|Where to put the fund now though. Stay and pay £30, stakeholder at 1.5% or measly 3% cash
|Blow for 60,000 F&C child trust fund holders
60,000 savers face higher charges after a child trust fund (CTF) manager announced a new annual fee.
F&C Investments will begin charging customers with a shareholder account £30 a year from 5 April.
|The sharecentre have a special deal at moment whereby if you pay £20 a quarter you get a £7.50 per bargain flat rate on deals up to £25k.So buy £20k's worth of a share and it only costs you £7.50-all for £80 per year.
|TBF & skirbell,
I also have a couple of self-select CTFs with Selftrade and am disappointed by the new charges. I had a quick look at the share centre as mentioned above and it looks a better deal (cheaper dealing fees and a low % annual management charge which works out cheaper than Selftrade if you only have up to a few £ks invested).
However, I have a couple of concerns with switching at the moment.
1) What the charge is likely to be for transferring stock from Selftrade (I would guess around £15 per line of stock but have not checked). The alternative would be to sell any shares held in Selftrade and just transfer cash but even then, you have the £12.50 per share commission to pay on each trade when you close out your existing positions.
2) How long would the process take? I guess there is a danger that the Selftrade transfer and account closure would not occur before you incur the new charges anyway?
My position is also complicated by the fact that we are heading off on holiday soon and wont be around to resolve any issues.
Therefore, on balance, my plan is to stay with Selftrade for now and take advantage of the 3 free trades in August before switching next yr.
As I said, I haven't spent a huge amount of time on this so dyor but just thought I'd add my thoughts.
|The Share Centre at www.share.com will charge as little as £3 a trade-very cheap and excellent site with reliable software.
Same situation for me with Selftrade. I can (just about) understand them charging £40 for other accounts but for a Child trust fund account??? That's daylight robbery of my little daughter so I also need to switch accounts. I'm looking around but let me know if you find anything.|
|The big advantage of CTF is that you(or your Child) pay absolutely no capital gains tax on profits.However a big drawback is that you can only put in a maximum of £1200 for any child in any one year.www.share.com are excellent for a CTF-very cheap,reliable trading platform and efficient.
|HELP - Anybody here?
I have 2 CTF's with selftrade. 1 is self select and on managed fund. I have no intention currently of contributing to the £250 given by the government.
Selftrade have now introduced an annual fee across most of their accounts and this includes both of the CTF accounts (including the managed fun which is already subject to a 1.5% fee)
The selftrade fee is about £40 a year.
Does anyone have any suggestions for other providers?
Thanks if anyone is still here|
|seems as though the members of the 'scheme' have had a falling-out. ctf went up as a result. will it rise further now?|
|great to see the result.|
|tball - twas ever thus! If you don't like the game...|
|I agree totally with hybrasil - I bought in aprox 18 months ago because this company looked excellent on a 3-5 year basis. Now just as those prospects are being realised, the cosy little club are divying up the company between them and stuffing the small shareholders.|
Try buying a few cwe very tightly held but due to sell its largest number of new builds this year.|
yes, very disappointing indeed - bought some of these as one of my punts for 07 - at least I have made a small profit selling this morning.|
|To say I am disgusted at the derisory price of £1.20 is an understatement.
This is a clasical "shag you"! approach to your investors.I bought here knowing that it would take time to mature and just as it is about to mature what do you know - they take it and the real profits private.
Any one else feel similarily?|
|Sales of between £100 million and £120 million expected in second half of
year according to Interims. Prelims due in March. Expansion into Europe noted in interims, and recent recruitment of key posts for southern England. Along with good dividend, rising house prices and tightly held shares, all suggest to me the share price could firm up quite well in 2007.|
|looks like I might have been right|
|I meant to buy some shares in this yesterday and completely forgot.
Doubtless the results will be excellent and the share price will fly!|
|worth a punt on the run up to results.|
|Has anyone heard if flat sales have started again?|
|bought a few more aagain this am very few about|
|puku, thanks for the info. £100M sales equates to 500 apartments; 65%of 901 is already well over that, so we should expect over £120M. Looks like a money-machine?|
|bought more again this afternoon difficult enough to pick up shares maybe some more will come in to the market tomorrow|
|with all the good news about (telford and artisan) I bought a few more of these today. Doing rightly already.|
|House broker is forecasting eps 2006 14p 2007 22p for P/e 6 and 4 with a yield of 7% at share price 84p. This is based on GDV of 183m + 274m in next 2-3 years. If they sell all the apartments seems cheap on 2 year view.|
