Peerport Limited (trading as MultiISA) is targeting the multi-million-pound market and claims to offer a holistic approach to Individual Savings Account (ISA) management. The company asserts that traditional ISA managers don’t give users enough flexibility with their investment choices. Current ISA rules restrict investors to only one ISA of each type per tax year. This impedes the investors’ ability to build a diversified IFISA portfolio. Peerport argues that its portal offers investors the freedom to operate multiple accounts like Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA), Cash ISA, and Stocks & Shares ISA under a single ISA management platform. The company will use the investment to finalise the build-out of its end to end platform, fund its office space, manage marketing costs, oversee staffing costs, pay regulatory fees and supervise working capital.
