    The value of your investments can go down as well as up, and you may not get back what you originally invested.

  • Why investing for children is important

    Whether you’re a relative, parent, grandparent or a friend, investing for a child’s future is one of the most important things you can do.

    • Help your child(ren) get a financial head start - university fees, house deposit or a wedding can all be big expenses. With the average cost of university being £9,000 a year and the average UK wedding costing around £27,000, being able to help your child with these expenses could be invaluable.
    • Time is on your side - Time can help smooth out any short-term fluctuations stock markets inevitably have along the way and over the long term even small amounts can add up to a nice savings pot. Setting up monthly payments could have a big impact on your investment in the long term. The advantage of investing regularly is that it can remove the worry about trying to ‘time the market’ – even the experts don’t always get that right.
