I have an ISA with Investec Click and Invest which is closing down, and I have to find somewhere else to invest the money. Which are some providers of a similar nature? I am considering either medium risk or high risk accounts.

I have been putting £50/month for each of my two children into a pension with Hargreaves Lansdown. In light of the costs of investing highlighted on this website, should I move to somewhere with lower charges, or stay-put? Alternatively, would I be better to put money into a Lifetime ISA for each of them instead?
