How to invest

Once you've chosen your investment trusts, it’s easy to start investing.

Here to make investing easy

Invest how you want, when you want

Investing in abrdn investment trusts is simple. You can choose to invest through abrdn – or through another online platform of your choice. 

With abrdn, you can use our flexible Share Plan or tax-efficient ISA. Or you can use our Investment Plan for Children to build a nest-egg for a child.

Best of all, you can stop, start and change contributions, without penalty.

Laws and tax rules may change. The value of tax benefits will depend upon individual circumstances.

Risk warning

The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and you may get back less than the amount invested.

abrdn Investment Trust Share Plan

Our Investment Trust Share Plan provides a flexible way to invest lump sum or monthly amounts in investment trusts outside of an ISA. You can invest up to £25,000 online and returns are taxable.

abrdn Investment Plan for Children

Whether you’re a parent, grandparent or family friend, our Investment Plan for Children lets you invest lump sums or monthly amounts for a child – and proceeds can be taxed in your or the child’s name.
