Financial fitness can be defined as having enough money to meet one’s needs when it’s needed, including in an emergency. This would mean living within one’s means, with manageable debt and to have savings. But is this enough? What about owning a home, children’s education and retirement funds? The list can become long but it is achievable, with proper financial planning.

Being financially fit requires a careful exercise in financial planning – understanding one’s cash flow, defining one’s objectives and goals, going through budgeting, and knowing how much to save as well as to invest. Just like starting on a physical fitness programme, the starting process for financial planning can be quite stressful and overwhelming.

To help relieve the stress of achieving financial fitness, the public can approach a personal financial planner to get a free professional financial consultation at Baiduri Bank. They can drop by any Baiduri Bank branch or set up an appointment at Baiduri Bank Wealth Management Centre by calling 226 8363 or 226 8359.

To empower customers to take this first step towards achieving financial fitness, Baiduri Bank has launched the “Stay Financially Fit” campaign. From 3 August to 31 October 2018, customers who successfully sign up for selected insurance plans offered by Baiduri Bank are treated to special welcome gifts.

By signing up to a selected insurance plan with a monthly premium of BND100 and above, Baiduri Bank is rewarding successful customers with a choice of either an SMA heart rate monitor and activity tracker band or BND50 worth of shopping vouchers from Zalora.

Full details and terms and conditions of the promotion can be found on www.baiduri.com. For more information on other products and services offered by the Bank, please call the 24-hour Baiduri Bank Customer Helpline at 244 9666.

Baiduri Bank offers an array of financial products and investment options to suit the needs and lifestyle of their clients.

We tend to talk a lot about being physically fit and healthy. My social media feed is awash with posts about meal prepping, keto diets, body workouts, gym sessions, spinning, weight training, cross-fitting etc. But there are so many other forms of fitness that are equally important, eg. mental fitness, spiritual fitness, and of course, financial fitness.

What’s financial fitness? According to John Rosenheim, financial fitness is to have the money you need, when you need it. A more detailed definition would include living within your means, not being in debt and to have savings.

Just as physical fitness has multiple components like working out, eating right, and having the right attitude, financial fitness also is made up of multiple components.

Part of a financial fitness regime would include income protection, retirement planning , and life insurance. All these go towards ensuring that you have enough funds to cover your expenses when you are no longer working.

At Baiduri Bank, they can help you to assess whether you are financially fit – whether you are well protected from the unexpected, and have enough funds to achieve your life goals. It’s never too early to start. Find out how they can help, and what extra rewards you can enjoy as part of their limited-time offer by clicking here!

The Baiduri Personal i-Banking app first made its debut in the market on 25th of June 2013 and was developed as part of Baiduri’s initiatives to continuously improve customer experience.  Packed with existing i-Banking features, the app is available for download on App Store and Google Play at no charge.

Looking set to revolutionise the local banking industry, Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam (BIBD) customers can now make payments by the ‘scan and go’ method using their smartphones with selected merchants nationwide. This is made possible after the launching of a pioneering mobile payment service platform yesterday called the ‘eTunai’ that eliminates the use of physical cash and cards.

Offered under BIBD Mobile or BIBD online, the service, which is the first of its kind in the country, provides free-of-charge service and allows customers to use their smartphones to purchase goods without physical cash or cards. The payment amount will be deducted directly from their BIBD’s account.

Currently, there are only a limited number of participating merchants for the ‘eTunai’ namely Excapade Gadong, Charcoal BBQ and Grill (Bandar), Cheezbox, Gripps Cafe, QQestore and Ohso.

More merchants are expected to jump on the ‘eTunai’ bandwagon in the near future.

A briefing on ‘eTunai’ was delivered by Gyorgy Ladics, the Chief Operating Officer of BIBD, and Awang Hj Minorhadi bin Hj Mirhassan, the Head of Institutional Banking of BIBD, and Awang Zainol Amin Jaafar, the Cards and Mobile Customers Management, E-Banking Channel.

According to Awang Zainol Amin Jaafar, after customers register and activate their ‘eTunai’ service on BIBD mobile or BIBD online, they would only need a working Internet connection via 3G or Wi-Fi to make payments.

The camera screen of the smartphone will be activated for the customer to scan the QR code on the merchant tablet. After scanning, customers will then be required to select their mode of payment by either selecting their CASA account or Hadiah Point. This means that BIBD account holders can utilise their accumulated ‘Hadiah Plus Points’ instead of their account for payments. This makes it much easier for customers to redeem their points.

Gyorgy Ladics added, “Without the use of paper receipts, ‘eTunai’ eliminates the use of papers and ink which is good in preserving the environment while the electronic recipients can be retrieved anytime by phone or through e-mail.”

The convenient mode of payment, according to Awang Hj Minorhadi bin Hj Mirhassan, is beneficial for customers of BIBD and SMEs. It provides ease of payment for SMEs and corporate customers.

On security, Awang Zainol Amin Jaafar said that there is always a screen lock password on the smartphone and that customers would have to enter their Internet pin numbers to access the service.

With the immerse growth, Mr Gyorgy Ladics hoped that more customers would join BIBD.

“Transferring funds and making payments are just a few key strokes in mobile banking. We feel that the younger generation will be looking at BIBD as their first choice with BIBD online or mobile,” he said.

Touching on the mobile banking industry, Gyorgy Ladics said he is optimistic on the growth of the market.

Noting that some 17,000 customers have downloaaded the BIBD apps in just six months, he said that it would not be surprising to see this number jump to around 50,000 in the coming years.

A4-eTunai-low

Looking set to revolutionise the local banking industry, Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam (BIBD) customers can now make payments by the ‘scan and go’ method using their smartphones with selected merchants nationwide. This is made possible after the launching of a pioneering mobile payment service platform yesterday called the ‘eTunai’ that eliminates the use of physical cash and cards.

Offered under BIBD Mobile or BIBD online, the service, which is the first of its kind in the country, provides free-of-charge service and allows customers to use their smartphones to purchase goods without physical cash or cards. The payment amount will be deducted directly from their BIBD’s account.

Currently, there are only a limited number of participating merchants for the ‘eTunai’ namely Excapade Gadong, Charcoal BBQ and Grill (Bandar), Cheezbox, Gripps Cafe, QQestore and Ohso.

More merchants are expected to jump on the ‘eTunai’ bandwagon in the near future.

A briefing on ‘eTunai’ was delivered by Gyorgy Ladics, the Chief Operating Officer of BIBD, and Awang Hj Minorhadi bin Hj Mirhassan, the Head of Institutional Banking of BIBD, and Awang Zainol Amin Jaafar, the Cards and Mobile Customers Management, E-Banking Channel.

According to Awang Zainol Amin Jaafar, after customers register and activate their ‘eTunai’ service on BIBD mobile or BIBD online, they would only need a working Internet connection via 3G or Wi-Fi to make payments.

The camera screen of the smartphone will be activated for the customer to scan the QR code on the merchant tablet. After scanning, customers will then be required to select their mode of payment by either selecting their CASA account or Hadiah Point. This means that BIBD account holders can utilise their accumulated ‘Hadiah Plus Points’ instead of their account for payments. This makes it much easier for customers to redeem their points.

Gyorgy Ladics added, “Without the use of paper receipts, ‘eTunai’ eliminates the use of papers and ink which is good in preserving the environment while the electronic recipients can be retrieved anytime by phone or through e-mail.”
