What is Beanstalk?

Beanstalk is a super simple app that helps you save & invest for you and your children.  

Is it any good?

We won best Stocks & Shares Junior ISA 2022 from the Good Money Guide and are shortlisted for Moneyfacts Consumer's Choice awards 2023. We're also rated excellent on Trustpilot and rated 4.2* on the PlayStore and 4.5* on the AppStore.  

Stocks & Shares Junior ISA - that sounds complicated, is it?

No - we've made Beanstalk simple to use. As parents ourselves we saw how difficult it was to open a Junior ISA so we built Beanstalk to be easy. It takes a couple of minutes to register on the app and open your children’s accounts.

Why Stocks & Shares and why a Junior ISA?

Many people choose stocks & shares when saving over longer periods as growth can compensate for the ups and downs. For example, over 50 years UK Shares returned over four times more than cash (Source: Barclays Equity Gilt Study 2016). Junior and Adult ISAs mean returns are tax free – so more is saved for you and your kids.  

Do I have to pick shares then?

No – we offer 2 funds which you can choose from using our unique slider tool: a cash fund (Legal & General Cash Trust fund) which aims to provide returns in line with money market rates and a shares fund (Fidelity Global Index fund) which aims to track the performance of global stock markets and therefore large companies such as Amazon, Facebook, Google and Johnson & Johnson.  

What does it cost?

The Beanstalk app is free to download and use. Our only charge is an annual fee of 0.5% on the value of any investments, one of the lowest around. (The low cost funds we offer have their own management fees of between 0.12% and 0.15% included).  

Do I have to make a regular contribution?

No - Beanstalk doesn’t require a monthly contribution - you can set one up if you wish but you’re not forced to and if you do you can reduce or pause it at any time. We’ve built some clever tools to help you save little & often such as rounding up your spare change, collecting money back when shopping at partner retailers including up to 5% from Tesco Online, up to 10% from Sainsbury’s Groceries Online and many more. Family and friends can easily contribute too and you can invite grandparents, or others through the app and they will be linked to your children’s accounts and be able to contribute.  

Who is behind Beanstalk?

Beanstalk is the newest member of the KidStart family. KidStart is the shopping club for parents that has been helping families save for their children for over 12 years and has helped thousands of families save millions for their little ones.
