We’re excited to share the news that GoHenry and Pixpay have combined with the saving and investing app Acorns to deliver financial wellness for families across the world, serving nearly 6 million people globally. This new alliance brings exciting innovation to our customers allowing us to work together to continue to innovate and prepare the next generation for a brighter financial future.
We want to reassure our customers that there will be no disruption to your service, and there’s no action required from you. In the US, we will soon be known as ‘GoHenry by Acorns’, and this partnership will create some opportunities to save and invest for our customers which we'll share more about in due course.
We believe that there’s never been a greater need for easy-to-use products that encourage everyone to build strong money habits by building confidence and practical experience in their ability to save, invest and budget. It’s always been our mission to make every kid and teen smart with money, and we’ll now be in a position to expand this to include the whole family, with investing, saving, and financial education products for everyone aged 6 to 106! This means we will empower kids and adults alike to build strong money skills by putting the responsible tools of money management and education in the hands of kids, teens and adults, globally, through life’s many stages.
Acorns - changing the way Americans save and invest every day
Acorns was founded in the United States in 2012 as an app to make saving and investing accessible to all, beginning with the empowering step of micro-investing. By putting the tools of wealth-making in everyone's hands, Acorns is a leader in U.S. consumer finance, serving over 4.5 million everyday Americans. Customers get automated investing in diversified portfolios, a simple retirement product, a bank account that helps people spend less to invest more, bonus investments from brands while they shop, an easy way to invest in their kids, and a foundation of financial education.
“All kids around the world deserve access to responsible money management tools and financial education,”said Noah Kerner, CEO of Acorns. “GoHenry’s mission-driven approach is perfectly aligned with Acorns, which we expect will help us accelerate our roadmap and deliver a global financial wellness system through all of life’s stages.”
Help us achieve our mission
GoHenry pioneered a new category in financial education and banking for kids and teens when we launched in 2012, and we now have over two million members across the US and UK, and more recently France, Spain and Italy, thanks to the acquisition of French FinTech Pixpay.
Louise Hill, Co-Founder and COO of GoHenry, says: "Since we started on our mission to make every kid smart with money ten years ago, we have helped millions of young people do exactly that and this new relationship with Acorns will enable us to reach many millions more."
We’d like to thank each and every GoHenry member for their continued support – we can now look forward to empowering people at every life stage to build strong money habits. Please watch this space for more updates to come!
