Explore the Appeal of Lifestyle Accounts

Savings Account A lifestyle account is generally one that allows individuals to save and rewards them for the size of their balance. The more you save, the more your interest rate will be, creating a positive cycle of financial growth for the account holder.

If you are having trouble saving, or you don’t feel that your current account is providing you with the level of interest that you deserve, then consider opening up a lifestyle account through the Caye International Bank on Ambergris Caye, Belize.

Interest Rates Grow With Your Savings

What sets a lifestyle account apart from other savings or checking accounts is the fact that the interest rate you are paid depends on the balance you have in the account. If your balance is somewhere below $24,999, then your APR will be .10%.*

As your balance grows and you have between $25,000 and $99,999, so too will your interest rates grow, and you can expect to receive an impressive 0.25% ARP. If your balance exceeds $100,000, then your APR will rise in tandem and pay out 0.50%.*

Encourages Saving for Account Holders

Whatever stage of life you might be in, saving liquid assets can be challenging. There are always new investments and new opportunities available, but sometimes the safest and most secure option is to maintain a minimum balance of cash in your account.

To help you accomplish your goal of saving enough for a home deposit, the cash purchase of an international vacation home, your retirement or trusts for your grandchildren, a lifestyle account may be the answer. You’ll be motivated to save in order to enter the next APR percentage bracket, encouraging smart spending habits over time.
