Big things come from small beginnings

Investing money for your children can be very valuable. – Literally. Because there are always bigger expenses in life — Starting with a new bike, a driver's license or a school year abroad. Big expenses coming all at once? This can be a challenge for parents and is of course not always possible.

Saving into Savings Trees at Bling — a long-term investment for children — can be a financial provision: For your own kids, for your godchild or for your grandchildren. In the long run, small individual sums become a good reserve that can be used for various purposes. If larger sums are then required, you can talk to the child about whether it makes sense to use money from their Growth Grove for this purpose.

Money in the Savings Treesis invested sustainably

Whenever you pay money into Savings Trees, it is invested into sustainable funds.

Geld, das du investierst, ist immer einem Risiko ausgesetzt. Ebendieses Risiko führt auch dazu, dass du eine Rendite erzielen kannst. Bei den Bling Sparbäumen hast du die Möglichkeit, für jeden Sparbaum eine eigene Risikostufe (von 1 bis 10) festzulegen. Basierend auf deiner Risikostufe wird das Geld sicherheits- oder ertragsorientierter investiert. Dabei ist das Anlagekonzept aber grundsätzlich konservativ und dank aktivem Risikomanagement werden Schwankungen reduziert. Im Vergleich zu einem Investment in eine einzelne Unternehmensaktie kannst du aufgrund der verteilten Strategie übrigens auch nie das komplette Geld verlieren. Mehr dazu findest du hier.
Geld, das du in die Sparbäume investierst, wird verteilt in Aktien und Anleihen investiert. Und wenn sich die Märkte negativ entwickeln, wird das Geld nicht investiert und in einer Kasse gehalten. Um das Risiko zu minimieren, wird das Geld übrigens nicht in einzelne Aktien investiert, sondern in Aktienpakete. Mehr dazu kannst du hier lesen.

Im Unterschied zu einem gewöhnlichen ETF wird täglich angepasst, wie das Geld investiert wird. Steigen die Kurse, wird mehr in Aktienpakete investiert. Fallen die Kurse, wird der Anteil an Aktienpaketen reduziert, um dich vor hohen Verlusten zu schützen. Das Gleiche gilt auch für die Anleihenquote.
Was bringt es, in die Zukunft zu investieren, wenn es keine Zukunft gibt? Deshalb beinhaltet die Auswahl der Wertpapiere ein mehrstufiges Screeningverfahren, welches darauf ausgerichtet ist, schädliche Investitionen auszuschließen. Für das tägliche Risikomanagement werden ESG-Indizes verwendet, die viele verschiedene nachhaltig selektierte Aktien aus der ganzen Welt enthalten. Außerdem verpflichten sich die Fonds dazu, mindestens 40 % seines Fondsvolumens in Green Bonds zu investieren, also in Anleihen, die ausschließlich in nachhaltige Projekte investieren.Die Fonds haben gemäß EU-Offenlegungsverordnung die ESG-Klassifizierung Artikel 8, die zeigt, dass eine klare Nachhaltigkeitstrategie verfolgt wird.

Das MSCI ESG-Rating bewertet die Fonds mit AA (Stand: 1. März 2023):

Should I plant a Savings Tree for my child?

Whether it's for their driver's license, initial investment, education or for free disposal – Long-term investments are ideal for children. Because as we know, the longer the investment period is, the stronger the compound interest effect will be. In this way, you can contribute to your child's financial and professional independence. You can also reduce future financial burdens on your family.

What are the Savings Trees all about?

With the Savings Trees, Bling has developed an innovative display that makes investing family-friendly. The more the balance in your custody account increases, the more your virtual Trees grow. By the way: You can customize your Trees in the app. The color, tree species or landscape do not change anything about your investment. You can change the design at any time.

At what age should I start investing for my child?

The earlier you start investing money for your children, the better. This is because the longer the investment period is, the greater the potential for higher returns and wealth accumulation there is. For example, if you want to save for your children's education in the long term, it makes sense to start early in order to spread the savings amount over a longer period of time and thus minimize the investment risk. it can also be worth investing early if you want to build up wealth in the long term and protect your money from loosing value due to rising prices. This way, you can benefit from long-term returns and steadily build up your assets. It's never too late to start saving and investing, though. Even when your children are older, you can still reap the benefits of long-term wealth accumulation and contribute to their financial future.

Can I lose my money?

No return without risk! Price fluctuations are part of investing and are based on the risk level you have set. Thanks to active fund management, the investment strategy of your savings tree is adapted to the market environment. You can find out more about the strategy here.

Is this a children's bank account?

Even if you invest into the Savings Trees for a more carefree life for your child, you remain the legal owner of the deposit for the time being. This has various advantages. The custody account can be opened quickly and without the consent of the other parent. This means that relatives can also create and invest into a savings account. Control remains with you and is not automatically transferred to the child on their 18th birthday. If you have more than 8.200€ in assets, you are also not entitled to BAfög. On the other hand, you cannot benefit from the tax-free income limit for children if you have a custody account in your name. Please consult your tax advisor about your personal tax situation.
