Client story: Hanna Oblikov 

Hanna Oblikov, a mother of two and CEO of a company specialising in booking musicians for events, draws inspiration from her childhood financial lessons.

From Dollarmites to Stockspot: Hanna’s Financial Journey 

Inspired by her own upbringing, Hanna is set on giving her children stronger financial stability, especially in today’s tough economy, so they can enjoy a head start towards achieving their financial goals. That’s why Hanna has chosen to open investing accounts for her children.

Meet Hanna 

Hi, my name is Hanna Oblikov, and I’m a mother of two toddlers, aged 2 and 3. I’m also the founder of Luxe Strings, a company that specialises in booking string players and musicians for luxury weddings and corporate events. 

The idea for my business came from noticing a gap in the market for top-quality musical entertainment.

Reflecting on my upbringing, I recall managing a Dollarmites account as a child, where I diligently saved my paper route earnings. Additionally, my mother invested in a small account for me, providing extra funds at the start of each university semester, which greatly assisted with expenses like books. 

This experience has motivated me to explore avenues for securing my children’s financial future, especially given the current challenges in housing affordability. I aspire to provide them with even greater support and opportunities as they grow older. 

In line with this commitment, I’ve set up kids investment accounts for them with Stockspot, ensuring they have a strong financial foundation to confidently pursue their dreams.

Why I decided to trust Stockspot with my investment portfolio 

I trusted Stockspot with my investment portfolio because it’s reliable, which was perfect for someone like me, juggling the demands of motherhood. 

I appreciated the simplicity and convenience; it felt like a weight off my shoulders.

The Stockspot sign up process

The Stockspot sign up process was simple and quick. Once I finished the paperwork, they reached out via email, welcoming any questions I had.

Our investing experience with Stockspot

Investing with Stockspot has been easy and I am happy with the overall experience. 

Plus, it’s a bonus that I can easily share the account details with family and friends for birthday gifts for the kids. We often opt for monetary gifts in their accounts instead of traditional presents, especially since they’re too young to fully appreciate them.

My investing goals

After using Stockspot for just over a year, I’m delighted with the returns thus far! I’m committed to staying for the long haul, with plans to pass it on to my children once they reach adulthood. 

What I like about Stockspot

What stands out to me about Stockspot is its user-friendly interface and its track record of delivering good returns. 

A final word about investing 

If someone is solely relying on a savings account, I would recommend considering the potential benefits of investing. 

Personally, I’ve found that my returns with Stockspot have far exceeded what I would have earned in a traditional bank, and I anticipate even greater growth in the future. I particularly appreciate Stockspot for its ease of use and the consistently good returns it offers. 

I’d also suggest starting investing earlier than I did to maximise long-term financial growth.
