Funds are one of the most popular Junior ISA investments. A fund is a collection of investments, chosen and run by a fund manager. Each fund manager has an objective, for example to grow your capital, or provide a decent income. When you invest in a fund, you’re buying a slice of the fund’s investments.

Our Wealth Shortlist contains funds selected by our analysts. We put funds under the microscope to make sure the list only contains the funds that our in-depth analysis indicates have the greatest long-term performance potential. It’s designed to help investors build and maintain well-balanced and diversified portfolios.

For some inspiration on where to invest your Junior ISA, the Wealth Shortlist could be a good place to start. But remember that as with all investments, funds can fall as well as rise in value, so your child could get less than you invest. Investors should only invest if the fund’s objectives are aligned with their own, and there’s a specific need for the type of investment being made.
