It’s easy to transfer your child’s CTF into an M&G Junior ISA. Just follow these three simple steps to discover the long-term potential of an investment with M&G.

If you would like to know more about CTF transfers and details on the recent changes in regulation, take a look at some key questions and answers. The value and income from the fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.

Step 2: read the relevant Key Investor Information Document (KIID), Costs and charges illustration and the Important Information for Investors document (III)

The KIID contains key investor information about a fund, including details about the fund’s different share classes. The Costs and charges illustration contains information on the costs and charges applicable to your chosen share classes as well as the impact of such costs on your investment return.

The III document contains details about how to invest, together with M&G's Terms and Conditions and your rights as an investor.

Step 3: complete and return the Child Trust Fund transfer application form

Send your completed CTF transfer application form to us at: 

M&G Investments
PO Box 9039
CM99 2XG

Once we have received your completed CTF transfer application form we will contact your previous Investment Manager on your behalf to request the sale of your CTF holding. We usually expect to receive the transfer proceeds within 30 days, after which time we will issue a Welcome Pack relating to your investment with us. Your existing CTF provider may make a charge for carrying out the transfer. We carry out all the paperwork to transfer your CTF to M&G free of charge. Whilst your investment is being transferred it will be out of the market for a short period of time and will not lose or gain in value. Junior ISA tax rules may change in the future and Junior ISA tax advantages depend on your individual circumstances.
