29 August 2019

Bandar Seri Begawan, 19 August 2019 - In partnership with Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam (AMBD), Baiduri Bank participated in the National Savings Day 2019 activities, conducted all over the nation.

Baiduri Bankís involvement started with Financial Awareness Roadshows at Bruneiís higher institutions - Universiti Teknologi Brunei (UTB) and Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD). Held in early August, the roadshows aim to equip university students with financial management skills before they join the workforce, as well as to foster an overall healthy financial lifestyle. Here, Baiduri Bank employed easy to understand games and conducted giveaways, to encourage students to learn simple concepts like budgeting, and planning their financials.

The events culminated in the Financial Fun Fair at Jerudong Park on the weekend of 17-18 August 2019. Carrying the theme "Fusion of Green and Technology," Baiduri Bank deployed games and activities for the public to enjoy. Crowds thronged the fun fair to have fun and try their hand at the various activities on display. The Financial Fun Fair was organized with the aim to emphasise the importance of being environmentally-friendly and, subsequently, for the public to realise that this concept can also be extended to daily financial transactions and decisions, which may include utilising technology.

Speaking on Baiduriís participation in the events, Pg Azaleen Pg Dato Hj Mustapha, Deputy CEO and Head of Retail Banking and Branch Network, said ďThis is the fourth consecutive year that Baiduri Bank has taken part in AMBDís National Savings Day initiative. Financial literacy is important, at any age. From free consultations, to fun and interactive activities, we hope our participation can boost financial awareness among the public.Ē

The National Savings Day is one of the ways that the Bank has shown support for national initiatives to promote a savings culture. A cause that is close to its core values, Baiduri Bank has also been a strong supporter of the Global Money Week celebrations for the past 4 years. Further to that, the in house team of Personal Financial Planners has been very active in raising awareness on the importance of saving and budgeting to students in various schools as well as staff in various public and private agencies in Brunei.

Additionally, Baiduri Bank is also the financial sponsor for the Junior Achievement (JA) Brunei.
