1ADB refers to Average Daily Balance, which is defined as the sum of the daily end-of-day balances in the account for a month divided by the number of days in that month. The formula for computing ADB is as follows:
ADB = (Day 1 ending balance + Day 2 ending balance + Day 30/31 ending balance)
Number of days in the month (i.e. 30/31 days)
2Daily Balance is equivalent to end-of-day balance.
3Monthly Service Charge applies if account falls below the required minimum average daily balance for two consecutive months.
4Dormancy charge is collected only if dormant account’s balance has fallen below the required minimum average daily balance (ADB). Account will be considered dormant if there is no client-initiated transaction within 2 years from conversion.
