GTB Target Account Helps You Save Money For A Purpose (e.g Wedding)

GT Target account is an automatic saving system by GTBank that encourages financial discipline through savings. This product is designed to enable you save towards a specific target - whether it’s a wedding, holiday, new car or higher education.  Whatever your financial goal is, the GT Target account can help you achieve it.

Once you create your GT Target account, you can proceed to set up standing instruction orders to fund the GT Target account at your desired frequency. You will be required to provide the account which will be debited for the standing instruction, the amount to be debited, the frequency (30days, 3 months etc), start date and end date.

Say you want to have N150,000 in six months, you can place a standing order to have N25,000 automatically transferred from your GTB savings account into your GTTarget account at a certain time every month for 6 months.
