Responsibility and business

A. my money - my responsibility:

A bank is simply the agent that keeps your money safe and performs transactions as requested by a client. It remains your responsibility to manage your money.

When you open an account at a bank, the bank will send you a monthly bank statement to inform you of what you did with your money during the previous month and what your balance was at the end of that month.

With the help of your friend, study the following bank statement and decide whether Mr De Klerk has managed his money responsibly.

How is money made available to the client, and what is the quality of the attention a bank offers its clients?

  1. Information brochures

Most commercial banks offer a large selection of colourful brochures that explain the facilities available to their clients. There are brochures or pamphlets that tell the clients more about:

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
