A Guide to Investing for Children

As seen on FT.com   With the Child Trust Fund no longer available to babies born since the start of the year - even children haven't avoided the Age of Austerity - parents looking to save for their children don't have many options at the moment.  A "Junior ISA" has been promised, but isn't expected until later in 2011.  Yet the Child Trust Fund had its limitations...

Reaction to Budget 2010

Alastair Darling today announced his last Budget before the next general election.  As a result, it was expected to be high on political rhetoric - and it didn't disappoint.  However, at the same time it was low on new measures - which was rather disappointing.   The key points for our Private Clients are outlined below, with some of our initial thoughts.   Overall, the main winners were first-time...
