Invest for the future

If you’re looking to invest money for your child’s future, a Junior ISA may be a good option. Money is invested, which means it could grow more than in a normal bank account. But remember, the value of investments can go down as well as up and your capital is at risk. Eligibility criteria, fees and charges apply.
