Mar 23, 2013 (LBT) - The MBSL Savings Bank, to inculcate the savings habit among Sri Lankan, has launched a new campaign by offering the best interest rates and value added benefits for its entire savings and deposit portfolio covering minors to senior citizens’ savings products.

MBSL Savings Bank, a licensed specialized savings bank under the Central Bank of Sri Lanka and a subsidiary of Merchant Bank of Sri Lanka (MBSL), which is a subsidiary of Bank of Ceylon, the largest state owned commercial bank in the country.

According to its Deputy General Manager and Acting Chief Executive Officer, Lloyd Peiris, these interest rates are the ‘Best rates in the market’ offered for a limited promotional time period by any commercial bank or a Licensed Specialized Bank registered under Central Bank of Sri Lanka.

“We have a diverse range of savings products. The normal savings account is for all those who are above 18 years and can be opened with Rs.1,000. It’s a product, which offers a higher interest rate and facilitate customers to continue their savings habit. Bonus Savings is another type of savings account which gives a higher interest rate comparing to the market rates and this offers a 25% bonus interest on interest. Highest interest rate comparing to the market rates with additional option to receive 12 bonuses on the interest per year and a free insurance cover for accounts having a balance of over Rs.10,000 continually for a period of more than three months. Exclusive Family Savings Account is a product, which offers a higher interest rate with an option to receive 12 bonuses on the interest. And this also offers an insurance cover if the customer is having a fixed deposit worth of Rs.500,000 or above for a period of one year. Opening balance is Rs.25,000,” said Mr. Peiris.

“Higher Saver Account is another savings product which offers the best savings interest based on the account balance. At present, we pay 12% per annum for account balances over Rs.1 million. Customers can get higher interest rate comparing to the market interest rates based on the account balance and a free ATM card is issued for this account allowing them to withdraw from Seylan ATMs island-wide. Friendship Certificate is a savings product similar to the fixed deposit and the customer can get the interest instantly at the time he/she opens the account. This is the system we call interest paid up-front.
