RCBC adds privileges to help optimize depositors’ funds amid pandemic
Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. (RCBC) has rolled out more client privileges that allow for better opportunities on deposits.
Through its premier banking offer, the Hexagon Club, depositors enjoy more rewards based on their deposit level. These include higher add-on rate on their short-term time deposit, better rates for an auto or a home loan facility, and a special rate for foreign exchange transactions, waived transaction fees, among others. The bank also increased the maximum free life insurance coverage for qualified depositors from 3M to 5M.
In 2020, RCBC noticed an excess in liquidity among its customers as a number of them hardly moved their deposit accounts. As people stayed indoors to arrest the transmission of the COVID19, consumer spending has significantly decreased leaving more funds in saving.
The bank also noticed that there was an increase in short term investments, as clients sought earnings better than the savings rate.
“When the deposits increased, we saw it as an opportunity to help our clients maximize their funds by enhancing their privileges which entitles them to get better rates and coverage,” RCBC executive vice president and head of Retail Banking Group, Richard C. Lim said. Other perks of being a Hexagon Club member include getting a first shot on investment offerings like corporate or treasury bonds, free life insurance privileges, and invitations to exclusive webinars on economic/market outlook, and stock trading.
