By  August 25, 2020

Acorns, the country’s fastest growing financial wellness system helping over 8 million Americans save and invest for the future, announced that Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia have become strategic investors. Acorns also announced, “it begins with $7 bucks,” an exciting partnership with Johnson featuring several programs that encourage families to start early and invest in the next generation. To kick off “it begins with $7 bucks,” each new Acorns Early family will receive $7 bucks invested into their Acorns Early account.  

Johnson and Garcia invested in Acorns to further their shared values of self-reliance, work ethic and commitment to preparing for even the toughest of times, with the hopes of inspiring Americans to shape their future by investing in themselves.

“Especially this year, there are numerous people feeling as I did when I was jobless with just $7 dollars in my pocket; anxious and uncertain about my life and future. Those $7 bucks represented a defining moment that changed my life,” says Dwayne Johnson. “By investing in Acorns and helping every family who opens an Acorns Early account receive a $7 bucks investment, I hope to inspire people to take responsibility of their financial future, regardless of background or current situation. The truth is, it doesn’t matter how small you start. Together with Acorns, we can strive to make saving for the next generation a reality for everyone.”

Knowing first-hand the impact $7 bucks can make on someone’s future, Johnson and Acorns pledge to help families “begin with $7 bucks” by investing $7 bucks into every single family who opens an account with Acorns Early, a new and simple tool to help families of all backgrounds automatically invest in their child’s future, today until September 7. In the spirit of bringing people along, any existing Acorns Early customers who refer a friend will receive a 7x referral bonus in the form of an additional $49 investment.

“Acorns is an incredible financial organization deeply rooted in its commitment to impact and empower the lives of consumers,” says Garcia. “The seasoned team of executives, fostered by shared principles of self-investment and service, is passionate about making financial knowledge and security accessible to all – it’s a thrill to partner with the team and add my expertise to advancing their long-term strategies and mission.”

“Acorns was founded on the power of humble beginnings,” says Noah Kerner, Acorns CEO. “We are excited to partner with Dwayne and Dany to encourage more Americans to start investing early cause the sooner you start, the more that money can grow!”
