Our investment fund range

At Columbia Threadneedle, we understand you’ll want to invest your money in line with your future goals.  Our funds are designed so you can select them to suit your individual appetite for risk.  You can select funds based on geographic focus and the type of investment, or ‘asset class’ you want to invest in.


There are four main asset classes:


  • Cash / money markets
  • Fixed income (i.e. bonds)
  • Equities (i.e. stocks and shares)
  • Property

Investment options

You can invest in fixed income, equities and property at Columbia Threadneedle.  In some instances, this will be through an investment account or ISA.  As there are two management companies operating open ended investment company funds, it’s possible you may be required to open a second investment account.  The two fund management companies are Threadneedle Investment Services Ltd and Columbia Threadneedle Fund Management Ltd.


Please note, you can only pay into one stocks and shares ISA each tax year, so if you select a fund from each of our management companies, only one can go into a stocks and shares ISA and the other can go to an investment account that doesn’t feature ISA tax benefits.

When we accept your application to purchase a Columbia Threadneedle Product, these Terms and Conditions, your Application Form and, if you are investing in Columbia Threadneedle Funds, the Key Investor Information Document (or, for non–UCITS retail schemes, the non-UCITS Key Investor Information document) and the relevant Prospectus, will together be a binding agreement between you and us.

Please remember that past performance is not a guide to future results. The value of your investments and any income from them is not guaranteed and may go down as well as up. You may not get back the full amount invested.

You should also download and read the relevant fund Key Investor Information Document (KIID). This information is required by law to help you understand the nature and risks of investing in a fund.

Please note that certain Columbia Threadneedle funds and/or certain share classes may not be available to all investors and differing minimum initial investment amounts may apply on different types of shares or units.

Let's talk about risk

All of our savings plans involve a level of risk and the value of your investments can go down as well as up. The level of risk will depend upon the underlying investments that you choose to hold in the plans. You need to be comfortable that you may not get back the original amount invested. Tax allowances and the benefits of tax-efficient accounts are subject to change and tax treatment depends upon your individual circumstances.

Switching between funds

You can switch your investment in a Columbia Threadneedle fund for an investment in another Columbia Threadneedle fund, or to another type of share in your current Columbia Threadneedle fund (provided you are eligible to hold that new type of share and that the new Columbia Threadneedle fund is available to you).

We may charge a switching fee on the exchange of shares of one Columbia Threadneedle fund for shares in another Columbia Threadneedle fund. But the switching fee will not be more than the initial charge for the class of shares into which you are switching your investment. For information about these charges, see the Prospectus for the Columbia Threadneedle fund you wish to switch into.

We do not currently charge for switching shares in one class of Columbia Threadneedle fund for shares in another class of the same Columbia Threadneedle fund. The switching or transfer of shares, being chargeable assets, may constitute a disposal or part disposal for the purposes of UK Capital Gains Tax. If you have any questions about the taxation of your investments, please seek independent tax advice.

Deal instructions for investors wishing to redeem or transfer out of Columbia Threadneedle funds can be placed by post, fax or telephone. You will need the following information in order to place a redemption/transfer:

  • your Client reference/Unitholder number (which can be found on any recent correspondence you have received from us)
  • the name of the fund and the amount you wish to sell
  • Settlement details for payment i.e. bank details

Independent advice

We don’t offer investment advice, you should speak to a financial adviser to find out whether our investment options are suitable for you. If you do not have a financial adviser, you can visit or to find details of one in your area.

Client verification

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) requires us to carry out client verification checks.

In order to process your request as quickly as possible we need to be able to verify you as a client and in the case of a redemption, we require the bank details of where you would like the proceeds to be paid.

We have provided a handy checklist which outlines the documentation we require before we can carry out your request.
