Nationwide Teenagers Guide To Money

Published: 5/20/2010

Over 5,000 copies of the Nationwide Building Society Teenagers Guide To Money have been distributed to schools and colleges across the country.

The reason the guide was produced is that just under 70 percent of teenagers in a Nationwide Building Society survey stated that they did not really understand much about finance. With this in mind the Nationwide want to equip young people with a better knowledge and understanding of finance so they can make better choices when selecting a bank account and have to manage their own money.

A Nationwide Building Society spokeswoman said that the teenagers guide would help those people leaving school and equip them with a knowledge that will stand them in good stead for the future.
