It is a holistic financial management solution offered by banks and includes banking, investment and other financial services for customers. Individual attention to customers is provided through personal banking managers who help plan their financial investments.

Most major banks provide dedicated areas for premium banking clients, which offer priority access to customers, even when it comes to telephone or online touch points. Premium banking customers also get priority service & preferential pricing on offerings like credit card applications, loans and more.

For example, in the UAE, a customer may need to have AED 50,000 or more in the bank’s account or financial investments or a combination of both, in order to qualify for premium banking.

In the UAE, reputed banks like RAKBANK offer different types of premium banking accounts, depending on the customer’s net worth. So before you choose the premium banking service you wish to use, it is recommended that you check the benefits and advantages of each, depending on your financial needs.
