Junior ISA

How do Junior ISAs work?

If you're a parent or guardian, setting up a Junior ISA with myM&G is a simple and flexible way to save for your child's future.

Junior ISAs are special tax-efficient savings accounts that can be accessed by children when they turn 18 – so you really could be playing an important part in your child's financial future.

The value of your investment can go down as well as up so you might not get back the amount you put in.

The tax rules for ISAs may change in the future, and their tax advantages depend on your individual circumstances.

Please note that any losses made in an ISA cannot be used to offset gains elsewhere.

Invest in a Junior ISA with myM&G

  • If you have parental responsibility or legal guardianship for a child, it's easy to open a Junior ISA – when you've done this, you are known as the Junior ISA's 'Registered Contact'
  • As the Registered Contact, you can manage the Junior ISA on myM&G alongside any other M&G investments you may have
  • You can invest up to £9,000 in a Junior ISA in the 2024/2025 tax year with either a lump sum or regular monthly contributions
  • Just like an ISA, the Junior ISA is tax-efficient, so you won't need to pay personal income or capital gains tax on any profits
  • Tax-efficient status also means you can still claim any tax allowances that you're due because of your age or personal circumstances
  • Setting up a Junior ISA will have no effect on your individual ISA allowance (which is £20,000 during the 2024/2025 tax year)
  • It's easy for others to add money to the Junior ISA – they just need to make a bank transfer to you (the Registered Contact). Once you‘ve received the money in your account, you can then start investing for them
  • Children can control their own accounts once they reach 16 and can access their money aged 18 – at this point the Junior ISA turns into an ISA
  • We'll never charge you for transferring your child's Junior ISA to another provider
  • Junior ISAs are available to all UK resident children who don't already have a Child Trust Fund (CTF). If a child already has a CTF it can be transferred into a Junior ISA but the child cannot hold both

MyM&G provides you with a great range of funds to choose from, plus all the benefits of nearly 100 years of investment experience and an active approach to investing.

We focus on helping you get the best from your money and enabling you to do all your investing in one easy place.
