He went further to inform the gathering that since coming into the country they have introduced various products and services into the market, leveraging on their exceptional customer service delivery. He said this has consistently earned them a positive public perception.
The new branches would deliver a wide range of universal banking services to corporate, commercial, and individual customers including treasury and financial services, international banking operations and trade finance, as well as funds management.
The MD said the bank would also utilize its state-of-the-art Information and Communication Technology (ICT) platform to provide unique electronic banking services, including ATM, Internet banking, and electronic payment solutions.
