The benefits of our Junior Stocks & Shares ISA

Generous annual allowance

You can make regular contributions or invest a lump sum up to the annual £9,000 allowance for each child or grandchild.

Tax efficient

You won’t pay capital gains tax on any profits and there’s no tax on dividends from shares or the income earned on bonds.


Once your child reaches 18 the account matures and rolls into an adult ISA and they can access the money.

Make their savings work harder

With savings rates so low you could see your money eroded by inflation. A Junior Stocks & Shares ISA will give your money the chance to grow faster than inflation.

Our Junior Stocks & Shares ISA is ideal for

Investing in a Junior Stocks & Shares ISA is one of the most straightforward ways to save for the next generation in a tax-efficient way. Here are some other reasons:

You want to invest for your children or grandchildren

A Junior Stocks & Shares ISA is a great way for parents and grandparents to invest money for their children or grandchildren, which cannot be accessed until they turn 18.

You’d like to consolidate several existing Junior ISAs

You can easily transfer and consolidate existing Junior Cash ISAs or Child Trust Funds held with other providers into our Junior Stocks & Shares ISA.

You’d like investment flexibility and choice

You can invest a Junior ISA in a wide range of assets in order to take advantage of global investment opportunities and maximise growth.

What is a Junior ISA?

Junior ISAs (or JISAs) are a popular way for family and friends to build up tax-efficient savings or investments for a child.

The tax benefits are the same as an adult ISA, with no capital gains or income tax, but withdrawals are only possible from the age of 18 when it automatically converts to an adult ISA, meaning the pot can be useful to help with the cost of university or a deposit for a house.
