Open daily from 10am to 10pm, the three new branches, at the Bukit Bintang monorail station, Balakong and Taman Melawati, are recognisable by the “Xpres” sign. The branches come equipped with ATMs, cash deposit machines and other conveniences. In addition, there is round-the-clock security.
Branch staffs are available at all times from 10am to 10pm to assist with transactions requiring human interaction, such as for account openings and applications for financing and wealth management products.
Among the products available are the popularManarat Home-i Financing, Cash-i Personal Financing, Wafi-i Deposit Account andi-Great Bakti Takaful.
OCBC Al-Amin Director & CEO Syed Abdull Aziz Syed Kechik unveiled the Bank’s new logo, which maintains it strong links with the parent brand whilst adding a touch of Islamic design to it. The “A” in Al-Amin is stylised like the arches of famous Islamic monuments like Alhambra in Spain and the Taj Mahal in India, marrying Islamic symbolism with modern typography.
In conjunction with the openings, the Bank will be holding promotional activities for its personal and home financing offerings.
