BAIDURI BANK SHARES FINANCIAL PLANNING TIPS WITH KOLEJ IGS STUDENTS
26th March 2014

Bandar Seri Begawan, 26 March 2014 – In a continuing effort to increase financial planning awareness among students in Brunei Darussalam, a team of managers from Baiduri Bank today visited the Kolej IGS in the capital where they presented a talk to some 200 students of the college. The talk emphasized the importance of financial planning to achieve financial success in life and outlined how students can benefit from suitable banking products such as the "4U" Value Pack which was specifically designed with students needs in mind.

Alice Lee, Branch Manager of Baiduri Kiulap Branch gave the welcome remarks followed by a talk on basic financial planning by Siti Aminah, Bancassurance Manager at Baiduri's Wealth Management Centre. She gave tips on the choices students have today to save money. "Young people should be aware of their financial choices when it comes to planning for their future. This will ease them in their undertakings should they choose to study locally or abroad."

This was then followed by a talk on the "4U Value Pack" Student Account by Shannon Sikun, Branch Manager of Baiduri Bank’s Muara Branch. Available to students aged between 12 and 29 years old, the package is designed to meet the needs of students studying in Brunei or overseas. It offers ease of banking via electronic channels as well as fee waivers or discounts on services such as overseas ATM cash withdrawals, processing fees on bank reference letters for student visa applications, funds transfers and financing. In addition, parents of the account holders can also apply for loans and financing to help meet expenses related to their child’s education, such as tuition fees, travel costs or purchase of laptops, stationery or books.

The talk ended with a quiz and a question and answer session. Upon giving the correct answers, students were given Baiduri merchandise and Starbucks vouchers which the students participated with great enthusiasm.

At the end of the talk, Pg Hajah Fatimah Binti Pg Setia Jaya Pg Hj Momin, CEO of Kolej IGS presented the Baiduri Bank team with a token of appreciation. "The talk definitely gave an insight to what Baiduri has to offer and our students are thrilled to know that there are programmes that will take care of them while they are pursuing their education."
