A baby called India Woodhams, aged just four months, is believed to be the first person in Britain to take out a stakeholder pension.
Proud parents Guy and Amanda from Ealing opened the pension plan on the advice of Guy's father Chris Woodhams, managing director of IFA firm Greig Middleton Financial Services, in London.
Amanda Woodham said: "Following advice and assistance from Chris, we opened a Standard Life pension for India at the earliest opportunity."
Chris Woodhams said: "The introduction of Stakeholder pensions is a defining moment in the way pensions are sold and operated in the UK. Since the changes were first proposed in the Pensions Green Paper back in 1998, there has been firm and consultative action between the government and the industry to drive down charges passed on to the consumer."
Standard Life is thought to have provided the policy.
