1 How different is the OCBC Booster Account-i from other savings account-i?

The OCBC Booster Account-i is a savings account that rewards you with a high base profit rate when you maintain an account balance of RM30,000 and above. In addition, it rewards you with wealth bonus when you invest with OCBC Al-Amin.

2 How is the profit calculated?

You get 2 types of profit on your account balance every month.

a) Base profit: This profit is accrued daily based on your account's day-end balance and you will receive this at the end of the month.

b) Wealth bonus: This profit is based on the first RM50,000 of your account's average daily balance and you will receive this by the 14th business day of the following month or earlier; truncated to 2 decimal places. No wealth bonus will be paid to your OCBC Booster Account-i if the total amount of bonus in such month is less than RM0.01.

3 What will happen when my account balance fall below RM30,000?

The base profit of 0.25% p.a. will be accrued based on the days where your account balance falls below RM30,000.

For example: If you have maintained your account balance below RM30,000 between the 1st - 15th of the month, then your base profit accrued for this account balance will be 0.25% p.a. from 1st - 15th of the month. Subsequently, if you maintain your account balance at or above RM30,000 between the 16th - 31st of the month, then your base profit accrued for this balance will be 3.00% p.a. from the 16th - 31st of the month.
