[Feature Request ๐Ÿ”ง] JISA - Junior ISA ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ’ท

I have mine with Vanguard directly.
0.15% platform fee and then VWRL fee.

Iโ€™m considering closing it and putting the money into my FT ISA as I wonโ€™t use the full allowance most years.

I wouldnโ€™t bet on them or LISAs being able before the end of the NEXT tax year to be honest :frowning:

Have free trade commented on whether they are going to do Junior ISA ? Iโ€™m just about to open a HL one but their fees per trade Arenโ€™t really viable when you want to trade small amounts . Iโ€™d open 2 FT JISA in a heartbeat

@Thesuitceo I canโ€™t remember if FT have said theyโ€™ll definitely do Junior ISA. For now I have JISAs with Interactive Investor (theyโ€™re cheap if you already have an account there), and currently opening Junior SIPPs at Fidelity. Would be happy to transfer them all to FT in future, but weโ€™ll see.

Interested in moving mine over too.

Would be great to hear from Freetrade on this. Itโ€™s clearly a wanted feature and could bring some considerable new users and AUM.

Another financial year, still not a priority I guess.

Hi,

I can see the JISA queries started around 2018, almost 4 years later, why hasnโ€™t Freetrade made this product available? There were talks of roadmaps and plans mentioned on this post back in 2018/19 but it doesnโ€™t look like itโ€™s got any further?

What is the hold up, surely thereโ€™s enough interest, if not, why is it so hard to publish a roadmap, I mean, 4 years isnโ€™t a short amount of time?!?

thanks

I signed up to the forum just to add my vote for this one and keep the momentum going on this thread.

If this could be done by April 2023 Iโ€™d be happy.

Welcome to the community @zmp and congratulations on your new arrival.

If Freetrade could get this sorted by next month it would be great. Thanks!

Welcome, @zmp :wave:

We definitely know how highly requested this is and will do our best to deliver it. I will share an update if and when we have one.

FWIW I would also love to be a Freetrade JISA customer, so Iโ€™ll do the very best I can! :child:

Thanks, but the new arrival was actually a few years ago :smile:
The reason I mentioned April 2023 is nothing quite as exciting, but simply the next tax year end. I opened the FT account to put money away for littlโ€™un, but now Iโ€™ve gotten to know the platform Iโ€™d like to start using the FT ISA for myself before the tax year is up which would mean reallocating his funds to a JISA.
