What happens when my child turns 18?

When your child turns 18, their Junior Stocks & Shares ISA will turn into an adult Stocks and Shares ISA. This will be in the control of your child and they are able to withdraw their funds at any point in time they choose. 

To give access over to your child, contact support and we will be able to set them up with access to their very own tickr Stocks & Shares ISA!

How much does it cost?

We charge a simple and affordable £1 a month fee on balances below £3,000. When your JISA balance exceeds this, you will also pay 0.30% on the portion of your investment above £3,000. 

For example, if the JISA holds £5,000 in your account for 12 months, you would pay £1.42 a month for the investment platform. External fund fees ranging from 0.24-0.49% also apply.
