“At Diamond, we value our Youth customers. We do not just acquire customers, we engage customers. That is why in collaboration with internal and external partners such as IT, Transaction Banking, Women’s World Banking, Commonwealth (formerly D2D Fund), Gamsole, Microsoft and other local vendors, we have developed a multifunctional engagement platform to cater to both the needs of customers and non-customers alike”

Ryan Newton, Manager for Strategic Advisory at Women’s World Banking stressed that the service will enable youth to build financial capability that will serve as a foundation for banking successfully as adults.

“By using a gamified platform, we not only drive engagement with youth, but we help these young clients build their financial capabilities and set them up for long-term success. Users earn points, badges and rewards for positive financial behaviors such as managing their finances and budgets, setting savings goals, and achieving those goals. They can also participate in championships and tournaments to reinforce these lessons in good banking.”

According to the Bank, the service will help customers imbibe a savings culture from an early age, by building financial capability and literacy in customers.

“This entails teaching, assessment of risks and opportunities, development of entrepreneurial skills, teamwork and collaboration, goal setting and readying for the workplace”.

With the launch of the service, Diamond Bank has reaffirmed its leading revolutionary role in driving digital financial services as Nigeria’s fastest growing retail bank.
