Yes, they will provide you with a form to fill in and they will do the rest
I have a JISA open with another provider. Is it easy to switch?
Better with a stocks and share ISA this rate is just above inflation so in 5 years in real terms you have made next to nothing
Good point and very true. Also worth remembering that with a cash isa you are currently guaranteed to get less at the end of the current year when you account for inflation. (Not disagreeing with you though) I think it’s interesting when even with a guaranteed investment period of 18 years, some of my friends with newborns haven’t considered stocks and shares. There are definite risks, but to not consider them when the investment period is so long is not a good idea. Another point to consider is that you can’t access a junior isa unless your child dies or has a terminal illness. The child can access the funds when they turn 18 (legally they can, you can’t). Therefore, if you aren’t currently filling your own isa allowance, plus spouses isa allowance if applicable.... you may be better off using these allowances first. You can still save for your child’s future. But if you need the money you can access it.
Please remember the value of investments can go down as well as up, so you might get back less than you invest with stocks and shares.
