Account for children

Small savers can make it big with a savings account or investment fund account.  Regular saving enables them to make their dreams come true in later life. Both accounts have preferential conditions for children and offer them many additional benefits.

With a savings account, your child will learn the right way to handle money. They'll learn that saving it makes it possible for them to have the bigger things they want. And Topsy, the clever little fox, makes saving fun.
Your child can pay what they've saved into their savings account for young people, or, alternatively, you can manage the account as a gift savings account. You transfer money into it regularly over the years. When your child is grown up, they'll get what's been saved up in it as initial capital with which to build a future.

The Gift Savings Account is a far-sighted present and one your grandchild or godchild will be delighted to get.

The investment fund account combines the benefits of a savings account with those of an investment. The savings are invested in selected UBS investment funds. That means there are opportunities for higher long-term returns than from a savings account.
The investment fund account is also a valuable present for the future. If you set up an investment fund account for your child and regularly pay into it, you're laying the foundation for your child's future wealth. We'll be happy to provide you with detailed information and work out a solution that's tailor-made to suit you.
