Absa trains Young Investors Network on Ignition Account

The Absa has trained the management of the Young Investors Network ahead of the implementation of a massive campaign to ensure many young people own and operate bank accounts.

The training which was held at the Bank’s Ringway branch saw the attendance of 10 members from management and interns of the Network.

Absa explained that though the Bank has been largely regarded as elitist and not youth-friendly, is now approaching the youth with a customised product.

The Officials of the Bank explained that the Ignition account is the best mode of response to breaking the barrier between the youth and Absa.

 The Bank is vigorously massing efforts to ensure that many more young people own accounts towards helping them to manage their finances adequately.

The Ignition, the Bank noted has a lot more benefits for young people between the ages of 17 to 26 and our students.


Opening the account gives young people the opportunity to enjoy some freebies like a non-payment of account charges and free vertical debit cards among others.

The Young Investors Network, who are the promoters of the Save A Cedi Day Challenge expressed enthusiasm at helping the Bank to reach the Youth bracket with unique approaches it has adopted over the years.

The Young Investors Network has over the years focused on financial literacy education and engaged in vigorous financial inclusion campaigns.
