If your plan this year is unlocking financial stability and building a good financial habit then this is for you. We are delving into the essentials of Monthly Savings Plans, the advantages, tips for starting and maintaining them.


There are different types of monthly savings plans in Nigeria and knowing the one that exactly fits you is important to cultivate a sustainable monthly savings habit

  1. Bank Savings  Accounts: A Bank Savings Account is a type of deposit account offered by banks and financial institutions. It allows individuals to deposit money, earn interest on their deposits, and withdraw funds when needed. 
  2. Target Savings Accounts: Have specific goals in mind, such as buying a car or saving for your child’s education? Target Savings Accounts allow you to allocate funds specifically for those goals. This type of account, known as an Endowment plan in insurance, offers additional protection. In the event of an unfortunate occurrence like death or permanent disability, it ensures that the target amount is paid to your beneficiaries, regardless of whether you have completed your contributions toward the target amount.
  3. Rotating Savings and Credit Associations (ROSCAs): Ever participated in an “ajo” or “esusu”? It’s like a savings club with friends or family. Everyone contributes regularly, and each member takes turns receiving a lump sum. It’s a communal way to save and support each other financially.


  1. Discipline and Consistency: With Monthly Savings Plans, you commit to regular contributions, which instills discipline and helps you build a savings habit. It’s like setting aside a portion of your income each month for future needs.
  2. Interest Accumulation: Your money doesn’t just sit idle in your savings plan; it earns interest over time, helping your savings grow faster. It’s like planting seeds that yield a harvest of financial rewards.
  3. Goal Achievement: Whether it’s saving for a dream vacation, a new home, or your children’s education, Monthly Savings Plans help you stay focused and make progress toward your goals. 
  4. Risk Mitigation: Diversified savings plans like Mutual Funds spread your investments across different assets, reducing the impact of market fluctuations and minimizing risk. This way you do not put all your eggs in one basket.
