I've tried reading through other threads on this and came up none the wiser really.
I'm looking at setting up an investment fund for my yet-to-be-born child, arriving early 2020. I don't need/want the account in her name, just a way to save money for her parents to have to help with college or whatever she decides to do as an adult.
Only looking for something very small to tick away in the background. 100 a month for 17 years is 20 grand if I just stuck it in a bank or credit union, but the value of that money would be decreasing steadily. Would rather put it in an investment fund, make a few % growth on it. If I got 3% per annum my 20K becomes 26K.
Any tips, ideas? Something passive, lowest fees possible obviously, just want to transfer my 100 a month and forget about it, possibly increase it in time.
