Episode 78 – Teaching kids finance with Sandeep Suri, BirdFin

A couple months ago, Nadir Pop & Peter Pop did an episode on Finance, it was for parents to save up for their children and their expenses. Do check it out if you haven’t already here

.On this episode, the Pop duo discuss teaching children finance from a younger age. They are joined by Sandeep Suri, Founder of Birdfin, an app that helps children understand the importance of money through experiential learning.

Sandeep Suri is the CEO & Co – Founder – MyDigitalCube. Previously he was the Country Head, Ireland-Fidelity Invst and has worked with brands like Dell, Mphasis, ANZ and Bajaj.

The earlier you start a child’s financial education process, the better. Lessons should begin before age seven, because research shows that money habits and attitudes are already formed by then.
