What is Cashee?
Cashee is a fintech that provides debit card for teens, in this case a Visa card (and it’s free!). Their main differential factor is in the fact that they don’t just provide access to minors into the banking system. They aim for financial education too, in stuff like saving, expense management etc.
It’s precisely that educational vision what made us decide to write this post about them. Moreover, that has been one of the reason why they obtained several prizes and recognition, like the “Leaders in Fintech 2021” award, last year.
Cashee has several cool features like the expense management and the possibility for the teens to get paid by their parents for complete certain task, like cleaning the house. That way, they can learn the importance of money, and how to administrate it for their expenses, like saving for purchase something they are interested in.
Is it secure?
It’s as secure as it can be. Cashee cards are made by Magnati, that is a subsidiary company of First Abu Dhabi Bank, who is the owner of the license by VISA International. They operate according with the guidelines, requirements, directives and conditions issued by the Central Bank of the UAE as well as First Abu Dhabi Bank.
The funds are located in the First Abu Dhabi Bank, so it’s protected by the UAE banking rules. Additionally to that, they also take actions to check the risk in all their platforms, and they have constant back up and firewalls in place to keep your data always safe.
Who can join?
This can be a little turndown for some of our readers. However, at the moment of writing this article Cashee only accepts clients with an UAE ID. This is because it’s a security measure of the banking system they are part of.
However, maybe you have such ID (it’s enough to be a resident in the UAE) or you plan to obtain it in the future for you and your family, as part of your migration strategy, and this interest you.
For the children, they must be 13 years old or older to be able to open the account, and it’s free. If you have the UAE ID, the rest of requirements are not complicated, as you can see.
