Your child’s investments

All money paid in will be invested in our ES Share Centre Multi Manager Growth & Income Fund, which contains a range of funds from well-known providers. This enables you to benefit from their expertise and spread risk by diversifying across different markets and sectors.

Ready-made Junior ISA costs

The annual management charge and ongoing charge (see links above) for your child’s fund are taken from the fund itself, so you don’t need to worry about paying them separately. There are no account fees, dealing fees, or initial fund charges to pay.

Statements & contract notes by post rather than email £2.40 per month
Transfer to another provider Free
Bounced cheque or unpaid Direct Debit £25
Deceased customer account administration £50
Overdue fee charge - Sell stock (per investment) £7.50 (To recover overdue fees on your account we may need to divest the equivalent value of your investments, plus this additional charge to cover the cost of the trade)

Costs and charges illustration

To give you a feel for the costs involved, our cost sheet includes an illustration of costs you will pay, based on how much you invest and what type of investments you choose.

Payment of charges

Ongoing fund charges are automatically taken from your fund. If you opt for postal statements & contract notes, the fee will be collected from your account on the 26th of each month, or the next business day.

What interest will be paid on cash?

Gross interest on any cash you hold will be credited to your account quarterly at the Bank of Scotland base rate, minus 3.5% (min. 0%). We may retain the difference between the interest paid to you and the interest we are able to earn, as permitted by The Financial Conduct Authority.
