Bank Windhoek has launched the first edition of the #SoSolo lifestyle magazine for teens.

“From how to stash your cash, to the down-low on cool apps and everything in between like quizzes and interviews and advice,” says Edi, editor of the #SoSolo magazine on the content of the first edition.

The magazine is free to Solo account holders and also includes advice about budgeting, reader competitions, information about cell phone banking and the new BW app, and the magazine includes an interview with BW Bizzkid of the Year Danie van der Merwe.

BW’s Solo account, which is part of the same campaign as the #SoSolo magazine, is a youth product that parents can use as a tool to teach children how to manage finances.

“Understanding the importance of saving and learning how to manage a bank account and your finances from a young age, are very important for our children’s future financial wellbeing and financial independence,” says Marlize Horn, Executive Officer: Group Marketing & Corporate Communication Services at Bank Windhoek.

She stresses that the Solo Account is a good option for parents looking to teach children this important financial lesson. “Bank Windhoek’s Solo account makes it easy and rewarding for children to save with attractive interest rates, low costs and access to a range of free features such as free ATM withdrawals at Bank Windhoek ATMs and no monthly services fees,” she said.
