GTBank is once again set to reward its SKS (Smart Kids Save) account holders in its Annual SKS Raffle Draw. Current SKS account holders will have an opportunity to win a variety of prizes on offer including scholarships, laptops and numerous consolation prizes during the raffle draw.
Speaking on the forthcoming raffle, Jide Ogundare, Executive Director and Head of Retail Division at Guaranty Trust Bank said that the Annual SKS Raffle Draw was designed to encourage children cultivate the habit of saving. â€œExisting customers can benefit from the draw which will cover the 6 geo-political zones of the countryâ€
The Guaranty Trust Bankâ€™s Smart Kids Save (SKS) and SKS Teen Accounts are GTBankâ€™s flagship savings product for children and teenagers designed to introduce them to the world of money and finance and promote a healthy savings culture.
These accounts can be opened in any of the GTBank Branches nationwide with as little as N1,000.00 (One Thousand Naira) and attract competitive interest rates above the prevailing savings rate. The SKS Teen account also comes with a customized GTBank Naira MasterCard
Other features of the account include free access to all Guaranty Trust Bank e-banking products and membership of the SKS fun club – a forum where account holders can interact with other Smart kids and teens via the SKS newsletter and website. Parents can also make regular lodgments into the SKS and SKS Teen accounts via Standing Orders from their GTBank account.
The SKS and SKS Teen accounts are designed to accept cheques and other clearing instruments including dividend warrants. Account holders are notified of transactions on their accounts through the Guaranty Trust Electronic Notification System (GeNS).
