Students Encouraged As DTB Celebrates World Saving Day
Diamond Trust Bank in conjunction with Bank of Uganda on Monday 31st October joined the rest of the world to celebrate World saving day under the theme “You can do it.”
World Savings Day is celebrated every 31st October with the objective of bringing light the importance and relevance of Saving.
DTB has previously participated in similar events with the aim of encouraging the population to transfer their savings into bank accounts.
During the same function, Samuel Muyingo the head of marketing said that it is necessary to save because it gives you peace of mind, expands your options for decisions that have a major effect on your quality of life and eventually gives you the option to retire. He added that most of the people put in hundreds of hours of work each year to earn most of their money but when you have savings and stash your funds in the right places, your money starts to work for you because over time, you’ll need to work less and less as your money works more and more, and eventually, you might be able to stop working altogether.
He also revealed that you can simply walk into any of the 38 DTB branches Country wide where the customer will be guided by the Customer Service officers on a suitable bank account that suits the customer financial position and start saving. The event was graced by other banking institutions like Barclays, Standard chartered bank, Stanbic, Mercantile, KCB, Centenary bank among others.
