Seminar before THE networking lunch – Cash Management – Why your bank pays you next to nothing in interest on your savings, and what to do about it. Hosted by Domus Financial

The seminar will cover how and why banks and financial institutions are building savings products which are complicated and don’t offer a competitive rate of interest. It will also cover how as a consumer you can manage your savings and cash far more easily and receive the best rate of interest possible through using Domus Financial’s cash management service.

People should come to this seminar because over the long term, lost interest on savings can be considerable, and it is a common theme that banks offer poor returns on their accounts and products for savers. We have introduced a new cash management service which we want to share with our existing and new customers, which in a nutshell researches the whole of the market for different types of accounts and savings and demonstrates through this research what type of interest the customer is currently receiving on their savings and what they could potentially be earning should they move their accounts to another bank or provider.
An example – a client who has a considerable amount of savings, and through this service we identified her current interest she is earning is £6,900 however by managing the money more effectively her new rate of interest she is earning is £13,700. Over the longer term this figure is even more significant.
Attendees to the seminar will essentially earn more money on all future savings and will find managing their savings and bank accounts efficient and a lot more simple. From a trust perspective they are also the only ones who have any kind of access to their accounts.

Then it’s THE networking lunch

Drinks and informal networking 11.45am – 12.30pm

From 12.30pm your 2 course served lunch – you sit with other decision makers – none of whom do what you do. There is a table host at each table and you have a 3 minute presentation to do for the others around your table – enthuse and inspire and build relationships. PLUS you have an Event Programme & seating plan which lists everyone attending , their name, business name and what their business does and importantly what table they are sat on enabling you to network with other – more business building opportunities!
