Muscat: Oman Arab Bank (OAB) launched its newest scheme, the OAB Savings Basket, in line with its efforts to enhance financial returns for customers. The scheme enables them to invest their savings and receive guaranteed returns at an interest rate of up to 5.75% per annum.
“With the global macroeconomic challenges that have prevailed over the last few years, it is imperative that we offer schemes that have long-term benefits for our customers and their families. The main objective of the launch of our Savings Basket is to enable customers to grow their savings with attractive returns on their investment. With this in mind, we would like to encourage our customers to take part in this limited-time opportunity that is catered to meeting their long-term aspirations, with an array of value-added benefits,” said Rashad Al Shaikh, Head of the Retail Banking Division at OAB.
