Among the initiatives taken to draw customers include personal takaful protection and a chance to win prizes through monthly and yearly lucky draw sessions.
During the five-month launch period, 1,566 prizes will be given away to customers. The grand prize is a house worth RM1mil.
Zest-i customers also stand a chance of winning a Honda HRV hybrid, holiday or umrah packages, Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy Watch, MacBook Pro and RM1,000 worth of general investment Account-i certificates.
The first Maybank Islamic Zest-i prize-giving ceremony was held at Menara Maybank, Kuala Lumpur.

Zest-i is a low-risk investment account product that follows the shariah contract of mudarabah. The funds are invested in a blended portfolio of retail and non-retail assets to provide stable returns payable on a monthly basis.
Maybank Islamic chief executive officer Datuk Mohamed Rafique Merican said the product was launched in September.
“Zest-i is open to individuals above 18 with an initial placement of only RM50. Starting in January, those below 18 will also be eligible.

“Zest-i is the first product to offer a permanent prize draw feature as we want to create excitement.
“We hope that those who are interested in Zest-i and see its products as fitting in with their investment requirements would open an account because other than the chance to win prizes, we also provide complimentary personal accident takaful coverage of up to RM50,000, ” said Rafique.
