Start with a minimum lump sum of £250, which you can then top up with payments of £50 as and when you wish.
Pay regularly by investing as little as £30 a month by Direct Debit. You'll still be free to add lump sum payments at any time.
You can open plans for as many children as you want. There's no upper limit on the amount that can be invested, so friends, family or godparents can chip in too.
As with all stockmarket-based investments you should regard the Children's Unit Trust as a medium to long-term investment. Because it invests in shares, the value of the account can go down as well as up, so the child may get back less than was paid in.
