We have been punished over the years with various build-a-bank names which play upon famous film franchises (remember The Empire Strikes Bank…and its sequel…Return of the Jedi’s Cheque?) but we have to admit that Banchorman: The Ledger Continues really pays dividends. It works so well that we have forwarded the photos and promotional pieces to Dreamworks, the movie’s production company, and they said that their lawyers will soon be in touch…obviously to congratulate Mr.Trenier and his TYs! In the meantime enjoy the pics below of the bank’s launch. The professionals from AIB were around to provide shrewd advice and to assure due diligence but the show was all the boys’ alone, as Tomás Clancy, Hugh Downes, Eve Harvey-Graham, Ian O’Neill, Jonathan Dillon and Stephen Allen launched their student bank with consummate skill and a good bit of panache. The competitions and freebies drew the youngsters in and, like with many a third-mortgage-taker in days gone by, when the smoke had cleared and the confetti had settled, the signatures were somehow on the bottom line! Seriously, a generous bonus was provided by AIB for openers of student accounts and it was a win-win situation: the TY boys gained valuable business experience and the general student body got a whiff of the financial sector’s profits while still learning the value of saving and austerity.
