Nowadays, many banks and online services have children’s savings accounts to help manage their money online. Check out our list of Top Savings Accounts for Kids and Teens in Hong Kong.

Greenlight is a specially designed debit card and app for children and teens aged 5 - 11.

The first-month trial costs US$4.99 and can be used for up to 5 kids.
