Verity aims to help children eight years old and above develop their personal finance skills. The platform allows parents to control the main family account while giving each child the option to create and manage their own profile.
Parents can top up their children’s digital wallets directly from their own bank accounts and allocate a set amount to each user in the family through a pre-scheduled monthly or weekly allowance or one-off transfers.
Children also have the option to ‘earn’ money by completing chores and tasks set by their parents. Once they have received their funds, they are prompted to decide how much they would like to contribute to personal or family savings goals, causes or charitable initiatives, or their spending budget.
