Stanbic IBTC Thrills Stakeholders With ‘RetireFit’ Session

In recognition of the importance of the wellbeing of its customers, Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC on Saturday, 11 September 2021 held a fitness session that covers different facets of all existing or potential retirees who want to enjoy the benefits of their retirement.

Over 150 stakeholders attended the virtual event, which featured seasoned resource people who shared their insights on how workers might plan for life-fulfilling retirement.

Demola Sogunle, Stanbic IBTC Holdings' Chief Executive, extolled the participants for their willingness to explore what will make them live lives without regrets before and after retirement while speaking at the virtual event dubbed "RetireFit 1.0" and hosted by Nigerian award-winning actress Kate Henshaw.

"It warms my heart to see so many of you logged on to participate in today’s fitness session. On behalf of all of us at Stanbic IBTC, I say a big thank you and welcome. It is 9 am, and you could be in bed getting the much needed rest after a long work week. We are delighted that you have chosen to share a part of your morning with us instead."

"At Stanbic IBTC, we recognise that keeping fit is an essential part of your wellbeing journey, hence, our reason for organising this event. As the theme implies, “RetireFit” is our attempt to encourage as many people as possible to adopt a healthy lifestyle that optimises their wellbeing  beyond their active work life. To us, retiring fit incorporates healthy living, being physically active with strategic financial planning for the future", he said.

"We already run virtual Financial Fitness sessions where we provide our clients with relevant insights to help them make informed financial decisions, maximise their earnings today and secure their livelihoods in their post-work lives.

"We are taking it a step further to give you the opportunity to physically practice some of the health and  wellbeing  tips we share at those sessions. This we hope will be a clear reminder to pay attention to self-care and be physically active just as we mind our money. Our sole desire is to see more people become physically and financially fit, as these two factors contribute to the general health and wellbeing of our clients", he added.

During the session, Kemen Fitness took the participants through a not-too-rigorous workout session to get the blood pumping, while experts afterwards shared tips on optimising their wellbeing and wealth. 

Jide Allo, Head-Private & Institutional Clients at Stanbic IBTC, also advised participants on the need to start creating social safety net as early as possible, as pension is very important for everyone.
