Ed Monk - Fidelity Personal Investing

This week, we’re focusing on saving and investing for children. Giving your offspring a financial head-start in life is a common aim for parents but the choice of where and how to do that can be confusing.

We hope we can arm you with all the knowledge you’ll need - and give you some encouragement along the way to build not only savings for you child - but a savings habit that will support them all the way through their life.

Important information: The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invest. Investors should note that the views expressed may no longer be current and may have already been acted upon. Overseas investments will be affected by movements in currency exchange rates. Investments in emerging markets can be more volatile than other more developed markets. Reference to specific securities should not be construed as a recommendation to buy or sell these securities and is included for the purposes of illustration only. This information is not a personal recommendation for any particular investment. If you are unsure about the suitability of an investment you should speak to an authorised financial adviser.
