Bandhan Bank, which had started just a few years ago as a micro-finance company to empower women coming from poor financial backgrounds, joined hands with Standard Chartered Bank to offer credit card facility to its customers.
The bank celebrated its 4th anniversary on Friday, August 23. UK Sinha, former Chairman, Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), graced the occasion as chief guest and delivered the Anniversary Lecture, Who’s Afraid of Capital Markets?
Commenting on the occasion, Sinha said, “I was happy to be a part of Bandhan Bank’s Foundation Day. I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to deliver the Anniversary Lecture. Bandhan Bank has been making headlines for all the right reasons. It’s also great to see them expand their product suite to address customer needs. I’m delighted to see the growth the bank is witnessing and I wish them the best for the future.”
On Friday, the bank launched a new savings account, Elite, for high-deposit customers. The Elite International Debit Card offers free insurance coverage for customers and a host of lifestyle privileges, such as airport lounge access, among others. The Elite account also provides unlimited digital and ATM transactions, along with preferential handling of banking service requests.
‘As we complete four years as a universal bank today, I feel grateful for the love, support and trust we’ve received from all corners of the country. It’s a big day for us as we launched a credit card range in partnership with Standard Chartered bank and also added a premium savings account to our product suite. I thank our esteemed customers and shareholders for believing in the Bandhan Bank story’
