Among all the excitement a new baby brings, you’ve probably started thinking about their future. If you’re looking for an easy way to invest for them, a OneFamily Junior ISA – brought to you in partnership with Bounty – could be the right choice. You can open our Junior ISA for your child if they are under the age of 16 and eligible for a Junior ISA.
If they have a Child Trust Fund, you could arrange to transfer it to our Junior ISA. To find out how, call us on 0800 1389 007.
You can invest up to £4,080 a year in our stocks and shares Junior ISA, less any amount paid into a cash Junior ISA. We believe that stocks and shares offer greater potential for growing your child’s money over the long term. In fact, studies have shown that over every 18-year period for the last 50 years, stocks and shares have grown more than cash or building society accounts†. Of course, good returns in the past don’t necessarily means good returns in the future.
There are a couple of other things you should bear in mind. First, only your child can take the money out, and only once they’re 18, when they might need it most. Second, as the account invests in stocks and shares, it has good potential to grow. But it’s worth remembering that its value can fall as well as rise. This is normal for this kind of investment, but it does mean your child could get back less than has been paid in.
