One expert has advised investing children's money in social housing in Brazil in order to set them up for life.
Speaking to the Guardian, Mike Head of Ethical Investors said this option can both raise money for British kids and help their counterparts in developing countries.
His comments were made in response to a query from creative designer Ruth Shearn, who was looking for advice on how to invest the £100,000 given to her four-year-old daughter Alexis in inheritance.
"It would strike most people as ironic in the extreme if Alexis's financial future was secured by investing in companies that exploit or directly harm children," he stated, adding that many kids are "horrified" to discover their cash has been growing on the back of a scheme that runs counter to their beliefs.
One programme that may interest those looking to invest in Brazil is the affordable housing project Minha Casa, Minha Vida (My House, My Life), which aims to provide homes for people on low incomes.
