Add another My Choice policy to their Junior ISA.

Provided by a five-time award winning Junior ISA Provider.

Saving super power potential that could help the child you dote on when they start out in adult life.

Capital at risk.

monthly payment

Add a policy to the child's Junior ISA from just £10 a month and / or a £50 lump sum.

add policy

Add as many policies as you like as long as you stay within the child's annual £9,000 Junior ISA allowance.


Give your policy a name to help you keep track, for example 'Car fund' or ‘Gift from Granny'.

Keep in mind that stock market investments can go down as well as up, so your child could get back less than you've paid in. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and tax rules could change in the future. The funds in a Junior ISA belong to the child and can only be accessed by them when they turn 18.

9 investment fund choices

Add a My Choice policy to their Junior ISA and:

  • We'll put their money into a My Choice investment policy within their Scottish Friendly Junior ISA.

  • The policy then invests in the fund(s) already chosen for them by their parent or guardian. As the money you invest belongs to the child, they will be able to access it without paying any tax on any money they withdraw when they turn 18.

Scottish Friendly doesn’t provide advice. The information provided should help you decide if the plan is suitable for you. If you’re not sure whether this plan is suitable, you should contact a financial adviser. Advisers may charge for providing such advice and should confirm any cost beforehand.

To apply to add a policy to this Junior ISA, your child must be under 18, not have qualified for a Child Trust Fund, and be a UK resident. You can subscribe to only one Stocks & Shares Junior ISA each tax year for your child. For the current tax year, the overall maximum you can save in both their Junior ISA types is £9,000. Once invested, the money belongs to the child and can only be accessed by them once they turn 18. Whilst your investment may be locked away on your child’s behalf for up to 18 years (depending on the age of your child when you set up their Scottish Friendly Junior ISA) you should be thinking of investing over at least five years. Their investment will grow free from tax, except for any tax we pay on their behalf (such as on dividends from UK shares). Tax treatment will depend on individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. Stock market investments can go down as well as up and your child may get back less than you’ve paid in.
