What are my options for investing the money in my custodial account?

You can invest in the same stocks and ETFs in your custodial account as you can in your Invest account. Once you transfer money into your custodial account, you are free to invest the money in the custodial account however you’d like.

Want more information about opening custodial accounts? We’ve got you covered.


The adult (or Custodian) who opens the account can manage the money and investments until the minor reaches the “age of majority.” That age is usually 18 or 21, depending on the Custodian’s state. The money in a custodial account is the property of the minor. Money in a custodial account can be used by the parent or legal guardian, but only to do things that benefit the child.
