Starling Bank has launched current accounts for 16- and 17-year-olds.

The accounts will feature all the functionality of a full current account and can be opened through a smartphone.

Customers will have access to several payment options, including Apple Pay and Google Pay, via the account.

Anne Boden, CEO at Starling Bank (pictured above), said: “A bank account is a sign of independence and we wanted to make it easy for 16- and 17-year-olds to enter the world of banking with a product that enables them to understand what they are spending, easily save for their next big purchase and safely send money to their friends.

“It is never too early for people to learn about effective money management, so by offering our award-winning current account to 16- and 17-year-olds we are looking to develop a new financially fit generation.”
