Unleash the power of our general investment account

When investing, your capital is at risk.

What is a General Investment Account?

A GIA, or General Investment Account is a simple way to invest if you have already used your £20,000 ISA allowance for the tax year. There is no limit to how much you can invest in your GIA. And you can use the CIRCA5000 app to access your money at any time, without paying withdrawal fees. Learn more.

Make a positive impact

Invest in funds that only include companies actively making the world a better place. Funds are built around the most innovative themes defining the future of the global economy.

Grow your money long-term

Make your savings work as hard as you do, and invest them long-term. Set up automatic monthly contributions with our GIA.

No deposit limit

There is no limit on how much you can deposit into your GIA each year. Note that investment gains and income may be subject to tax.

We are specialists in impact investing — the gold standard of investing sustainably.

We invest in themes and companies that we believe will benefit from structural market trends, such as the energy transition to renewables.

I’ve been investing monthly with CIRCA5000, formerly tickr since November 2019. I’ve seen my investment go up and down since then, up most recently thankfully! The app is very user friendly and informative. When I’ve needed further info or help, the ‘live chat’ is great. Keep up the good work👍
