    I have a Lloyds Monthly saver that is fixed for 12 months. This means it comes out of its time next weekend and I don't know where I would be best to put the money I've saved. I do have a junior ISA but I'm not sure if that's the right place.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    If you don't mind putting cash away till your 18 then the junior ISA has the highest interest rate.

    That is a very good point. However, say reached the max junior allowance, then where would I put any excess?

    I think you could drop feed some into a help to buy ISA if you can make the initial deposit or if you earn enough from wages then a value added current account might be possible

    Yes, a Help To Buy was something I was considering, and I'm sure there is something that says you can open 2 ISAs if you're 16-17 because you can have a child's one and an adult one. Am I correct in thinking that?

    Yes that's correct, it's a handy little loophole
