How to open a child Bond Account
Customers who meet the Bank’s normal criteria for an account holder can open a Child Bond Account for a child aged 17 years or under. It will be necessary to show family or legal guardian relationship, or have approval from the parent(s) or legal guardian. Where the child is aged 16-17 years, he or she may open an account without an adults involvement.
