    Child Trust Fund dilemma for Ex-pats 11th Jan 18 at 1:08 AM
    My two children have Child Trust Funds with Furness Building Society in the UK. We emigrated to Alberta, Canada in 2014. Our problem is that the UK accounts are now defunct and the money is just sat there doing diddly squat, and we cannot move the money into Junior ISAs as we no longer live in the UK. I would really like to move the money into Trust accounts in Canada, as we will overcome further issues this way, PLUS have access to more favourable interest rates. I am at a loss as to how to go about this, and of course, the UK building society are not being at all forthcoming.
