For You

Savvy Teens

This account offers young people an opportunity to learn from a young age how to manage their own finances. Given how important financial skills are to navigating life, most children in our nation do not get this education early enough in life.

The Savvy Teens account is a FREE account with nil service fees, a Zimswitch debit card (free) or MasterCard debit card will be issued on the account.

The account is easy to open, manage and does not carry any monthly service charges.

Guardians can start saving for their children from an early age, while older children can open accounts under the supervision of their guardians and get a debit card.
