Child Trust Fund to Junior ISA transfer factsheet

Child Trust Funds and Junior ISAs - how do they compare?

Over six million children had a CTF opened on their behalf by a parent, guardian or the government. On 6 April 2015, it became possible to transfer Child Trust Funds (CTFs) to Junior ISAs. Thousands of parents have already made the switch, but those who haven’t may wonder if there is any benefit to transferring.

In this concise, 2-page factsheet that is not personal advice, we:

  • Give a brief history of Child Trust Funds and Junior ISAs
  • Compare a typical Stakeholder CTF with our own Junior ISA
  • Answer some of the most common questions we’re asked about transferring a CTF to a Junior ISA
