Their presence further strengthens our bank-client relationship and reinforces our commitment to our customers. The Al Mumayaz Savings Scheme has been tremendously successful as shown by the numerous lucky winners we have announced in the past. This year alone we have had more than 800 winners so far, and this number will increase to approximately 1,350 by year-end. One of the reasons why the scheme has been so successful is that is rewards people for being financially prudent. As a financial institution, we want to inculcate this habit among our customers by giving them a product that meets their financial needs as well as motivates them to save for their as well as their family’s future.”

Along with our other innovative products, the savings scheme’s success reflects Bank Sohar’s dynamic position in the Oman’s Banking sector underpinned by its strong commitment to prioritise and fulfill customers’ needs beyond their expectations. I would like to congratulate the winners of this month’s draws and encourage all our customers to continue saving as the more they save, the better their chances of winning in the remaining draws.”
