Heritage Bank, the newest player in the Nigerian banking sector, has opened its first two branches in Marina, Lagos and Dugbe in Ibadan, Oyo State.

While the Marina branch went on stream mid-March, the Ibadan office opened for business in the first week of April.

Describing the development as momentous, the Chief Executive Officer, Heritage Bank, Mr. Ifie Sekibo, said in a statement made available to our correspondent that the Nigerian banking landscape had now been primed to witness great development and innovation, especially in the deployment of technology to give the banking public a fresh experience.

He said, “This is the dawn of a new day in the banking industry as we make history with the full establishment of Heritage Bank. It is a new day that births our offering of trans-generational significance as we commit to helping Nigerians create, nurture and transfer wealth to the significant others in their lives.

“With the inauguration of our operational branches, we have signed up to the charter of establishing a bank that is tuned to the discipline of global best practices and the passion of delivering transformational experiences for everyone that honours us with their custom.

“Our commitment will always be to harness what you have and grow it into what it can be with you and your generations’ security in view.”

Sekibo equally pledged the bank’s determination to work with each customer to create a name and heritage for the present and future generations.

He said, “At Heritage Bank, each guest is unique in all respects and our pledge is to bring you into a world of financial services designed with a deep understanding of your needs and wants.

“Our people have signed up to the charter of getting knitted to the personal lifestyle of each individual and we are wired with the passion of delivering five-star experience and exposure at every point of contact with our clients.

“For all classes of our customers, either at the individual or institutional level, we present a pledge to surpass expectations. We have simplified banking and with our innovative financial products, your money can perform at its maximum potential”.

The Chairman of the bank, Mr. Akinsola Akinfemiwa, said it would readily offer help to SMEs in the area of structuring their operations to be able to access credit for growth, development and sustenance.

Akinfemiwa further pledged that the bank would assist in project financing and revenue collection in Oyo State, adding that the management chose Ibadan as the first place to open a branch outside Lagos due to its significance to the South-West and its enterprising populace.

 He said more branches, which the bank would call ‘Experience Centres,’ would be opened in Abuja and Port Harcourt, and other parts of the country soon.
