Heritage Bank’s ‘My Day as a Banker’ debuts today
The initiative, designed to spice up the yearly celebration on May 27, is a bank-wide activity slated for Monday May 25, where selected secondary school pupils will have the opportunity of handling various banking roles like the bulk teller, customer service, among others.
The Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Heritage Bank, Ifie Sekibo, said the initiative is a demonstration of the bank’s commitment to innovation.
“Children are very special to us at Heritage Bank, hence we decided to celebrate them in a unique way that offers opportunity to have fun and learn about banking.
“My Day as a Banker is also Heritage Bank’s unique way of promoting financial literacy among children, which is the core essence of the HB Bud Savings Account, specially designed to promote savings habit among children and youths,” he said.
The events will be anchored by the Heritage Bank Financial Literacy Brand Ambassador, Zuriel Oduwole, the youngest child to have interviewed nine sitting Presidents.
Other activities include the Treasure Hunt, where pupils are expected to locate their fairy god parents from clues designed for them and get a ticket to the Children’s Day carnival.
The god parents are selected Group Heads of Heritage Bank, who would package and offer very substantial gifts to the pupils.
Heritage Bank will also hold a carnival on the Children’s Day, at Dreamworld Africana Amusement Park, by Chevron Toll Plaza, Lekki Expressway – in partnership with Inspiration FM.
Customers who have the Heritage Bank children account – “Bud Account” stand a chance to win tickets to the carnival, while tickets can also be purchased at any Heritage Bank experience Centre.
Also, in line with its mission to create, preserve and transfer wealth across generations, the bank developed the HB Bud Savings Account, to help its customers create wealth for their children, and provide them a future of financial independence.
The Bud savings account, which comes in three variants- BUD Mini (0 – 12 years), BUD Teen (13 – 17 years), BUD Maxx (18 – 25 years), aims to help these class of customers save towards targeted financial goals and it also helps to enhance the quality of education of children.
