How can I manage my Child's Trust Fund?

A Child Trust Fund is held in a minor’s name and the security checks you would need to complete for account specific queries are that of the minor e.g. their full name, date of birth and address. Selftrade can only provide account information to the registered contact.
Once security checks have been completed by the registered contact, they can receive account information, add money to the account, change contact information and trade.
Selftrade offer a Stakeholder and Non-Stakeholder Child Trust Fund account. If you wish to change the type of Child Trust Fund account your child has, this can be requested via secure message (when logged into the CTF account), telephone or written instruction.
Please note – to change the Registered Contact on a Child Trust Fund Account, you would need to complete the 'Change of Registered Contact Form' and return to the address quoted on the form.
