Clever banking for young people Give your children access to a world of experiences, plus access to exclusive events

With the free Viva Banking Packages, your children will receive all important Swiss banking services from a single source during their youth and studies. At the same time they have access to the Viva World of Experiences with discounted movie and concert tickets, as well as many additional extras.

Nowadays, it is never too early to teach your children personal responsibility. The quicker you instill independence in your offspring, the more successful they will be in managing their own lives later on. This is particularly true with regard to managing their personal finances, which is why the long-established Swiss bank Credit Suisse offers young people attractive and comprehensive banking services through its Viva packages. In addition to financial freedom and personal responsibility, Viva gives young people access to many exclusive extras.

Viva young and viva student

The Viva Young Package enables students, apprentices, and young professionals between the ages of 12 and 23 to independently manage their money when they first start earning. The second Credit Suisse package, called Viva Student, is aimed at students aged 18 and over. This attractive banking package provides additional financial freedom and flexibility during their studies, up to the age of 30.

Both banking packages include a private account and a savings account. The Viva savings account currently offers an attractive interest rate of 1% on balances both big and small. This gives your children certainty that their money will grow despite interest rates being low worldwide. The Viva private account and Viva savings account are easily managed with a few clicks online or through the Viva app. Both packages also include a Debit Mastercard. This debit card enables young Viva clients to make free cash withdrawals in Swiss francs or euros around the clock at any ATM in Switzerland. The Viva credit or prepaid card lets your son or daughter make secure cashless purchases. In Switzerland, abroad, or online.
