Putting money aside for your children

While investing money for your children may be something beyond the reach of many people in the current economic climate, it is something which many people will consider in more prosperous economic times. So what's the best way to invest money for your child's future?

The simple truth is there is no one savings vehicle which suits every purpose and every requirement of both parents and children in the future. If you are risk averse then simply putting aside a set amount of money each month into a savings account for your children may be sensible, although if you're looking longer-term and willing to take a risk on the worldwide investment markets then perhaps some form of collective investment vehicles could be the way forward.

However, before you look to invest money on behalf of your children you should take professional financial advice so that you are fully aware of the risks, the potential rewards and the tax situation. There are ways and means of investing for your children in a highly effective manner with regards to taxation and indeed the number of investment vehicles on the market today takes in every degree of risk and potential return you could think of.
