What Is The Best Investment Option For Children Education. by Jochebed7(f): 6:52pm On Apr 19, 2013
please i need ideas on how best to handle cash meant for children's education. I have the bulk sum for their university education on hand but it seems like a bad idea to leave it sitting in a savings acct. Whatt investment options do i have where the money cant be lost? Also d kids are in school presently so i need to be able to have access to the money or dividends at least every three months.

Get hold of treasury bills or invest the fund in landed properties.

You can also buy gold with them, gold mostly appreciates.

Buy children education policy from a good insurance company with good partial maturity plans that can help u have access to fund without touching ur normal income to continue their schooling and total maturity when they eventually gain university admission.

Avoid insurance policies for children.

Get them into blue chip stocks and dividend reinvestment.

You can also invest in something you know . . like Disney,Heinz,Walmart,Merck etc
and let it sit. My mother-in-law started a UTMA acct for my daughter and she cannot
cash them until she's 21.

Best investment for children? Be there for your children and to stay with their
Dad/Mom, speaking from experience. It's waaaay better.

Buy them properties, see if u can get rent from it.
Recently I handled a job for my boss. He had built a hostel accomodation in my town and grouped it for his four kids. He asked we paid the rent to the childrens account. I will emmulate this when I get married.
But seriously all these planning na cus of fear and economy.
My dad didn't make such plans yet there was not a time he delayed my bills.
God will provide

1. Land
(hold it for 10years at least) buy plots of land in your state of origin, fully document it, lease it out to farmers, and make sure its near a state capital. Buy it in your childrens name if u please. This could take as much as 60% of the funds and its very ok

2. Stocks.
(for at least five years) buy and hold like 3 or 4 presently undervalued stocks on the NSE in food/beverages, banking, or petroluem sectors. Make sure such company has good dividen/bonus track record and they are fully multinational in nature and as old as 30years. this should take over 25% of ur fund.

3. Gold jeweries
depending on ur environment and personality/discipline, this is a surebanker family investment, its safe and more liquid than land or property if well invested. Yes it often appreciate, but due to rescent global crisis, it has its ups and downs now, which means greater risk as well as reward oportunities, note: never speculate on gold jeweries for less than 3years. I speak from personal experience... Gold in the family, is a lifesaver.

4.FGN Bonds/TREASURY BILLS (If u have the sophistication and stermina)
this is very good and i even equate it to rents on property, its the SAFEST OF ALL INVESTENT.

5. Your childrens KNOWLEGDE AND HANDWORK
this is the greatest investment ever.
Dont wait till they are 18and above before they are forced to learn about work, skills, budgeting, cash incentives,discrimnation, salary etc. The earlier the better. Expose them 9-to-5 even if its partime or informal arraignment. Let then work to earn, and be closely observed on how they freely spend the money. Theres nothing wrong having your 14 year old working as sales, apprentice, office clerk, sunday school teacher, church staff or instrumentalist etc. So long as its well arrainged not to interfair with schooling. Its a new world order, the richest men in the world were mostly exposed to work ethics even as kids(you may google this) . If all investments are erroded away, man must fall back to his skills/handwork. Expose your children to
Books, and not just anybooks, self improvement books. Infact, a family library is more inportant than a car. Knowlege and experience is very important investment that cannot depreciate.

Hello, the best thing I'd advice is that u contact a stockbroker/portfolio manager. He can offer u a plan that is specifically mentioned to the needs u stated above. They myt offer a guaranteed income on investment depending on d plan and since u r intersted in having some cash every three months, treasury bills and other money market securities may b d best bet.
More so, an educational insurance policy wouldn't be a bad idea but I doubt if d 3months return needs will work out though u can try contacting an insurance company to look through their various policies and if they can make a tailord plan suited to ur needs.
All d best. Good idea trying to secure ur kids future

Contact a portfolio manager.

If you're going to buy land, please ask around very well. My neighbor just commited suicide after sinking all his life's savings into land business and it turned out he was swindled.

Now he left his wife and children a confused lot with nothing to live on.

Your best bet is SKYE RAINBOW ACCOUNT. It has special features designed to benefit parents seeking to save for the education and other needs of their children. It has special interest rate of 1% above normal interest rate on savings account. It also accepts lodgement of cheque/dividend warrant issued in the child's name without reference. Just take the bold step and walk into any skye bank branch nearest to you and avail yourself of this great opportunity. We will always say YES to your needs

Landed property/real estate z the answer, where by you can be renting it out and getting cash back every year eg. HOUSE... Remember, real estate can hardly depreciate its cash value and you'll never loose ur cash...

Leaving the money with the bank is not the best cos the bank is equally trading with ur money.
