About us

We provide a simple way for families and friends to come together to save for the children in their lives.

Why Offspring?

Growing up is a costly business, and parents work hard to give their children the best possible start in life.

This could be a birthday present, a special holiday or a school trip.

Maybe it’s once in a lifetime moment: buying their first car, a university degree, a wedding or their first home.

Often, family members and friends want to help but face the difficult task of bringing everyone together.

What is Offspring?

Offspring is the simple way to turn your family and friends into a community of savers, who together can give your children the things they need in life.

By using Offspring, the people around you can work towards a shared goal, then celebrate the pleasure of achieving it together.

Our aim is to make saving simple, to make it work for you and your child’s future, with maximum impact. You can use your existing bank accounts, and you can decide what you’re saving for. And then you can choose the information you want to share with those who have contributed, so that they stay a part of your child’s saving journey.

This is just the start. Over time, Offspring will develop additional services to help families and their children get the most from their future. Connect with us and keep up to date with the Offspring story.

Avinash’s family and friends have played a crucial role in giving his son a great set of experiences. However, when gifts of money have been involved, the process of receiving them has often been clunky and, sometimes, awkward.

Avinash founded Offspring to make it easy for family and friends to save for their children and share in the pleasure of achieving a mutual goal.

As CEO, he is responsible for all things that will make Offspring useful to families.
