Child Trust Fund

About Child Trust Funds

Child Trust Funds were a type of tax efficient saving available to children born between 1 September 2002 and 2 January 2011. Although we can no longer accept new applications into the Child Trust Fund, we do offer a range of options for investing for your child’s future. Want to find out more? 

How to invest in an existing Child Trust Fund

If your child was born between 1 September 2002 and 2 January 2011, you and your family and friends can continue to invest into their existing Scottish Friendly Child Trust Fund.

Other ways to invest for children

If your child was born after 2nd January 2011 or doesn't have a Child Trust Fund and you're looking for another way to invest for your child's future, why not take a look at our My Select (Junior ISA) or Child Bond.

My Select (Junior ISA)

Use your child's Junior ISA allowance to invest for their future.

A selection of eight funds to choose from, so you can tailor your child's investment.

From £10 a month or more, a lump sum from £50 or transfer in from another Junior ISA provider.

When you take out a My Select (Junior ISA) we'll pay £50 into the Junior ISA for your child. T&Cs apply.

Child Bond

You could start investing tax-efficiently for a child you love today.

Start from only £10 to £25 a month.

Invest for either 10 years, or until the child's 18th or 21st birthday.

A small amount of life cover for the child is also included.
