We all want our kids to get the best possible start in adult life and a Junior ISA could help build a long-term investment for them.
When they turn 18 it could provide a handy cash sum for whatever they want - from a deposit on their first house, to paying for university costs.
Keep in mind stock market investments can go down as well as up, so your child could get back less than you've paid in. If the child withdraws money before the end of 5 years, there will be a £50 deduction from the withdrawal value.
Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and tax rules could change in the future.
About the Scottish Friendly Junior ISA
Only a parent or guardian can take out a Junior ISA on a child's behalf however the Junior ISA belongs to the child and the money is theirs when they turn 18.
Our Junior ISA invests in stocks & shares which gives it access to the growth potential of the stock market. You have a choice of 8 funds from low to high risk.
Anyone can contribute to a Junior ISA: grandparents, friends, and family alike. Another option would be using your own ISA allowance to invest for a child.
