In an unprecedented move by any bank in the UAE, ADCB today announced the launch of Million Dollar Dreams.
A product that will excite the whole nation, Million Dollar Dreams promises to instigate investor's interest while giving one person in five thousand the opportunity to win One Million Dollars.
According to ADCB, there are major differences between Million Dollar Dreams and other similar products in the market, and it is these differences that make it so appealing.
Firstly, the winning amount is in US Dollars and not Dirhams, meaning that the winner will become a millionaire in the true sense of the word.
Secondly, with one winner in 5,000, the chances of winning are higher than with other products.
But most importantly, when you invest in Million Dollar Dreams you still earn guaranteed interest of 2% p.a over the one year tenure of the Million Dollar Deposit.
ADCB's Head of Consumer Banking, Mr. Alaa Eraiqat says' "We wanted to create a product that really captured the imagination of the people - not just our customers - but everyone. We believe that an investment that pays interest while giving customers the opportunity to win One Million Dollars is exactly that kind of product. Million Dollar Dreams will appeal to the cautious investor who will still want to see a return, but he will also be thrilled by the possibility of becoming wealthier than he ever imagined."
Million Dollar Dreams is open to both ADCB and non-ADCB customers. The minimum investment to enter Million Dollar Dreams is AED 30,000 or US $ 10,000, and the process to enter couldn't be simpler. Every additional certificate entitles the customer to increasing his chance of winning a Million Dollars. You can invest at any of ADCB's 40 branches, call 800 2030 or visit the bank's website at www.adcb.com
