The Standard bank signature banking account is a high-end bank account offering family banking, 24 visits a year to over 900 airport lounges, Social Media Support and a plethora of other banking benefits. Of course, great benefits come with a higher monthly fee, thus signature account holders pay the highest monthly maintenance fee for an account at Standard bank.
However, the monthly fee that is charged on the Signature account is worthy if we take into consideration the benefits that come with the account. These benefits are not limited to the account holder only but also apply his or her loved ones.
Your family members can benefit from your Signature bank account. You can add up to five family members to enjoy signature benefits such as signature on-call support via IM, WeChat or Facebook, access to your private banker, access to airport lounges, etc.
The Standard Bank Signature account is a private banking account that gives the account holder and his or her family a world-class banking experience. To qualify for the Signature bank account, you need to earn a gross monthly salary of R92,000.00.
The account also comes with a monthly maintenance fee of R469.00. Since the signature account is family-oriented, you can add family banking for R75.00 per month.
By holding the signature account your partner gets benefits as well. Your partner will pay an additional fee of R209.00 per month for a secondary account. If your partner is a World Citizen Credit cardholder he/she will only pay R22.00 monthly maintenance fee with family banking.
As a black card, the Standard Bank Signature account gives you even better benefits, considering that probably you are a boss in your own right.
