Transfer your child's savings

Whether you want to transfer your child's Child Trust Fund or Junior ISA to us, we could be the right choice to save for your child’s tomorrow today. Capital at risk.

Choose Foresters to look after your child's savings

We look after over 1.2 million children's savings. With Foresters you can start saving from as little as £10 a month up to £9,000 this tax year into a Junior ISA, and the same limit applies for Child Trust Funds running from birthday to birthday. Friends and family can contribute too – helping to build up that savings pot for your child.

We help make investing easy and offer a professionally managed fund, in which the experts at Schroders make investment decisions on your behalf - so you can focus on the things that really matter.

At age 18 your child will have access to their money, where they could use it towards university, their first home and/or to continue to save for their future.

Transfer to our Child Trust Fund

If your child already has a Child Trust Fund and you would like to transfer their savings to the Forester Life Child Trust Fund please read the important documents and complete the transfer form.

Start saving from as little as £10 in a professionally managed fund and help open a range of opportunities for when they reach age 18.

Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. As with all stock market investments the value of your child’s Plan can fall as well as rise and you may get back less than has been paid in.
