    • Or make monthly payments, starting from £50 a month

Investment options

Single or monthly payments?

When you invest in a Scottish Widows OEIC fund, you will be allocated a number of shares. You choose either to make a single payment or monthly payments.

If you invest by single payment, you can choose either Income shares (which could provide you with a regular pay-out of income), or Accumulation shares (any income earned by the shares is kept in the fund to accumulate. The fund price then reflects the fact that this income is automatically reinvested. If you’re investing for income, you should consider funds offering ‘income shares’ instead).

If you decide to invest monthly, only Accumulation shares are available.

Funds available

We offer a variety of OEIC funds, including UK and overseas funds, multi-manager and specialist funds. Our range of funds include exposure to different asset classes such as Cash, Bonds, Property and Equities.

Key reading


  • The value of your OEIC, and any income from it, is not guaranteed and can go up and down depending on investment performance (and currency exchange rate changes where a fund invests overseas). You may get back less than the original amount you invested
  • Each fund has its own risks. Please see the relevant Key and Supplementary Investor Information documents for further information. Links to these documents can be found above
  • The benefits of the tax advantages depend on your personal circumstances
  • Tax rules can change
