Benjamin Franklin recognised it all those years ago saying, "An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest", and we are still recognising it today.

Financial education can benefit everyone, from the young to those retiring, and those wishing to pass on money to future generations at the end of their life.

For parents and grandparents everywhere, investing in ISAs or stakeholder pensions for their children and grandchildren is a great first step to help them build their own financial future. However, they will need help to understand how to make the most of these investments and all the other financial opportunities that come their way throughout their lives, and financial education is a great solution.
