Investing in their future

A Junior ISA with Foresters is a tax-efficient savings account for adults to save on behalf of a child starting from as little as £10 a month up to £9,000 this tax year. Friends and family can contribute too – helping to build up your child's savings pot. 

We help make investing easy and offer a professionally managed fund, in which the experts at Schroders make investment decisions on your behalf. With a risk-controlled and sustainable approach, no more than 60% of your child’s savings will be invested in shares – protecting against market fluctuations but giving the opportunity for growth.

At age 18 the Junior ISA will automatically roll into an Adult ISA and your child will have access to the money, where they can choose to use it towards university, their first home and/or to continue to save. For more information about what happens as they reach age 18 visit our Junior ISA Hub.
