Heartland Bank’s Direct Call Account Gets Five Stars, Again

Heartland Bank’s Direct Call Account Gets Five Stars, Again

Heartland Bank is pleased to announce that its Direct Call Account has again been recognised as a 5-star Outstanding Value Savings Product by Canstar under both its regular and flexible saver classifications.

This is the third year running that Heartland’s Direct Call Account has been awarded a 5-star rating from Canstar.

Heartland’s Head of Retail, Mel Cadman, says the recognition is welcome and demonstrates the bank’s dedication to providing Kiwis with a saving option that provides flexibility and a great rate.

“We know our customers work hard to make their money and they’re looking for an account that has a great interest rate and the flexibility to access their funds at any time.

“It’s great to be able to provide our customers with the best of both worlds. It goes without saying that we’re delighted that Canstar’s team of analysts have recognised this too,” says Mel Cadman.

Canstar’s Star Ratings are unique and its teams have evaluated thousands of products offered by New Zealand financial institutions, comparing price and features to determine what represents value.
