Opportunities are Infinite
Early adulthood expenses include university costs, job loss/ security, buying a house, or becoming a parent, where low earnings at the start of a job may not provide the excess money to invest in such areas.
There are many options where one can put money to meet adulthood expenses. Jisa provides a good option to help students go to universities where the funds saved since childhood can be accessed when the child turns 18. No tax is applicable on capital growth or dividends on the money held.
Jisa can be bought by the guardian, parents, or grandparents, and there are two ways to invest: in stocks and shares or cash Isa. Some types are based on peer-to-peer investing, and some are lifetime options for buying a house or retirement savings.
One can invest £4,000 in lifetime ISA, which can be saved for the first home and used within the overall limit of £20,000. Investment can be made in both categories, while the current allowance has been increased from £4,260 to £4,368, and it cannot be carried to the next year.
For more than ten years, long-term investments can be made in stocks and shares with a record of delivering higher returns, but it is best to take advice from expert financial planners.
In the current scenario, an investment for 18 years of Jisa allowance of £4,368 every year can provide a growth rate of 4 per cent after deducting the fees, and such funds can grow to over £150,000.
If the guardian is concerned about the child's overspending behaviour as they turn 18, they can restrict how the money is spent and retain control over it.
Most customized investment options like ETFs, investment trusts, and others come with fund management fees. Different terms and conditions are applicable for each provider and each option, where the minimum amount limit is set to get cashback, which can be paid within 3 to 4 months of opening the account.
But such offers may not be guaranteed, while, in some cases, it has been found that the affiliate links do not work or the retailer does not pay the cashback.
Some parents who want to save a huge amount for their children and grandchildren set up trusts involving a high estate planning cost. The investment can be made into- bare or discretionary, where the money can be accessed only through the trustee.
The plan allows the guardian to have greater control over savings. Bare is useful for the child's expenses, which come before the age of 18, but it is not tax-free, and the child legally owning the income is liable to pay tax.
Some guardians save money in pension funds to help children and grandchildren, which provide long-term tax benefits and some government tax reliefs where the control of the pension goes to the child as they turn 18. At the same time, the investors can access the account only when they turn 55 (which will be changed to 57 from 2028).
