Cape Town - In a response to a Fin24 user's claim that Nedbank is ripping him off with fee increases, the bank on Friday said that its retail average fee increase for this year was 6%, in line with inflation.

Fin24 user Grant Mitchell wrote to our newly launched MyFin24 section, stating that while everyone is celebrating Nedbank's results, he would "do a little exercise to show how they are screwing (sic) their customers with fee increases".

In a written response to Fin24, Sibongiseni Ngundze, managing executive: retail relationship banking, said Nedbank encourages clients to reduce their charges by transacting through more cost effective channels.

"Nedbank offers value in both pay-as-you-use (PAYU) pricing (for lower volume requirements) and in-bundled or capped alternatives (for higher transacting volume behaviour).

"Nedbank actively engages with our clients for them to reduce their fees by selecting the right product and pricing plan to suit their needs, providing free on-line saving tools and a pricing call centre.

"Our on-line savings tools and tips on how to save on fees by transacting via more cost-effective channels, can be accessed here or (clients can call) on 0860 555 111.

"We will be engaging with Mr Mitchell to understand his specific needs and transacting behaviour and will help him to reduce his fees by recommending the best product and pricing plan for his needs."
