Emirates Islamic launches premium Emarati Family Savings Account

Emirates Islamic, one of the leading Islamic financial institutions in the UAE and the preferred bank for UAE nationals has launched an Emarati Family Savings Account, tailored to their specific needs and lifestyles.

The customised offering builds on the strong bonds of family and togetherness in the Emarati community by enabling account holders to invite family members to open separate savings accounts with complete privacy and no minimum balance required, under an over-arching family tree account. Account holders can enjoy a range of attractive benefits and tailor-made privileges designed to help them achieve their long-term financial goals and lead an aspirational lifestyle, along with a higher expected profit rate of up to 0.75% p.a. based on family members’ account balances.

The Emarati Family Savings Account can include up to 10 family members who can avail a range of substantial benefits, including the Emarati VISA Signature Credit Card with no membership fee and vouchers worth up to AED 700 for an Emirates Islamic VISA Infinite or Signature Credit Card or AED 300 for the Platinum Credit Card. In addition, cardholders will earn an additional bonus of 15,000 EI SmartMiles on their Emarati VISA Signature Credit Card. Furthermore, account holders will receive a 50% processing discount fee on auto, home and personal finance with a maximum discount of AED 2,500 on home finance.
