Research shows that kids who are familiar with the way money works will make better financial decisions when they grow older. We’re bombarded with money messages from television, movies and advertising, and children catch on on fast. Better to begin teaching them the right lessons early than leave it to chance. Financial education can help all of our children grow into financially dependent, responsible adults who are neither debt-ridden nor entitled. It is also important for families of wealth to begin instilling their children as soon as possible about the responsibility that comes with being a good steward of wealth.
That’s why CapWealth Advisors holds Money Camp each summer, and it is open to all children, grandchildren, godchildren, nieces and nephews of clients. Kids learn early that money can buy them things that they want and need—and they quickly learn how to spend it! But kids may not understand all of the ways that money can be used. Money Camp imparts a broad financial overview to children, teaching them the four primary ways that money can be used—saving, spending, investing, and donating—as well as other basic and intermediate financial terminology and concepts.
Other Financial Education for Kids:
- Individual Sessions: As part of the CapWealth services, we also provide individualized private sessions (or sessions with multiple siblings) that cover topics specific to your family. From trusts and estates to stocks and bonds, we tailor these learning sessions to meet your family’s needs.
- Regular Classes: For families of extraordinary or complex wealth, it is often advisable to host a series of regular classes with the children that covers everything from the broadest points of the industry to the very specific, family-related financial topics. Please note that we offer Skype courses for out-of-town children. While some families might need individual classes, most families choose to hold these courses for all those heirs who may one day have access to the family’s fortune. We promote harmony and teamwork among larger groups of children who will someday be working together to solve problems related to family wealth.
Children’s Educational Topics May Include:
- Short-term & long-term financial goals
- Inflation and ways to combat it
- The importance of investing early
- Budgeting to meet your goals
- Liquid vs. illiquid investments
- How to select stocks to invest in (diversification)
- Risk vs. return
- And many more…
