Lunar challenger bank launches account for teens

Nordic digital bank Lunar has launched an account and card designed to help teenagers better manage their money.

Lunar has started as a personal finance management tool and it has informed that it has nearly doubled the €26m in Series B funding it announced in August 2019, bringing the total disclosed amount to €46m.

This new service will offer a basic version of the current banking app to 15 to 17-year-olds. The teenagers will be able to see their spending review, saving goals and budgets.

Young customers of the bank will still be able to send and receive money completely for free and they will be able to have their own debit cards too.

Peter Smith, CEO of banking at Lunar, said: “Learning to manage your own money as +15 is is a core skill that will benefit you for the rest of your life.” 

“Our aim is to show that responsible money management can be fun and inspirational, and when our younger users turn 18, we are here to guide them further with our full product palette,” adds Smith.

Every targeting of teens is clearly an effort made to secure a pipeline of lucrative adult customers. So far, Lunar managed to build up its base up to 150,000 users throughout the Nordics.

Lunar Bank got a european banking licence in August 2019 and employs over 120 staff.
