Back to School week is my favourite week of the year. Apart from worrying that I’ll be put out of a job because our team of junior experts are so good on camera, I love the chance to really get back to basics on all things investment. Even experienced investors need to refresh their knowledge every now and again. And whether it’s how to invest your first Isa or getting your head around the complicated world of pensions, we all have to start somewhere on our financial journey and it can be difficult to know where to begin.

With the advent of the Junior Isa, that journey can start at a very young age these days (from birth, in fact) – and part of the problem for parents is how to make investing seem interesting to a young person, especially when there is Netflix and TikTok and whatever else the kids are up to these days to contend with.
