Our Junior ISA is a savings initiative designed to allow adults to save on behalf of a child, and is available to those without a Child Trust Fund (CTF). A lump sum pay-out when they reach 18 could open up a range of opportunities from helping with university fees, a gap year, or a car.Find out more and Apply

Take a look at the illustrations below to get an estimated fund value so you can see what could be available in the future.
The table indicates what monthly or single contributions could be worth in years to come, assuming an annual investment growth rate of 5% and an annual management charge of 1% (0% in year 1). Automatic increases in monthly payments of 2.5% per annum to keep pace with inflation are also assumed, where possible.
|Monthly Amount||Final Monthly amount (after automatic increases)||Value after 18 years|
|Single Amount||Fund Value After 18 years|
*The Government has announced that the maximum Junior ISA limit will rise in line with the Consumer Price Index, assumed to increase by 2% pa.
The Forester Life Junior ISA is a stakeholder account and as such meets the standard for capped charges. Every year we send a statement showing the value of the plan.
- These figures are only examples and are not guaranteed. The actual value could be more or less than shown, and could be less than has been paid in. What you will get back depends on how much the investment grows and on the tax treatment of the investment.
- Inflation would reduce what you could buy in the future.
- These illustrated figures should be studied in conjunction with the Key Features of the Forester Life Junior ISA.
- These figures assume contributions and investment over 18 years. Top-ups to existing plans will be invested for a shorter period depending on the age of the child at the time.
- All payments are locked into the Plan until the child’s 18th birthday and cannot be reclaimed by the donor(s).
