How Does a Trust Fund Work?
By investigating how the CTF (Child Trust Fund) works in the UK (United Kingdom), we can gain a better understanding of how trust funds work.
The CTF trust fund is an account created for investing and saving. It has been set up to help children on their road to becoming adults. As soon as a child turns 18 they would have the right to access the funds in their account. If your child was born after the 1st September 2002 they can receive a voucher worth £250 to set up a trust fund of their own.
Their are several types of trust funds available for children, including accounts that facilitates the investment in shares, stakeholder accounts and child trust fund savings accounts. The money in a trust fund savings account is setup so that the money earned in the account is accrued from interest. The stakeholder account is an account that is invested in any number of shares in companies, all in accordance with government rulings. Accounts that are set up to invest in stocks are for guardians who are aware of the risk/reward factors involved. Some banks offer a designated stock manager to advise and manage this type of account.
