Which account is most suitable for me?

Before you even start considering the above graduate accounts, you would have to have completed atleast a 3 year university degree or diploma. As with most accounts these days, online banking and cellphone banking is included in most of these packages for you.

We feel that Standard Bank offers great value when looking for a graduate account, providing you with two options namely, the Elite banking account which offers a lower montly fee and slightly less capability.

Secondly, Standard Bank offers the Prestige banking account which is aimed at the individual looking to utilize the fact that they are a graduate professional. This account provides you with the option of a personal banker over and above great additional features and competitive fess.

ABSA - Unhappy 30yr loyal customer

1) Poor Service delivery to ABSA Private Bank Clients 2) Poor Exchange Rates for ABSA Private Bank Clients 3) As 30yr old customer ABSA has changed its focus on ABSA and not their customers as "cornerstone" of their business as set out in their code of conduct. 4) This customer urgently looking to bank elsewhere in 2017 HELP PLEASE!

FNB - Think zuma's admin department do FNB too

Worst bank . They need to get all their branches on the same page with relation to what documents are accepted for verification & proofs.I was told this morning by a FNBKYC rep, that each branch has their own veriation and terms regarding type of acceptable documents. i had taken 3 different documents which are on the "list of acceptable documents" to be told at Long Street FNB Branch they would not accept them.
