Baby banking steps

Baby banking steps

The Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank launched a product named ‘Banoun’ which is an account for children aged 8 and above. To appeal and grab their imagination, they created a character called Darhoom that tells the kids stories about how to save and manage their allowance.

Why it matters

Not only does this program help kids understand the concept of finance at an early age, it encourages parents to become more responsible by investing into their kids’ future. While this concept may be familiar in many western markets, it’s an innovative one for an Islamic bank in the Middle East. Will this encourage all other banks to open up to a new, even younger, Arab generation?
