What is your Kingston Unity Junior ISA?

A Stocks & Shares ISA

Our Junior ISA is a Stocks and Shares ISA, where your child’s savings will be invested in our With Profits fund. Past performance is not a guide to future performance, bonuses are not guaranteed, but once a bonus is added to your account, it cannot be removed.

Tax-Efficient Saving from £5 a Month

You can save up to £9,000 for your child, tax-free in the 2020/21 tax year. Save regular payments from £5 a month or add one-off payments from £10. Give friends and family the option to add gifts to the account via a secure, shareable link.

A Friendly Alternative to Banks

We’re a mutual which means we operate solely for the benefit of our Members and not for shareholder profit. We’ve helped hundreds of thousands of our Members, their children and their grandchildren, to make more of their money since 1840.
