HNB Bank PLC announced the continued expansion of its extensive Customer Centre network with the launch of a new, fully- automated, Electronic Banking Centre together with a new Priority Circle branch at its Kurunegala customer service centre.

Commenting on the upscaling of its value proposition in the Kurunegala region, HNB, Manging Director/CEO Jonathan Alles said: “In addition to serving as the commercial capital of the North Western Province, Kurunegala is also renowned for well-established industry and enterprise – being home to two of Sri Lanka’s most active graphite mines while also serving as a regional hub for coconut cultivation.

“We believe that if provided with the right mix of optimized banking services and innovative, personalised products, HNB can further assist in the development of economic opportunity, while supporting retail customers to uplift their standard of living and pursue their ambitions.

Our goal with the establishment of our latest Priority Circle and the parallel launch of our extensive array of digital services is to deliver banking beyond transactions. In this regard, we look forward to partnering with corporate and retail customers in the region to ensure that the Kurunegala region is able to reach its highest potential.”

HNB Business cards were also presented to several of the bank’s top enterprise customers from the Kurunegala region.

They are designed to empower enterprises with complete digitisation and comprehensive, secure management of organisational transactions, in partnership with Mastercard.

The card can be authorised as a substitute to petty cash payments, and is capable of handling any transaction locally and internationally excluding payment for the import of goods for commercial purposes.

HNB’s state-of-the-art new Electronic Banking Centre will offer a complete range of banking and electronic banking facilities to corporate and retail clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; including automated cheque deposits, real time transactions, digital account opening facilities and much more.

Meanwhile, the bank’s exclusive Priority Circle facility will enable a new paradigm in retail banking in the region; providing a comprehensive range of services that offers the bank’s most exclusive customers an host of valuable benefits including access to attractive interest rates on deposits and advances, a free travel card, internet and mobile banking facilities, competitive rates on foreign currency issuance, and a comprehensive range of Wealth and Legal advisory services.
