Copper Introduces Investment Product for Teenagers to Promote Financial Literacy!

Copper | December 28, 2022

Copper, the premier banking app that teaches teens and children about money and prepares them for future financial success, has expanded to include Copper Investing, a teen-centric Registered Investment Advisor (RIA). Copper Investing provides easy-to-use, automated portfolios for kids to learn about (and begin) creating wealth in a secure environment. Its goal is to give teens long-term financial power by offering them real-world learning experiences that would enable them to become better investors and not just make money. Copper goes beyond banking with Copper Investing, the first-of-its-kind platform for teen investing based on education. This comes after Copper held free workshops on money management in over 5,000 high schools across the country. The product gives teens easy-to-use, automated portfolios for investing. This helps them learn about money at a young age and use what they've learned to safely build wealth. Copper thinks that with inflation going up, teens need to learn more than just how to save money. Spending time in the market and being willing to take risks are two of the best ways for teens to build wealth. The company wants to teach them about money so that they can become smart investors. This way, parents can feel safe knowing that their teen's financial future comes first. Copper Investing uses a unique questionnaire based on best practices in the industry to find out how much risk its users are willing to take. Then, it matches them with a finely crafted portfolio that fits within their comfort zone while also taking into account what their parents want. All three of Copper's global equity portfolios don't have any exposure to bonds or cryptocurrencies. Instead, they use a diverse group of low-cost ETFs to offer a good balance between risk and long-term return. Copper has also given about $1 million to over 200,000 people on the Copper Investing waitlist. Copper will invest over $1 million into the first investment and wealth-building accounts of teenagers as soon as the investing product becomes operational. AboutCopper Copper Banking was developed to enable teenagers to obtain real-world financial experience by granting them access to their funds in a way that regular banks cannot. Copper's app and debit card help parents and teens talk about money while also teaching teens how to make smart financial decisions. The company was started with the idea that all teenagers should have equal access to financial education and be able to learn by doing, because it's never too early to be financially responsible.
