Our Skye Global Account is an all-in-one account that is perfect for Nigerians living abroad, wishing to maintain investments and savings in Nigeria.. It has the features of savings and current account as well as optional facilities for deposit placement. With this account, you will enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing you no longer have to worry about the safety of your financial transactions in Nigeria.
It differs from a Regular Domiciliary Account in that it is targeted towards transactions and investments exclusively within Nigeria, while customers can monitor their account activities and issue instructions from anywhere in the world.
As a Skye Global account holder, an account manager will be assigned to you to handle all transactions on your account and resolve any queries that you may have.
