A general investment account (GIA) is a flexible, straightforward investment account, allowing individuals to invest in various stocks and funds outside of tax wrappers such as ISAs or Pension Plans.
On Crowdcube, your GIA allows you to hold onto or sell your shares in funded companies that go on to list on a public exchange (i.e. through a direct listing or IPO).
We’ve teamed up with Seccl to provide you with a seamless experience so that you can get fast and efficient access to your holdings and review your shares' performance all through your GIA.
Seccl is a custodian and investment technology company regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
