Blue Tree provides a way for you to help you prepare your kids for their own financial future and to avoid financial stress.
We are concerned at how over half of current young adults have no savings*, our kids' will need more money than any generation before them as cost of housing and education continues to rise and, that money is the number one cause of stress in young adults.
We know that investing whilst kids are young means there is time to grow a pot of money, so they start adulthood with resources which many young adults do not have, also relieving stress.
Therefore we offer a simple tool to help make saving easy. It shares and allocates your investment account with your kids so they become savers and get financial education in the process. Our blog site helps you train them to become Financial Superheroes www.bluetreeblog.com.
* Office of National Statistics (ONS) in the UK stated that slightly over half of 22-29 year olds have no savings whatsoever (2018).
The Blue Tree Name
The Blue Tree name supports with helping kids visualise money. Money is a tree's seeds'. Most people simply trade the seeds they earn for goods and services. Choosing to plant (invest) some of those seeds (money) will however grow trees. As trees grow they produce more seeds resulting in a forest.
We want all kids to become adults with their own Blue Tree Forest.
