Maybank's recycled wallpaper to attract 100,000 online deposits?

Maybank hopes to attract its young population to patronise its online deposit service by adopting a green theme for its Yishun branch. Among their efforts: the use of recycled wallpaper."The residents responded very positively which is why Yishun is a suitable Branch to kickstart our 100,000 online deposit account drive. With more than 50 percent of the residents there in the age group of 20-49 years old, we can expect the online accounts to be popular. Bank-wide, we are confident that our iSAVvy suite of deposit accounts will hit the 100,000 mark by end of 2010," said Ms Pollie Sim, Country Head, Maybank Singapore.Maybank was the first Bank in Singapore to launch a suite of online deposit accounts in 2005 and remains the only Bank offering this suite of products which also includes Shariah-compliant online accounts.Maybank Singapore targets to involve over 50 percent of its staff in environmentally-friendly activities by the end of this year.This move will be spearheaded by green ambassadors of the Bank who will undergo energy-saving training programmes and pioneer environmentally-friendly initiatives within the organisation.At least 50 staff members will be appointed green ambassadors.
