A Child Trust Fund account belongs to your child and any money you pay into the account is a gift to them.
The value of investments (and any income received from them) can fall as well as rise and you may not get back what you invested. For some investments this can also happen as a result of exchange rate fluctuations as shares and funds may have an exposure to overseas markets.
The value of the tax benefits described in the key features document will depend on individual circumstances. Tax rules could change.
Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
