borrowing companies must provide adequate security and undergo a strict due diligence process. Profits from the lending fees and interest on the loans are used to pay investors their fixed return.
The returns are a fixed-rate of 6.5%, 8.0% and 8.95% per annum for the 2, 3 and 5 year ISAs respectively as outlined in the brochures and Information Memoranda.
Yes. The returns are fixed for the duration of your investment period, there are no hidden fees or charges so you get a return for 100% of the money you invest.
Investors' funds are secured by a charge over the assets of LC&F and over the assets of borrowing companies. This security is held in trust for all investors by an independent Security Trustee, Global Security Trustees Ltd.
LC&F is a successful corporate lending company. They lend money to companies who have undergone a strict due diligence process and can provide adequate security for the loan.
What is adequate security? When funds are lent out, a charge over either property and/or other assets of the borrowing company is taken at no more than 75% loan to value. So, for example: with a loan of £750,000, the value of the charged assets of the Borrowing Company would need to be at least £1 million.
LC&F has appointed an independent security trustee to hold a charge over LC&F by way of debenture, which includes the charge held by LC&F over its borrowers, in the interest of the bond holders, should LC&F not be able to meet its commitments.
The frequency of interest payments is dependent on the chosen investment term, the different options are highlighted in the below table.
|Investment Term||2 Years
(Series 2 ISA)
(Series 4 ISA)
(Series 3 ISA)
|Interest Paid||Every 6 months||Quarterly||Annually|
Principal capital invested is repaid at the end of the selected term. Compound bonds pay interest and principal at maturity.
£5,000 is the starting minimum investment with multiples of £100 thereafter with no upper limit.

• Who want an above average return on invested funds
• Who want the security of a bond that is asset-backed
• Are looking for income over a choice of investment periods
