I would like to pass along some words of praise that were given to me by the ATB Call Centre. Sometime ago I guess Gooding Music came into the school & played music for about an hour then they were talking to the kids about finance. My daughter had come home saying that she needed to open a saving account and could she get a credit card to get a good credit rating by using the credit card to buy one thing & pay it off. Back when we were picking options for Grade 10 I tried to get her to take a personal finance option, I was not successful. This presentation taught her in one after noon what her father & I had been trying to teach her since she started getting an allowance.
ATB was absolutely thrilled to hear why I was calling to make an appointment for my daughter to get a savings account; they wanted to know which school my daughter attended. They said that often in the banking world they get young people who really don’t have a clue on what a bank is for or how they would go about getting a mortgage. They encouraged my daughter to call in anytime she had a question about finances and assured me that they don’t bite! I just wanted to pass along a thank you very much for reaching a teenage girl with some very practical advice. – Corrinne, Canadian Parent
