Transferring share ISA's

I have two share isa's with one provider, the first is performing poorly and projections look like it is likely to continue poorly over the next few years. The second is performing ok. My question is can I transfer the poor performance isa to another provider and leave the second isa with the original provider. This would mean two share isa's with different providers.

The only rule about the number of ISA providers relates to the current year contributions. Are the 2 ISAs in the same account or in different accounts? If they are in different accounts, there would be no problem, but if they are in the same account then the transfer form might not be able to distinguish between them. The new provider has to do the transfer in order for it to retain ISA status. You could also reinvest the poorly performing ISA in the better ISA or in another fund with the same provider. Mike



Many thanks for the reply and information, I'll certainly look at a better performing fund with the same provider.

Until recently I had 3 ISAs - Aberdeen, Share Centre and Hargreaves Lansdowne - all opened in different years, so all perfectly legal.
