    Child Pension Advice 8th Sep 17 at 7:14 AM
    Good Morning!

    I'm after advice on setting up a pension for my newborn. I can't really find any info on what is classed as a good scheme. I do already have a virgin child pension set up for my daughter but as for performance wise, I'm non the wiser! any help would be greatly appreciated.
    thank you!

    Virgin stakeholder is just about one of the worst stakeholders on the market. Although there isn't that many stakeholders left nowadays. However, its almost double the cost of others and has an extremely poor fund choice.

    You could have a look at cavendish online, they are a small firm that offer access to a range of pensions.

    For a small fee they allow,you to use the personal pension of a range of big insurers, their default funds should be fairly cheap (<0.5%) and do a decent job for small to medium amounts.
