Triodos Bank NV

Triodos Bank Right Start Saver

Money saved with Triodos is used to make loans that have a positive impact on social, environmental and cultural issues. Triodos publishes details of every organisation it lends to, so you know exactly where your money goes.

Whether it’s for your child, grandchild, nephew, niece, or godchild, opening a Triodos Right Start Saver will help them start saving for their future in a positive and ethical way.

The Triodos Right Start Saver is for children under 18 years old and can be opened with as little as £1. You can open an account on behalf of a child from birth to age 15 and be the sole signatory, or two adults can open an account jointly. Or a child can open an account in their own name if aged 7 to 18 and manage it themselves.

You can download a guide on setting up an account for a child including details on a child's exemption from tax.
