Transfer an existing Junior ISA (JISA) or Child Trust Fund (CTF) to our Junior Stocks & Shares ISA and you could benefit from greater choice and flexibility and the potential for greater returns.

To find out where your child's CTF is held, you can visit the HMRC website.

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 or Child Trust Fund 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.

Why transfer to Hargreaves Lansdown?

  • Greater freedom - invest in a way that fits your busy life. Choose from ready-made portfolios or a wide range of funds, shares and other investments to suit your attitude to risk. See our Junior ISA investment ideas.

  • Greater accessibility - manage your child's account online or via our award-winning app while you're on the move. Also see all of your family's accounts in one place, with our Linked Accounts feature.

  • Greater flexibility – set up regular savings from £25 per month, or make lump sum contributions as and when it suits. Friends and family can also easily contribute online.

Before transferring...

Ensure you understand how the transfer will be made – whether as cash or stock, where the account remains invested. It's particularly common among CTF providers not to allow stock transfers.

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.
