If my child already has a Child Trust Fund, can I also open a Junior ISA for them?
No, your child can’t have both a Child Trust Fund and a Junior ISA. However, if your child already has a Child Trust Fund, you can transfer the funds over to open a Junior ISA.
To transfer a Child Trust Fund, you must be the Registered Contact on the account. Once you have made the transfer into a Junior ISA you cannot transfer back into a Child Trust Fund. Before making a decision to transfer, you should check if the current Child Trust Fund provider will charge a fee.
