Building financial confidence

In an increasingly complex and digitalised world, young people today can benefit more than previous generations from understanding personal finance at an early age.

Our educational programmes, tools, research and advice also help parents and teachers build financial confidence in children and young adults. 

Moneyville

Moneyville is a game that gives 5 to 9 year-olds a basic understanding of money. Children can earn money and decide whether to spend it or save it.

Pocket Money

To facilitate a starting point for conversations about money and enable both parents and children to keep track of pocket money, we have developed a digital Pocket Money solution.

Denmark
In Denmark, our advisers visit elementary schools to discuss personal finances with the older students. Through cases, discussions and games, they present a range of topics, such as the financial implications of moving away from home and things they should be aware of when borrowing money.
