a head start
Give your children a great start in life, and help them achieve their hopes and dreams.
Our Junior ISA is a savings initiative designed to allow adults to save on behalf of a child, and is available to those without a Child Trust Fund. A lump sum pay-out when they reach 18 can open up a range of opportunities from helping with university fees, a gap year, or a car.
Clear, simple savings with a Forester Life Junior ISA
Foresters is a mutual organisation, looking after their members for over 140 years.
Our Junior ISA is designed to be a straightforward and flexible way to invest for your child’s future. Not only do we offer you our experience, financial strength and reliability, we also offer the expertise of Schroders – one of the world’s leading independent investment managers.
Your savings will be balanced between stocks and shares and fixed interest holdings by the experienced fund management team at Schroders, giving the potential for a good balanced return. Don’t forget that the value can fall as well as rise. So, whether you want to transfer your existing Junior ISA, set up a new one or even transfer a Child Trust Fund to us, we could be the choice for you.
If your child doesn’t need the money when they reach 18, the plan will automatically roll over into an Adult ISA.
Features of our Junior ISA include:
- Professionally managed by Schroders – Your savings are balanced between stocks and shares and fixed interest holdings by the experienced fund management team at Schroders.
- Flexible – It’s up to you. Save as little as £10 a month, make single contributions – or both; up to £4,128 this financial year.
- Clear, low capped charges – Unlike some other providers, we don’t charge entry, exit or transfer fees.
- Manage your account online – View and add contributions at any time. Your family and friends can also contribute – it makes a great gift.
- Keeping up with inflation – We can automatically increase the amount of your regular savings each year to help your contributions keep pace with inflation
Professionally Managed by Schroders
Your Junior ISA will be invested in our Forester Life Stakeholder Managed Funds, which is actively managed by the expert fund managers at Schroders.
Schroders is an independent, dedicated asset manager with a strong heritage. It is one of the largest investment firms in Europe and has over 200 years’ experience of investment markets.
The graph below shows how your Junior ISA would grow if you transferred an account with the value of £3,600 to our Stakeholder Managed Fund 1 for five years from June 2012, which has a 1.5% annual management charge.
Despite volatility within the stock market and uncertainty as a result of the EU referendum, the fund, where our Junior ISA is invested in has grown by 6% this year as a result of diversification.
Past performance of an investment should not be used as an indicator to future performance.
