Raiz Kids: Automatic Savings for your Child - Raiz Invest

Raiz Kids is a simple way to save and invest small amounts regularly for your children/grandchildren.

We understand that life gets busy, life gets messy, especially when you have little ones. For the parents and grandparents in our Raiz community, we know it is not simple to get started on a savings fund for your kids.


What is Raiz Kids?

Raiz Kids is a simple way to save and invest for your children and/or dependents who are under the age of 18.

Just like your main Raiz balance, you can invest your spare change from everyday purchases, set up a recurring or lump sum deposit towards you and your chosen Raiz Kid(s).



You can control the access your Raiz Kids have

Raiz Kids can have direct access to their own investment portfolio, with your permission. This can be an immersive way to help your kids understand how financial markets works and start developing savings and investing habits that they can take with them into their adult lives.

But don’t worry, you get to choose how much access your Raiz Kid has. If you give permission in the settings, your Raiz Kids can choose their own portfolio, or can make changes to recurring investments as an example. You can also choose to get notified any time a Raiz Kids account makes changes to these settings.


You can have multiple Raiz Kids accounts, each with different settings and permissions

Each Raiz Kids account can have different permission and controls, tailored to suit the age of the child and what control you would like to give. Each Raiz Kids account can have a different portfolio selection. You can have different one-off and recurring investments for each Raiz Kid, which could be great for different investment pocket money or does different chores around the house that are done 😊
