Investment options

There are many popular savings products that are specifically geared toward children, which usually mean that they are tax-free and geared toward long-term savings of 18 years.

Stocks and shares Junior ISAs involve more risk because you could get back less money than you invested, depending on how those investment perform. However, stocks and shares usually tend to outperform cash savings, particularly in the current climate of low interest rates. As the Bank of England shows no signs of rising the base interest rate – currently at a record low of 0.5% — it may be best to choose funds rather than cash savings, if your grandchild has a decade or more until they turn 18.


Investments for older children are a different story, as a bad market turn could wipe out their investments with little time to recover before they need the money for university fees. Cash is usually a safer option, especially if your grandchild is approaching their A-levels.

Children’s SIPPs, or self-invested personal pensions, are also an option, though many people think it’s too early to start saving towards their grandchild’s pension. Of course, it’s never too early to start saving, and anyone looking to make their grandchild’s financial road easier would do well to consider this type of investment. Figures show that a relatively small contribution of £2,800 each year, for the first 18 years of a child’s life, could see them retiring a millionaire. This could help protect the next generation of children who are entering a workforce where generous pensions, once the norm, are a rare sight.
