Question by Anisha

Hi,

I'm 36 and have a 10 month old baby and am now thinking about investing for my baby's future.

I'm planning to open a Junior stocks and shares ISA in Vanguard's Life Strategy but understand that I will be limited to Vanguard's own funds; is this a disadvantage?

Would you recommend looking at other platforms for example Nutmeg?

Thanks,

Anisha.

Hi Anisha

Congratulations on wanting to start saving! And to use a really cheap and accessible account like that available from Vanguard is a brilliant idea too!

The Vanguard fund range is highly diverse and enables you to capture returns from global stock markets.

They also have an ESG version, which means you can also save and help the planet in the process.

Was a church pastor for a number of years! Love how a good Financial planner can make sense of money and take the worry and stress away from people so they can concentrate on what is truly important for them.
