Child Trust Fund

Scottish Friendly no longer accepts new applications into the Child Trust Fund.

Why not take a look at our investments for children below.

Other ways to invest for children

If your child was born before 1 September 2002 or after 2 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.

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 an existing Child Trust Fund.

These investments can either be regular monthly or one-off payments - to a maximum of £4,260 per year. Once added this money cannot be withdrawn until the child reaches age 18.

Also it will still be possible to change the type of account to a Junior ISA/ Child Bond and/or move it to another provider.

To make additional investment, please read the Managed Growth Fund - Key Investor Information document before completing the CTF Additional Investment Form.

For further information relating to the charges and costs associated with the Managed Growth Fund, as detailed in the Key Investor Information Document, please see our Enhanced disclosure of fund charges and costs page.
