What are the features of BisB’s Investment Scheme?
  • The account will be opened under the name of the applicant.
  • A bank statement detailing the status of the account will be sent to the customer semi-annually.
  • A free standing order will be offered to the customer upon his/her request.
  • The account hopes to pay high expected profit rate on the average balance payable to the account on monthly basis.
  • Free life insurance coverage will be granted to the customer.
  • The life insurance will cover applicant’s total contribution for the investment tenor agreed by the customer.
  • A lock period of 18 months will be applied to all accounts.
  • If for any reason the monthly contribution of the customer stops for any given month, the applicant will be liable for settling the cost of life insurance for that specific month.
  • If the monthly contribution stops for 3 consecutive months without any notice, the total accumulated fund will be transferred into a normal savings account and the customer will be notified by mail immediately. (The terms and conditions of the normal savings account will be applied immediately)
  • Customers can change their contribution amount and their investment tenor at any given time by submitting a written request to the branch.
  • The life insurance cover will be activated immediately on the new contribution amount after receiving the written request.
