Junior ESG

Sustainable Investment (Junior ESG ISA)

Our Junior ESG ISA gives you a way to save in a modern, ethical fund.

We believe in offering a sustainable product that invests in companies striving to have a positive impact on the world.  

The fund prioritises its investments towards companies that show good practice in 3 areas – Environmental, Social and Governance. Because of the size of the funds under management, this is a positive way to influence companies to improve their ESG behaviours.

How does it work?

Each firm is given an ESG score, based on the following factors:

  • Environmental

    Environmental

    issues relating to our planet, such as climate change, carbon footprint, deforestation, resource usage and recycling.

  • Social

    Social

    focuses on companies having the right culture including treating all workers fairly regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation etc.

  • Governance

    Governance

    involves ensuring that companies are run properly, balancing the needs of shareholders, all employees, customers and the local community.

  • Useful Videos

  • What is an ESG Investment?

  • Explaining Corporate Governance

It does not invest in companies whose only activity is coal mining, manufacturers of controversial weapons, or perennial offenders of the UN Global Compact.

Junior ESG ISA Performance Example

Example based on an initial investment of £10,000 on 1st January 2021:

Period Performance 1 Jan Investment 31 Dec Value
1 Jan 2021 to 31 Dec 2021 +24.8% £10,000 £12,482

Please note: This is a risk investment. Past performance is no guide to future returns. You could get back less than you invested.

Things to consider

You will find more information about the Junior ESG ISA in the Key Information Documents and Key Features Document. Below are some important points that we want you to be aware of:

  • The proceeds cannot be accessed until the child is 18, although it can be transferred to another provider at any time. You could get back less than you have invested, particularly if the transfer is in the early years of the Junior ESG ISA commencing.
  • When the child reaches 18, unless the Plan is closed and the funds withdrawn, the Junior ESG ISA will automatically becomes an Adult ESG ISA.
  • There is an annual contribution limit set by the Government for JISAs (in total for Cash JISAs and Stocks and Shares JISAs if someone contributes to both types). This is currently £9,000.
  • This is a medium to long term investment (5 years or more).
  • This is a risk investment. The value of your Junior ESG ISA can go down in value as well as up. You could get back less than you invested.
  • Inflation will have an effect on the future purchasing value of your investment.
  • Tax will have been paid in the underlying fund. HMRC could change the tax status of ISAs in the future.
