Foresters, the international financial services organisation, has launched a Child Trust Fund. Available through its team of financial advisers, Foresters is one of the few providers to offer a stakeholder account as part of its home based personal financial review service.

Subscriptions to Foresters Child Trust Fund will be invested in Foresters Stakeholder Managed Fund. This Fund follows the same investment strategy as Foresters Balanced Fund, which has achieved consistent top quartile performance since launch in October 1995*.

Commenting on the development Forester Life's Managing Director, Euan Allison, said: "At Foresters we pride ourselves on our commitment to families and communities so we welcome the introduction of the Child Trust Fund as a natural extension to the services we provide".

For 130 years, throughout the UK, USA and Canada, Foresters has been guided by a powerful principle: that the growth and prosperity of our members and their families is linked to the communities in which they live. We are committed to understanding your financial needs, and to offering products and membership benefits, which will assist you with your financial security and peace of mind.

Foresters is one of the biggest corporate sponsors of Barnardo's, the UK's largest children's charity and also supports many local children's hospices. Last year our charity work involved 20,000 volunteers and some 1.3m hours of community involvement, which helped to raise over £16m for worthwhile causes. We measure our success not only by financial strength, but also by the positive impact we have on our members' communities.
