A Junior ISA is a long-term savings account set up by a parent or guardian with a Junior ISA provider, specifically to build a nest egg for their child's future and which benefits from a number of tax advantages. Junior ISAs may be held in cash and stocks and shares and are available to children born in the UK.

A stocks & shares Junior ISA allows you to put money into a range of different investments. Beanstalk Junior ISA has a simple choice of two tracker funds (an L&G cash fund and a Fidelity global shares fund).

If your child already has a Child Trust Fund, then they will need to transfer it to open either type of Junior ISA. Transferring is really simple: when you apply for a Beanstalk account, we will ask you if you have an existing account to transfer. We need a few details from you and then we take care of the rest

Junior ISAs have a contribution limit of £9,000 total per year.
