A convenient Shari'ah compliant banking option for Islamic youth under the age of 19
It’s never too early to start banking and what better way to instill money sense into young adults than by opening a bank account. AIB’s Youth Account provides teenagers with the precise materials needed to understand their finances and experience becoming responsible money savers. The Islamic Youth Account is an innovative combination of a transactional and savings account. This allows you the freedom to make the purchases that you need – without the worry of carrying around cash.
With your PIN-secure debit card, you will have the convenience of paying for goods and services at any point-of-sale; as well as having the flexibility of withdrawing cash at any Absa ATM or at selected retailers.
An annual profit share calculated at Absa’s financial year–end (31 December) and paid into your account on 25 January of the following year.
