TISA: CTF and JISA consultation offers a pragmatic solution

March 20, 2013

Responding to the Budget announcement that the Government is to consult on the transfer of Child Trust Funds to Junior ISAs, Tony Vine-Lott, the TISA Director General said:

“Allowing the voluntary transfer from a CTF to a JISA for those who choose to do so is a pragmatic and practical solution. The consultation will address concerns about stakeholder protection and allow all the issues surrounding the administration of parallel schemes and the remaining CTF accounts to be explored by Government, industry and consumer groups.”
