You’ll be aware that the coalition Government has decided to close the Child Trust Fund (CTF) from early 2011, but if you are still in possession of a CTF voucher and haven’t yet opened a plan, you can still do so if you act fast!
Use your voucher to open a Shepherds CTF Plan before the end of this year and you will be able to go on making payments into this for many years to come. Parents who have already opened a CTF plan with us can continue to invest in this until the child reaches the age of 18.
We all know savings for our children’s future is important. So don’t forget that, besides the CTF Plan, Shepherds also offer the Junior Moneymaker and Young Saver Plan that provide TAX-EXEMPT savings and a TAX-FREE lump sum at age 18.
