Account setup

Which tax wrappers and accounts can I open on YOUR Platform?

YOUR Platform offers General Investment Accounts (GIA) in sole names, Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs), Junior ISAs, a SIPP pension account and we can hold accounts within external tax wrappers such as Offshore Bonds from CLI and Small Self Administered Scheme pensions.

What is a GIA?

General Investment Account (GIA) is an account that allows you to save and invest your money, it is not tax efficient like an ISA and is subject to Capital Gains Tax and potentially Income Tax on any income paid.

What is an ISA?

Individual Savings Account (ISA) is an Investment Product that has tax efficient features and can help with Capital Gains Tax Planning.

How do I update my details?

Please contact your Adviser to change your personal details.  You can update your email address, mobile phone number and password used for the platform by accessing the menu on the top right-hand side when viewing your portfolio page and clicking on ‘Profile’.

What are the names on my accounts?

We can give accounts a name to help you identify what the investment within this account is for. Some examples are ‘new car’, wedding fund’, or ‘retirement’.  This can be done by contacting your Adviser or YOUR Platform directly at

What is an ISA declaration?

The ISA declaration is requesting that you confirm you are happy with the terms of an ISA. This includes declaring you are above the age of 18, have not subscribed and will not subscribe more than the overall subscription limit in total to any combination of permitted ISAs in the same tax year.

Can I open a joint account?

No, the option to create a joint account isn’t currently available, however, we hope to offer this in the near future.  In most scenarios, there is little difference from holding matching single name GIAs however your Adviser will be able to discuss options around this.

Is YOUR Platform available to non UK Residents?

No. Unfortunately only UK Residents can hold accounts with YOUR Platform.



What are my ‘Messages’?

The messages section allows us to pass you important information and documents.  This will include updates to your accounts, acceptance of terms and mandates, and regulatory reports such as your annual tax statements and regular valuations.

If you need to contact anyone regarding your investments or any changes in your details, you should do this via your Adviser.  Where you need any assistance with the platform or cannot contact your Adviser, you can contact us directly at

What are the Value and Growth figures?

The Value figures for your account and for each investment held are the current value of these assets.

The Growth figure for your account shows the change in growth against money you have paid in up to the end date, this is based on the period you enter into the date boxes on your screens.  If you have transferred accounts on to the platform, this will reflect only the growth in value since the transfer.

The Growth figure for each of your investments reflect the growth in that particular asset over the period chosen.  Where assets have been bought and sold over the period, these figures may not sum to the account total, and values could have been realised to cash and/or other assets.

Why can’t I see my cash or investments?

If you are in the process of transferring assets to your account, these will display on your ‘Investments’ section once settled with us.  Where such transfers are pending, you will be able to see a summary of them by clicking into a given account and opening the ‘Pending Transactions’ section.

Where trades have recently been placed, you may see the transaction move from units in investments to or from cash over the process.  The details of a transaction in progress can be seen in the ‘Pending Transactions’ section.

Why is some of my account held in cash?

Cash is held on your account to cover upcoming withdrawals or when fees are due.  There may be excess cash in accounts to cover this.  Some investments may produce income which will accrue on your account.

Is interest payable on cash held on my account?

Our custodian, SECCL, will use a banking partner to hold cash and this will sometimes provide for interest to be paid.  Where this is paid it will all be passed directly to the relevant clients, none will be retained by SECCL or by YOU Asset Management.  The prevailing interest payable on cash within accounts on YOUR Platform can be found here


Pay into your account

Which dates will my regular payments be made?

If you wish to pay in by bank transfer or standing order you can pay in any day which is convenient for you but please confirm with your adviser in advance of changing the regular date so we can be sure the money is invested as soon as possible.  For direct debit payments we can make these on the 7th, 14th, 21st or 28th of each month.

How can I pay into my account?

Your Adviser will confirm when and how you can pay into your accounts.  Please refer to your suitability reports or communication from your Adviser for these details.

  • Click the ‘Pay In’ button

Where you choose a direct debit, this will require a mandate to be set up.  If this has not been done, you will be asked to do so and you will receive confirmation in your ‘Messages’ section.
