Note to Editors
AFFINBANK – Banking Without Barriers™
Affin Bank Berhad (AFFINBANK) is
a wholly-owned subsidiary of Affin Holdings Berhad which is listed
on Bursa Malaysia Kuala Lumpur.
AFFINBANK is the first bank in Malaysia
to introduce a new banking concept that signifies the evolution
of the traditional branch concept. Based on the theme ‘Banking
Without Barriers’™, the concept does away with the ubiquitous
teller counters to give way to new ‘counter-less’ banking
hall that is equipped with a lounge, a plasma TV, an internet corner
and coffee machines where customers are greeted personally, queues
are short and transactions are conducted more discreetly.
AFFINBANK commenced operations in
January 2001 following a merger between the former Perwira Affin
Bank Berhad and BSN Commercial (M) Berhad in August 2000. Currently,
it has a network of 72 branches nationwide and following its recent
merger with the former Affin-ACF Finance Berhad on June 1st 2005,
the total strength of branches has expanded to 106.
The Bank serves both retail and corporate
customers. Consumer Banking provides credit cards, personal loans,
mortgages and deposit taking services to individuals. Meanwhile,
Enterprise Banking offers corporations, institutional clients and
SMEs services in corporate banking, contract financing and trade
finance. With the merger with the former Affin-ACF Finance Berhad,
the Bank is now also able to offer HP financing in addition to retail
and corporate products.
