As part of efforts to encourage more people to save, Access Bank Ghana has unveiled a new savings product known as, “Goal” account.
The “Goal” account is modeled with features that help individuals to save towards a specific project or item they desire to purchase. Individuals can choose to save towards their wedding, higher education, family vacation, home improvement or hajj pilgrimage among other aspirations. With this new account, customers can earn competitive interest rates above industry savings rates, and also get added benefits including a free debit card, free e-banking services such as SMS/Email alerts, Internet banking (Accessonline) as well as Mobile banking (Accessmobile). Speaking to the media on the “Goal” account, the Group Head of Personal Banking, Mr. Stephen Abban noted that Access Bank’s intention is to help people achieve their dreams, meet their aspirations and have back–up cash for any emergency. “Our various savings products are designed to give customers the chance to meet their savings goal faster through the offer of flexible options and at very attractive interest rates”, he said. The unveiling of the high interest yielding ‘Goal’ account coincides with the launch of a year-long new savings drive dubbed: “Let’s Start Saving”. The savings drive will showcase Access Bank’s basket of unique savings products for children, under-graduates, salaried workers, pensioners and small business owners.
