Thank you for your very prompt advice.
This was my original intention but I thought it would be easier all round and less costly for Halifax to sell in their own product,do a cash transfer, and for me to pick up a new fund from Barclay's list of products. However,I do have the transfer form and will proceed the way you suggest.I am awaiting a call back from Barclays just to confirm that they can easily sell the Halifax Corporate Bond fund.
I have to say that Halifax have disappointed me in many respects over this product and their advice.Initially sold as a low risk safe predictable return of around 5.5% tax free within the ISA it performed well initially until the last 18 months where it has actually lost value. The customer service was very poor when I also queried the charges levied on the account and felt that the advisor had no idea how they were calculated and now the incorrect advice given regarding selling the shares.
In between Halifax as you know,try to cross sell by offering an annual review. In itself it may be a good idea for some but not for just renewing regular savers etc.When I spoke to their IFA I mentioned my disappointment with the return on this Corporate Bond fund and he quickly demonstrated he knew nothing about it.He said if I didn't want fixed low returns of a cash ISA,i would have to take more risk and invest in equities.When I explained it wasn't a cash ISA,he said he was very aware of his subject as he was an IFA and sarcastically said you obviously know what you want and said goodbye!! No wonder things are tough at HBOS currently.
