Newcastle Big Little Junior ISA


Junior ISAs were introduced late 2011 and are available to any child who was not eligible for a Child Trust Fund. You can use them to build a nest-egg for your children which will be given to them once they turn 18.

You may already be saving for your children's future, but if the amount a parent invests means that the child receives more than £100 interest a year, then this interest begins to attract income tax. With a Junior Cash ISA, all the interest earned is tax-free - meaning more for the little one when they're a not-so-little one!

Including Bonus 2.10% GROSS/AER*
Excluding Bonus 1.10% GROSS/AER*
