Amãna Bank has introduced the convenience of Online Account Opening to facilitate its customers with an easy and time saving method of opening an account without going through the hassle of writing on forms. Introduced as a part of the Bank’s digitization strategy, the Online Account Opening platform is accessible on the Bank’s website www.amanabank.lk, which allows potential customers to seamlessly open General Savings Accounts, Ladies Savings Accounts & Senior Citizen Savings Accounts without compromising customer privacy as well as other regulatory requirements. As the customer can conveniently access the online account opening platform at the comfort of their home or office at any time of the day, customers can reduce their waiting time at the branch. Customers choosing the Online Account Opening option are not required to submit their NIC or address verification and billing proof documents over the counter as they will be able to easily upload such documents on the online platform. Once the customer successfully submits the online form, they even have the option of requesting a Branch officer to visit the customer for signature and verification.
Commenting on this initiative, the Bank’s Vice President – Retail Banking & Marketing Siddeeque Akbar said “We are pleased to introduce the convenience of online account opening, where at the click of a few buttons, a customer can initiate the account opening process, irrespective of where he or she is. I am confident that our customers will enjoy and appreciate this timely and convenient initiative”
