Important information - please keep in mind that the value of investments can go down as well as up so you may get back less than you invest. The value of tax savings and eligibility to invest in a Junior ISA depend on personal circumstances. All tax rules may change in future. Withdrawals from a Junior ISA will not be possible until the child reaches age 18. This information is not a personal recommendation for any particular investment.

Invest for your child’s future
A Junior Stocks and Shares ISA account (JISA) is a tax-efficient way to save for your child’s future as you pay no income tax or capital gains tax on your investments. The Junior ISA allowance for the 2020/21 tax year is £9,000, and you have until 5 April 2021 to use it. Once your child reaches 18, they can access the money in their Junior ISA. Fidelity doesn’t charge service fees on Junior ISAs, giving you the ability to put a little bit extra into your Child’s ISA account if you wish. Ongoing fund charges and other fees may apply.
