3 Funds for Your Junior ISA

Looking for a financial gift for your child or grandchild? Take advantage of the long term investment horizon of a Junior ISA and go for a strategy which offers risk and reward

This article is part of Morningstar's Guide to Financial Christmas Gifts. As you consider whether your friends and family have been naughty or nice we'll be revealing all you need to know about financial gifts for Christmas.

This Christmas, ignore the plastic tat and get the children in your family a gift that will really last a life time – an investment for their Junior ISA.

Unlike the adult Isa, JISA investments cannot be cashed in at any time, the child must reach 18 before they have access to their savings, so this is a great opportunity to take bets on riskier sectors such as emerging markets or smaller companies. If you choose a highly rated manager these types of funds may be volatile, but over the long term should outperform more staid investments such as gilts.
