Doha, April 15, 2014
Al Khaliji France, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Qatar-based Al Khalij Commercial Bank, has launched its ‘Premium Banking’ service to premium customers in the UAE.
Al khaliji France’s Premium Banking is a service-led proposition which delivers competitive loans, accounts and cards, and experience for a premium banking customer, said a statement.
Robin McCall, CEO, said: "The launch of Premium Banking in the UAE reinforces al khaliji’s strategy of serving our customers of choice. Premium Banking has been extremely successful in our home market of Qatar, and with the UAE as our second home and an important growth market, extending our proposition to the UAE is a natural step for us."
The individual customers who meet the ‘Premium Banking’ criteria will enjoy a service that includes a dedicated relationship manager, preferential product rates, doorstep banking and multiple e-banking channels, which will combine to give a personalised and enjoyable customer experience allowing busy people the luxury of banking convenience.
The product proposition includes the World MasterCard Credit Card which gives customers up to five per cent cash back on all purchases, free lounge access at selected airports within the UAE and the GCC, free 24/7 concierge service providing assistance anywhere in the world, Schengen-compliant travel insurance and a host of other features.
The customers will also be offered preferential loan rates, earn up to 1.75 per cent interest on their Fusion account (a current account that pays interest monthly) while being able to access their funds at any ATM across the UAE without any charges.
Kelvin Tayfield, head of banking, UAE, said: “Our unique approach will give our customers individually tailored products and services to meet their universal banking needs. We aim to bring al khaliji’s popular and award-winning Premium Banking experience to our preferred customers in the UAE.”
The service will be available in the Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah and Ras Al-Khaimah branches, he added. - TradeArabia News Service
