Dubai, January 8, 2012
Standard Chartered has launched a new facility which allows existing customers to open Islamic and conventional savings and fixed deposit accounts through its online banking platform, Straight2Bank.
The customer’s account of choice will be opened instantly and can be viewed and managed online. Customers only need to have an active online banking ID which can also be done instantly through the bank’s website, the bank said.
Mohamed Al Mazemi, general manager, distribution, Standard Chartered Middle East, said: “Standard Chartered has been launching several initiatives which are aimed at providing its customers with a secure, fast and convenient banking service. We have been developing our online banking platform to better serve our customers where we have introduced local and international fund transfers services and bill payment facilities for Etisalat, Salik, Dewa, Sewa, ADDC & AADC. The account opening facility is another addition to the suite of convenient online banking services that we provide our customers.”
Standard Chartered has been operating in the UAE since 1958 and has the largest distribution network among international banks with 11 branches, three electronic banking units and over 130 ATMs and CDMs. – TradeArabia News Service
