The “W” is not a product, rather it is a blend of existing banking products and services bundled to effectively meet the present-day financial and lifestyle needs of women in identified sub-segments, as well as provide them with complete and rewarding banking experience. The W, based on peculiarities and lifestyle classification, is segmented into the following;

Young Professional
W and Family
W in business
MHSS – Maternal Health Service Support
They believe that women are a powerful and key catalyst for change. They know and embrace the truth about empowering women. The W initiative does not only benefit women, but also the men in their lives; as they are either directly or indirectly impacted through the women in their lives who have benefitted from the W.

The “W” is the home for everything Access Bank offers women and is open to all women irrespective of who they bank with.
