All of our investment plans involve a level of risk and the value of your investments can go down as well as up. The level of risk will depend upon the underlying investments that you choose to hold in the plans. You need to be comfortable that you may not get back the original amount invested. Tax allowances and the benefits of tax-efficient accounts are subject to change and tax treatment depends upon your individual circumstances. *Please note a new CTF cannot be opened, however you can transfer an existing Child Trust Fund to a CT Child Trust Fund or a CT Junior ISA.
