The Islamic Active Saver is a Sharia compliant Mudaraba based savings account product. It is designed in a manner that it is to be operated exclusively online on ADCB Personal Internet Banking. This makes your account accessible anytime, anywhere. Furthermore, due to higher weightages assigned to this type of account, the expected rate of profit to be earned under this account is higher than the other Mudaraba based savings accounts.
The Islamic Active Saver account does not have a minimum balance requirement or monthly fees, allowing more savings. The account can only be opened online (Apply Online), with an initial deposit of One Thousand Dirhams.
You can setup up to 5 Islamic Active Saver Accounts through ADCB Personal Internet Banking.
Profit is calculated in accordance with the Sharia approved profit distribution mechanism and paid on a quarterly basis upon the approval from Internal Shari’ah Supervision Committee (ISSC). Profit is paid as per the weightages assigned to various tiers dependent on the daily balance maintained. If the daily balance in the account changes tier, the profit is calculated using the corresponding weightages assigned to that specific tier. So, the higher the account balance, the more the profit you are expected to earn.
