Platinum Bank won the nomination “Best deposit product”
Platinum Bank won the nomination “Best deposit product” in the annual rating Ukrainian Banker Awards 2012 according to “Investgazeta”. The majority of votes in this nomination were given to the deposit “Cash monthly”, which was awarded the top position in the rating.
The nomination “Best deposit product” in this rating became the most competitive, as the majority of financial institutions in 2012 could only replenish their resources from the domestic market, and, as such, the competition for the population’s finances turned out to be quite serious. The victory of “Cash monthly” deposit is the evidence of both the quality of this product and of the demand for exactly such type of deposit.
The deposit “Cash monthly” combines maximum profit with monthly payment of interest, thus allowing clients to receive regular addition to their income and providing free access to the accrued interest in more than 4,000 ATMs, distributed over all the oblasts of Ukraine (ATM network ÀÒÌîSphera). Not the least of the factors is the fact, that PtClick internet bank users can open the “Cash monthly” deposit without a trip to the branch office and gain an additional 1% to their interest rate.
“We are very happy that both experts and clients, thanks to this rating, defined the “Cash monthly” deposit as the most in-demand deposit in our line of products. We endeavoured to combine maximum profit, quick access to the monthly accrued interest and easy – in just a few clicks – opening procedure for the users of PtClick internet bank. Our winning in this nomination is a good incentive for us to further develop and propose outstanding and profitable deposit products”, - commented on the victory in the “Best deposit product” nomination Andrzej Olejnik, Chief Marketing Officer with Platinum Bank.
During the last two months “Investgazeta” conducted a survey among the entrepreneurs, experts and bank clients in Ukraine, in order to determine who was the most prominent player in the banking market last year. They received a total of over 5,000 opinions; the voting for best banks in 20 categories took place on the web-sites investgazeta.ua and delo.ua. The main distinction of Ukrainian Banker Awards 2012 from all other ratings and surveys is that the most influence on determining winners is that of the clients of the banks.
It should also be noted, that besides winning the “Best deposit product” nomination, Platinum Bank was also awarded second place in the “Most innovative bank” and “Best retail bank” nominations.
