Compare Children Bank Accounts in Kenya

Children bank accounts are important to help you get your child into the saving habit early in life. Starting your child on a savings plan early can help set him/her up for a secure financial future. The easiest way to go might be to open one with your own bank; however you might find that other banks offer more attractive incentives than yours.

Take time to look at the features from all these children bank accounts and choose what sounds best for your child. It is always better to go for an account which does not require any type of maintenance fees and also you should find out whether or not any fees are charged for accounts that are not active for a specific period of time. High fees can eat up your child’s savings and any interest earned.

Different banks offer different interest rates. So, find one that offer attractive interest rates.
