Invest in the future

At Lloyds Bank we understand you may have a range of financial goals, such as a new car, a holiday or simply investing for your future. Investing with Lloyds Bank may help you reach your financial ambitions, but this also means there is more risk. Savings accounts offer steady growth and are normally quickly accessible so you should look to keep enough money in them for emergencies and short term expenses before thinking about investing.

Please remember that the value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise, and you may get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure about investing, seek financial advice. There will normally be a charge for that advice.


Find the account that is right for you. It is easy to get started whether you have a lump sum or want to invest regularly.


We offer a host of articles and investment search tools to help you find your next investment.
