Re: Barclays ISA transfer times

Have you made many transfers?

No. Just the once, from a Barclays Cash ISA to a Barclays Stock & Shares ISA. As I remember it, all I had to do was phone Barclays Stockbrokers.

Re: Simplest effective backup?

If you do, one variant that you might consider, is running your own personal cloud. What you might do, is get a NAS Hard drive - it would be a box about the size of a router, with a power supply as well.

Re: what ISA account

I am not sure one individual can have several ISAs with different providers.

HMRC's rules are quite straight forward. You can only put this tax year's ISA allowance into one Stocks and Shares ISA (and one cash ISA, should you wish). [more]
