This new investment choice adds a powerful option to a family’s overall saving strategy.

Effective August 31, 2015 the Monetta Young Investor Fund was added to the New Mexico Scholar’s Edge 529 Program. The Fund will be an underlying investment in a custom choice portfolio in Scholar’s Edge domestic equity category.

The Monetta Young Investor Fund employs a passive/active investment approach primarily invested in the large-capitalization growth stocks. In addition investors automatically earn tuition discount credits that can be applied to over 340 private colleges and universities nationwide and can participate in an interactive education program that encourages kids to learn basic money skills that can last a lifetime.

“The tax benefits of a 529 saving plan combined with an investment in the Monetta Young Investor Fund gives families an edge toward investing for college,” says Robert S. Bacarella, Monetta’s President and Portfolio Manager. “This is an innovative and distinctive fund option that encourages the whole family to get involved in a college savings process.”

“This new investment choice adds a powerful option to a family’s overall saving strategy,” said Steve Dombrower, Oppenheimer’s Director of College Savings Plan. “It is one of the few investment options that actually reaches out to families in a fun and educational way.”

A 529 plan is a tax-advantaged investment vehicle designed to encourage saving for future higher education expenses. The plan allows an account holder to establish a college savings account for a beneficiary and use the money to pay for tuition, room and board, mandatory fees and required books and computers. Earnings are not subject to federal tax (and state tax, in most cases) as long as the money is used only for qualified college expenses.

Scholar’s Edge® is operated as a qualified tuition program offered by the Educational Trust Board of New Mexico and is available to all U.S. residents.
