Hargreaves Lansdown Junior Stocks and Shares ISA Overview

Junior ISAs are tax-efficient investment and savings accounts for children. A Junior ISA must be opened by a parent or legal guardian but once opened anyone can contribute. It can be used for a number of different purposes such as saving towards a child's university fees or a deposit on their first home.

  • Invest up to £4,128 per child per tax year - free from UK income tax and capital gains tax.
  • Anybody can contribute - friends and family can add money to the Junior ISA.
  • Money in a Junior Stocks & Shares ISA is ring-fenced until the child's 18th birthday, so there's plenty of time to maximise growth if you start early.
  • Junior ISAs can be a great way to encourage good saving habits from a young age.
