Important information - please remember that the value of investments, and any income from them, can fall as well as rise so your child could get back less than is invested. If you are unsure of the suitability of an investment please seek personal advice. Tax rules can change and the value of any benefits depends on individual circumstances.

Transferring existing Junior ISAs to our Vantage Junior Stocks & Shares ISA could provide greater choice and flexibility, and the potential for greater returns - so you can help your little ones make the most of their big ideas.

How to transfer - it's as easy as 1-2-3

  1. To ensure you're confident with any decisions you’re making, first read the Key Features and Terms & Conditions including our Tariff of Charges.
  2. Download and complete our one-page transfer form (only the registered contact on the existing Junior ISA can request the transfer).
  3. Return it to us at Freepost HARGREAVES LANSDOWN.
    That's it. We'll look after the rest of the transfer, and we'll also contact the current provider in the event of any delays.

We don't charge to transfer to us, although you should check whether the current provider imposes any exit fees.

Before transferring...

If transferring an existing Junior Stocks & Shares ISA, ensure you understand how the transfer will be made. Some providers don't allow stock transfers, where the account remains invested.

Transferring as cash means any existing investments will be sold, and your child will be out of the market for a period - this may work in their favour if the market falls, but if it rises they won't benefit from any growth while cash is held. More information can be found on the transfer form.
