Welcome to behavioural banking

Welcome   to a bank that doesn’t just store your money, but changes your relationship with it

We believe that incentivising you to make better financial decisions will generate higher savings levels, lower risk and increased wealth for society as a whole. We've done the research and it boils down to this: If South Africans, as individuals and as a nation, want to move forward – we need to reduce our debt and foster a healthier banking culture.

Why do South Africans need to bank healthier   ?

Our research shows that on average, South Africans are not managing our financial health well and have been spending more than we earn for the last decade. As a result, we are experiencing 3 big financial conditions which include inability to deal with unplanned expenses, having debt that is expensive and unsustainable, and not being prepared for retirement.

The good news is these 5 controllable behaviours can help people become financially healthier:

Spending less than you earn
Saving regularly
Paying off your property
Investing for the long-term
Making sure you are protected against insurable events

Our goal is to help you understand these behaviours, improve them, and in doing so, improve your overall financial health. Through Vitality Money, we'll guide, motivate and reward you along your journey to banking healthier.
