Zurich Wealth business sold to Embark

As of 1st May 2020 a section of Zurich’s Savings & Investments business has been sold to Embark.

What does this mean for me?

Accessing your account

The following products:

  • Zurich Portfolio (which includes Stocks & Shares ISA, Cash ISA, Investment Account, Retirement Account, Junior Stocks & Shares ISA and Junior Retirement Account)
  • Sterling ISA

have been transferred to Embark and they have taken over the operation and provision of these products.

Applying for a new ISA

If you are looking to take out an Individual Savings Account (ISA) with Zurich, unfortunately you are no longer able to do so. You can apply for an ISA from other providers through your independent financial adviser, if you already have one. 

If you don’t have an adviser, you can find one in your area by visiting www.unbiased.co.uk and reading reviews of financial advisers by visiting www.vouchedfor.co.uk. Zurich is not responsible for the content of external websites.

Bear in mind, you might be charged for any financial advice you receive.
