Thomas the Tank Engine has been wheeled in to help promote Aberdeen Unit Trust Managers new children's investment plan.
The 'Thomas & Friends Children's Investment Plan' has been designed for adults wishing to make an investment gift for a young child. Adults can either invest a minimum lump sum of £400 or a minimum £25 per month.
The plan is held in the adult's name until the child reaches 18 when it can be transferred to the child. For every plan taken out, a donation is made to the National Autistic Society.
Adults investing in the plan can choose to invest in a combination of three unit trusts according to their desired risk profile and investment objectives. These are the Aberdeen Sterling Bond Fund, the Aberdeen UK Blue Chip and the Aberdeen Global Champions.
Gary Marshall, managing director of Aberdeen Unit Trust Managers, said: "Most people recognise the importance of saving for a child's future, but many look no further than a bank or building society account. If you consider that Child Benefit allowance is currently £62 a month for the first child, this Plan could be an ideal way to maximise this allowance."
