    Once we’ve completed all our checks, we’ll send you your login details.

The value of investments may fall as well as rise. You may not get back the full amount that you originally invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. There is no guarantee about the level of capital or income returns that will be generated.

ALREADY INVESTING? TRANSFER YOUR EXISTING FUNDS

It’s easy to transfer in your existing funds when you apply for a CAF Investment Account, or after your account has been opened. What’s more, we won't charge you to transfer in your charity’s existing investments.

If you decide to change share class, other charges may apply. Contact us to find out more.

All you need to do is:

  • download the Stock Transfer form
  • complete a separate form for each fund/stock you hold
  • ask the authorised signatories, on the mandate you have with that Fund Manager, to sign the form(s)

If you’re applying for a CAF Investment Account, return the Stock Transfer form(s) to us at:

CAF Financial Solutions Limited
Saving and Investment team
25 Kings Hill Avenue
