My youngest just turned 8 a couple of weeks ago. Her trust fund was started off adn had £250 put in it by the goyernment.
7 years or so later it's worth £263
Thats why I haven't put any money in it as I make more keeping it elsewhere
I can't cash it in or change it So when my little un becomes 21 she will get about £300

basically, you're telling me that these financial products are crap, better investing in something else...

Is there anything giving back 3-4% (or more)?

thanks

Some cash ISA's (Lloyds TSB I noted today, others are available!) are offering around the 3.5-4% mark, tied-in for 2 years. Exact rate depends on how much you invest :wink:

Try Investec, 6% at the moment.
It's for real, just had an investment mature with them @ 6% :D :D
