  • A Junior ISA is a tax-efficient way to save for your child's future.
  • Once the person with Parental Responsibility has opened the account (the Registered Contact), anyone can contribute into it, subject to the annual allowance.
  • Only the child can take money out of the Junior ISA after they turn 18 and it turns into an adult ISA.

What you can choose to invest in

  • Over 2,000 funds.
  • UK and International Stocks and Shares.
  • Investment Trusts, ETFs and other options like bonds and gilts.
All available with no account fee and the same simple, fair and competitive charges you’re used to from ii.

Transferring a Junior ISA to us

You can transfer in an existing Junior ISA or Child Trust Fund to us online. Just select 'Existing Junior ISA' when filling in your child's details (at the bottom of the page). To complete this section, you will need:
  • Your current Junior ISA account number
  • Your existing provider details
  • An estimated valuation (cash and/or investments) of the Junior ISA
It's important to know you can only invest in one Junior ISA each tax year, either cash only or a stocks and shares one, in case you have both. Also, during the transfer process there may be a period of time when you'll be unable to sell your assets, how long this takes will depend on how complex the transfer is. However, we have a dedicated team who will ensure that your transfer is as fast and efficient as possible.
