Bank Islam opens another branch at KL Sentral
KUALA LUMPUR: Bank Islam Malaysia Bhd has extended its network by opening another branch and a Bureau De Change (BDC) outlet at Kuala Lumpur Sentral (KL Sentral), the country's largest transit hub.
Managing director Datuk Seri Zukri Samat said the expansion is part of the bank's strategic business initiatives to stay ahead of the market and remain relevant in an increasingly competitive environment.
He said besides providing customers with syariah-based products and services, the new branch will bring banking and financial services to the doorstep of business owners in the building and in the vicinity.
"The bank is also playing the role of helping the government promote the country as an international hub for Islamic finance," Zukri said in a statement on Sunday.
The new branch, dubbed KL Sentral 2, is headed by Roslina Bujang and assisted by a team of nine executives. The branch has self-service terminals, including ATMs and cash deposit and cheque deposit machines.
Zukri said Bank Islam has opened three new branches for the 2013 financial year and targets to open four more nationwide by year-end.
Bank Islam now has 131 branches, eight consumer business centres, six Ar-Rahnu branches and six BDC outlets in Malaysia.
