What our clients say

People ask me, 'Joseph, when will you slow down?’ I’m turning 63 this year. I still have all the energy of my twenties. That entrepreneurial spirit is still there. I don’t know how to live less than 1000 miles per hour. I need a bank that can follow me wherever I go, whatever I do. I need a bank that understood my risk appetite. And Bank One delivered!


Joseph O, Nigeria

As a photographer and designer, it was crucial for me to have a bank that understood my needs and my schedule of work. The last thing I want is to feel financially restricted as a freelancer, even though I have a solid career. Thankfully, my relationship manager at Bank One not only completely gets me, they’ve also been incredibly supportive. It’s wonderful to know that I can totally rely on them no matter what.


Arthur M, South Africa

I didn’t want to compromise on the life I wanted for myself. I’m a mother of two children with a flourishing career that takes me across the continent and beyond. I work round the clock but I know when to take some time out for myself and my family. For business and for pleasure, I know I can count on Bank One. That peace of mind is truly important to me.
