Wide range of Junior ISAs to choose from

Junior ISAs are a tax free savings accounts for children. They have replaced the old Child Trust Fund and are great for saving up a lump sum of money for your child when they become an adult (18 years old).

With Baby
ISA, the funds are securely locked away and cannot be accessed until the child reaches 18. Once the child reaches 18 they can withdraw the funds or should they decide to keep the funds within the account, it will automatically switch to a regular ISA account and they can continue to enjoy tax free savings on their investment.

Anyone can pay into the account such as friends, grandparents etc and this makes them ideal for Birthdays, Christmas as you can pay in a lump sum should you wish.

There are two different types of ISAs for children. A Children’s Cash ISA and a baby Stocks and Shares ISA. Each eligible child can hold one of each account but the combined investment allowance must not exceed £4000 per tax year.


If you are unsure if a Baby ISA is a suitable investment then it is recommend that you speak with an independent financial advisor. You can find an advisor from independent websites such as ThinkIFA.com & Unbiased.co.uk
