In its commitment to give back to the nation as it celebrates its 10th anniversary — under the theme ‘Creating Value’ — CDH Investment Bank (CDHIB) has revised the interest rates for its prime investor’s account from 6.00% to 7.50%.
This is besides the various stakeholder engagement activities the bank has undertaken this year and in increasing the interest rates, the Bank has gone a step further to create value for existing and potential clients.
The bank’s Marketing Manager, Nancy Bisika said the decision was made in order to allow individuals and businesses to enjoy better returns for their savings.
“The prime investors account allows customers, committed to saving money, to invest for future projects or unforeseen cash flow needs,” she said. “Besides the attractive interest rate, the account has no ledger fees allowing customers savings to grow.
“We appreciate the support that we have received over the years and felt it was important to give back to customers by increasing the interest rate of return of our investment accounts.”
Bisika added that the prime investors account “offers flexibility to customers as it is accessible through digital platforms such as internet banking, ATMs and additionally comes with a special savers checkbook to help customers track their expenses”.
“The account allows the owners or third parties such as SMEs and individuals to cash out from CDH Investment Bank counters without the presence of account signatories.
“We are aware that during the festive season, some individuals are privileged to cash out funds through bonuses, village banks and the maturity of other interest bearing savings.
“As such we intend to spice the festivities by creating value for these funds with the attractive interest rate. The enhanced features for the prime investors account will provide more convenience to clients.
“In a world with high cost of living, high taxes, high everything, who doesn’t want a bank account that will grow their money without bank charges”.
