What is a Junior ISA?
A Junior Individual Savings Account, or JISA, is a tax-efficient way to invest money on behalf of a child so it’s there for them when they reach adulthood. Any returns are free from income and capital gains tax. Whether they’re heading to university or hoping to get on the property ladder, a Wealthify Junior ISA is a great way to kickstart their future.
What will you pay?
Simple fees with no hidden surprises.
Ongoing management fees
Wealthify charge a monthly fee for managing your investments, currently up to 0.7% a year.
Investment fund fees
You’ll pay an annual percentage of your investment – this can vary, but is typically between 0.16% and 0.23% a year for the Original portfolios, or between 0.42% and 0.69% a year for the Ethical portfolio.
Am I eligible?
Your child can only have one Junior Stocks & Shares ISA and one Junior Cash ISA at any time. If you've already set up a Junior Stocks & Shares ISA or a Child Trust Fund with another provider, you would have to transfer it to Wealthify.
You can open a new Junior ISA on behalf of a child if:
- You're the child's parent or guardian
- You don't already have a Junior Stocks and Shares ISA or Child Trust Fund
You can only open and/or pay into one a year, so if you want to open a new Junior ISA, you will need to transfer any existing Junior ISAs into the new account
- If your child lives in the UK
