Investing for Children

The amounts invested for children tend to be smaller and to keep the cost of advice down when investing smaller amounts of money, we offer some investment products on a non-advised basis.

This means that we have selected a limited number of tax wrappers that are available to invest for children on a simple online technology platform, that will allow you to invest in a quality portfolio of funds managed by one of the UKs top discretionary fund managers.

You can choose the level or risk and investments are managed by Quilter Cheviot without having to pay an initial advice fee and you can invest as little as £1.

The tax wrappers that are available for children are:

  • JISA – Junior Individual Savings Account
  • SIPP – Junior Self Invested Personal Pensions

This service is best suited to those investing less than £500 monthly and / or a total invested sum under £20,000 who are not paying for our full ongoing service (which includes the advice costs of establishing Junior ISAs and SIPPs).
