Junior ISA transfer

Start saving for a child’s future by investing in a Stocks and Shares Junior ISA on their behalf.

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. Eligibility to invest in a Junior ISA and tax treatment depends on personal circumstances and all tax rules may change in the 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. If you are unsure about the suitability of an investment you should speak to one of Fidelity’s advisers or an authorised financial adviser of your choice.

Why transfer to Fidelity

We keep things simple

Once instructed, we’ll contact the provider to arrange the transfer for you. If we offer the same investments, we’ll move them as they are. If we offer the same investments but in a different share class, we'll ask the provider to convert these into our common share class and then transfer them.

Offering a wealth of choice

Once the transfer is complete, you can choose to keep the same investments or buy new ones. We have thousands of funds and exchange-traded instruments such as shares and investment trusts to help you reach your financial goals.

A cost-effective option

We have negotiated discounted ongoing charges on hundreds of funds on our platform and we don’t charge a service fee on investments held in junior accounts.

Covering exit fees for you

We will reimburse any exit/redemption fees your existing provider may charge, up to £500 per person.

Important information - If we have a different share class of the same investment, we’ll work with the current provider to convert them into the share class we offer, and then move them onto our platform. Your child’s investments won’t be out of the market during this time, but the units in the new share class may vary as the prices of different share classes of the same fund are usually different.

Please note, once the transfer is complete, we may have an even cheaper share class available - in this case we’ll trigger an automatic conversion once available.

If we don’t have the same share class of the investment - or an alternative share class - available on the platform, we’ll ask your current provider to sell the investments and move the proceeds into the Fidelity Junior ISA as cash to keep the tax benefits. In such a case, your child’s investments will be out of the market until you decide to invest that cash on our platform in different fund options and exchange-traded investments, such as shares and investment trusts. This means your child could miss out on growth and income if the market rises during this time.
