CIMB Malaysia has also tried to attract younger customers by using games to teach financial literacy to youth. The bank has developed a number of online games to designed to engage children including a fake online stock exchange and CIMB Youth Savers, a financial literacy tool for children. Cohen notes in the Gartner study that children are a particularly important demographic for the Malaysian bank because 28% of the country's population is 15 years old or younger.
