Junior ISA Transfer
Transfer a Junior Cash ISA
Cash ISAs have suffered from low interest rates for some years and now that balances in Junior ISAs are growing to significant levels it's time to look at alternative ways to improve returns. Our Ethical Stocks and Shares Junior ISA gives you this opportunity over the medium to long term by investing in a single fund containing a mix of stock market investments, government and corporate bonds, property and cash deposits.
Transfer a Stocks and Shares Junior ISA
As the Junior ISA gets nearer to maturity you may be looking to invest the money already built up in your existing stocks and shares Junior ISA to a fund that has a lower risk profile.
If so, our Healthy Investment Junior ISA could be just the place to save and invest for your child as it invests in our Ethical With-profits Fund that includes stocks and shares but also a large proportion of fixed interest bonds, commercial property and cash deposits. Whilst the mix of assets changes over time it will continue to have a low to medium risk profile.
Wouldn’t it be great to offer a child a guaranteed, tax-free payout when they turn 18? Well, with our Junior ISA that’s what they get - for all investments held over 5 years, we guarantee they will receive all of the money that has been invested, plus all the bonuses that have been added. They may also receive a final bonus. For investments held for less than 5 years at age 18, we make this same promise on the 5th anniversary of every investment.
Only a parent or guardian of a child under 16 can open or transfer a Junior ISA, but once it’s open anyone can make more investments. Once they’re over 16 they can even open their own Junior ISA or transfer it to a different provider.
A truly ethical investment- reassuring you that your money isn't invested in harmful industries, no investments are made in alcohol, tobacco and arms industries and gambling and pornography providers.
Junior ISAs are available to any UK resident under the age of 18, who do not have a Child Trust Fund.
For children under the age of 16 they can only be opened by the child’s parents or guardians, but once open anyone can invest in them for the benefit of the child. If the child is between 16 and 18 they can open one themselves.
You might consider transferring a Junior ISA to a Healthy Investment Junior ISA if you already save in a cash Junior ISA or a savings account and you are now looking for an investment that has some risk but the potential for higher returns.
You cannot have both a Child Trust Fund and a Junior ISA but you can transfer an existing Child Trust Fund to a Junior ISA.
You should see this Junior ISA as a medium to long term investment for your child’s savings.
A child can only have one Junior Stocks and Shares (Investment) ISA at any time so the whole of an existing Junior ISA has to be transferred to avoid any loss of the tax free status of a Junior ISA.
