Can better banking make you happier? If bad banking makes you unhappy, then what about the reverse?
We have all heard the famous adage, “money can’t buy happiness”, but what if the bank you chose had something to do with your happiness in life?

Isn’t it a good feeling to look at your account and see that you have more money than you thought, or see the money you earned just from interest?
