Child Trust Funds (CTFs)

A Child Trust Fund (CTF)  is a savings and investment account for children born on or after the 1st September 2002 and on or before the 31st December 2010.

We offer two types of CTF, a Non-stakeholder CTF and a Stakeholder CTF.

CTF LogoPilling & Co offer both types of CTF, the Non-stakeholder CTF allows the registered person (the person with parental responsibility for the child) to make the investment decisions for the funds in the CTF whilst the Stakeholder CTF is run on a discretionary management basis by Pilling & Co. The qualifying investments in a Non-stakeholder CTF are more wide ranging and the charges are different from those of a stakeholder CTF.

Family, friends, local authorities and charities can contribute up to £9,000 (tax year 2020/2021) each year to the fund. Each subscription year starts on the child’s birthday and ends the day before the child’s next birthday. Immediately after the child’s birthday another £9,000 in the current tax year can be contributed and so on in subsequent years between the child’s birthdays up to the age of 18.

Key Child Trust Fund (CTF) features include:

  • Choice of Non-stakeholder or Stakeholder CTF
  • Discretionary management of stakeholder CTF
  • Discretionary or investment managed of Non-stakeholder CTF
  • Low administration fees
  • Minimum commission only £10 on Non-stakeholder CTF
  • Free transfers from other managers
  • Invest up to £9,000 per year
