    Finding a 'bare trust' for my grandchild 6th Aug 18 at 6:42 PM
    I want to invest some money for my grandchild that I will keep the book for an receive mailshots rather than the parents, who have just split up. I don't want my grandchild to be able to access it until she is at least 18. Ive read that 'bare trusts' are the answer but where can I find these please, does anyone know?

    Do you mean "invest" or "save"?

    If invest, you will hold the investments in bare trust.

    Example - see page 7 and note that you would complete a bare trust application form.

    Or you could choose your own investments within a Junior Investment account


    If you mean a savings account

    A "bare trust" is essentially a wrapper: you could ask a solicitor to set one up for you, or download the necessary forms. Then you choose the investments/savings account and pay in the money.
