The world of child savings can be overwhelming and confusing at times. We know the desire of wanting to save for your little one, but where to start?
Our friends at Beanstalk, are here to help! They’ve recently launched a new app-based Junior ISA and have written a JISA Guide* to help educate families on how Junior ISAs work, the different types, how families can contribute and much more.
They have been in the industry for a long time, for over 10 years they have been helping parents save with their shopping club KidStart. Now they want to help parents make better and smarter decisions when it comes to saving for their kids.
From talking to parents with KidStart they could see that the savings market for children was broken. It was often confusing, poor value and tied parents into making contributions.
This is why Beanstalk was created. It’s designed to fit your lifestyle and make saving and investing easy and accessible for families of all shapes and sizes. They understand how circumstances change so don’t tie you into making regular payments, you can top up the account when it suits you.
Plus, they have some great tools to help you save little and often - round up your purchases and save on your online shopping with KidStart. Grandparents and other family members can be invited to contribute too.
How do you plan to save for your little one's future? We’d love to hear your ideas – just post your comments on our blog here or our Facebook Page.

Note: Unlike money held in a bank account, stock market and other investments can go up and down in value so you could end up with less than was contributed. Such investments should therefore be viewed as for the longer term.
*The introduction is designed to help you understand the basics of what Junior ISAs are and how they work but is not personal advice on what you should do in your specific circumstances, so keep that in mind.
