StashAway Money Chat: A Guide to Raising Money-Smart Kids

Teaching kids how to manage money early on can set them up for financial success when they’re older. Although many schools don’t formally teach money management, there’s a lot that parents can do to teach their kids about practicing important money habits.

Marilyn Pinto has helped more than 3,500 kids in the UAE develop core financial skills, and we’re UAE’s award-winning digital wealth management platform. Together, we’ll discuss:

– How you can approach giving your kids an allowance;

– How to teach your kids to save and manage their pocket money;

– How and when to introduce your kids to investing, and more!

Join us to learn how to give your kids good lifelong financial habits. (They’ll thank you later!)

About our guest, Marilyn Pinto, Founder of KFI Global, an education initiative that empowers kids with critical life skills

Marilyn wanted her daughters to learn about financial literacy, but it wasn’t being taught in the current education system. As a result, most kids end up going through 15 years of schooling without learning how to manage money, budget, or use a credit card. That’s why Marilyn started the Kids Finance Initiative. Marilyn isn’t just an expert on financial education for kids, but she also teaches kids in a fun and engaging way.
