How are charges paid?
There’s no need to remember to make any payments – we’ll automatically take our charges each month. You’ll need to keep cash in your account to pay any charges – there is a suggested minimum cash balance based on the size of your child's Junior SIPP, but you can hold as much cash as you like.
What happens if there’s not enough cash to pay charges?
If you don’t have enough cash in your account to cover charges, we’ll first try to collect charges using any loyalty bonuses you received on investments you bought before 1 April 2014.
After that, we’d take charges using any cash in your Fund & Share account, if you have one. As a final resort, we’d sell holdings in your child's Junior SIPP to cover any charges and restore the suggested minimum cash balance. There is no additional charge for this. We will normally sell units of your largest fund holding first.
How much interest does the cash in my child's Junior SIPP earn?
It’s important to keep some cash available in your child's Junior SIPP for paying charges and you can also hold cash while you decide where to invest.
See our cash interest rates page for details.
The charges above don’t include the cost of any advice you might need. If you need financial advice, our adviser would agree this cost with you separately.
