We will assess that a share's value meets the minimum value threshold at the point of purchasing, based on independent third party data feeds, at our sole discretion.

**Bear in mind you can deposit a maximum of £20,000 into your 2021/22 ISA. To receive a free share valued at £300 or more, you will need to transfer an existing ISA you hold with another provider.

How do you determine my ISA portfolio size?

We will look at the cash you deposited between 23 September and 30 November 2021.

For transfers, your ISA will be valued at whichever is higher:

A) Cash and positions value at time of awarding, or

I don’t see the free share in my ISA!

Free shares for this offer will be awarded on 2 December 2021. This allows for you to make multiple contributions during the offer period and then receive maximum free share you’re eligible for.

Due to rules around the ISA annual allowance, your free share will be awarded to your General Investment Account (GIA).

What if I want to close or withdraw from my ISA?

If you close or withdraw from your Freetrade ISA within one year of receiving a free share under this offer, the free share you received will be forfeited.

If you have sold the free share before closing the ISA, you will have to repay to Freetrade the value of the free share at the time of awarding.
