Financial education, a lever to promote youth autonomy

What does it really mean to become financially responsible? It is a notion that comes from autonomy, independence, responsibility and finally, maturity. The first major questions about money generally arise around the age of 18. And this, with the departure of the parental home and the beginning of the active life. Money then becomes a crucial element of daily life. First salaries and credits, first apartment rental, life as a couple or first child... These are the steps that often govern the lives of young adults. But what is the key to learning how to manage your budget correctly?

As is often the case, it all begins in childhood:

To date, traditional banks have made little investment in financial education. These banks, have no practical tools to educate young people on this issue. Since 2012, the OECD's Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), which tests young people's financial knowledge, has revealed a very low success rate in France. To fill these gaps, it is therefore recommended that financial education be taught from an early age. 

It is estimated that 85% of the population in France have never taken a course in budgeting and financial education during their school career. Yet, such education is essential to make the right decisions in all stages of adult life. These gaps create inequalities and lead many young adults to have difficulty managing their money. 

Xaalys, an educational banking offer for 12-17 year olds 

In this context, Xaalys positions itself as the first financial companion for teenagers. It aims at accompanying them progressively towards financial autonomy in order to make them responsible young adults in the future. Xaalys is a neo-bank dedicated to 12-17 year olds, designed by parents. For a subscription fee of 2.99 euros per month, it offers a first bank account to teenagers.
