Tracking down £1bn of missing Child Trust Fund cash
Every child in the UK born between 1 Sept 2002 and 2 Jan 2011 has a Child Trust Fund (CTF). But one child in six has lost contact with the money. Gavin Oldham, chairman of financial services group The Share Centre is trying to connect them back up. He talks through the CTF, how to track an account down, and what a child can and can’t do with the money.
