Gone are the days when you could only do your banking during the week, at a bank
branch, between certain hours.

Now, with the National's flexible and convenient banking options you can do your banking whenever and wherever it is convenient for you.

They can be used to do a variety of banking transactions including making additional home loan or personal loan repayments, paying your credit card account,checking account transactions and transferring funds between accounts.

uninpeded savings transit


Explanation:
Freizügigkeit is a term used by pension funds to indicate that, when an employer leaves the company, his savings will be transferred to his new employer or to a blocked bank account. In this case, unimpeded savings transit would apply.
