individual savings account (ISA)
The new tax-exempt savings scheme launched in April 1999 as a replacement for the personal equity plan ( PEP) and tax-efficient special savings scheme ( TESSA). ISAs can be used to invest in a very wide range of investments and consist of three components: cash (bank and building society accounts and National Savings), insurances (investment-type insurance plans) and stocks and shares ( Unit Trusts, OEICS, investment trusts, direct investment in shares, corporate bonds and gilts). From 2000-01 the annual investment limit is £5,000. Financial Services Glossary
