Child Trust Fund
Every child born in the UK between 1 September 2002 and 3 January 2011 was issued with a Child Trust Fund voucher. We’re owned and run by our members, so only the child will benefit from any money you invest. We offer two kinds of funds.
Our stakeholder Child Trust Fund meets all the government’s criteria for this kind of fund. It invests in a wide range of stocks and shares to minimise the risk of one share or industry underperforming.
Because it’s a stakeholder Child Trust Fund doesn’t necessarily mean that the investment is suitable for your child or that performance is guaranteed.
With this fund, we make sure that none of your child’s money is directly invested in the alcohol, arms and tobacco industries and gambling and pornography providers.
It’s not a stakeholder fund and invests in everything from stocks and shares to government and corporate bonds and bank deposits. Again, investment performance isn’t guaranteed.
