- no tax for UK holders and no need to report on annual tax return
- no need for an IFA (I suspect they don't care for SCs much) and no IFA fees
- hedge against inflation (which is quite hard to find)
- cash holdings in e.g. a bank would only be covered up to £85k FSCS (or whatever the limit currently is); NS&I is backed by the govt (no FSCS limit...?) and limit is higher; also bear in mind any Premium bonds that might be held
Any other thoughts/comments/suggestions/ideas?
Personally, I'm staying put at the moment
