I chanced on something recently that highlighted why we built Hugo.
My father set up a savings account for me when I was a little boy so I could learn about saving and the “value of money”. This is little passbook let you start with $2 and still get interest. And the terms and conditions could be understood by anyone. Simple and convenient and it taught you about money.
We may have come along way since 1976 but yet this highlights how broken our current system is . . . I recently opened a bank account and the terms and conditions where 180 pages long . . . opening a bank account is a nightmare.
Finance is complicated than the 1970s, no doubt! But that does not mean one’s life needs to be complicated by it. You can open a Hugo account in 3 minutes with a tiny deposit to start with . . . you will be able to save together through shared moneypots, passing on valuable financial knowledge from generation to generation.
. . . and Hugo can help bring out the inner fun in us all . . . just as I smiled when I saw Happy with his pass book.
