Banif Bank has this week celebrated its 5th birthday. 5 years ago on January 21, 2008, Banif opened its doors to customers, and officially started operations from its first branch in St Julians. Since then, the Bank has expanded its footprint to nine retail branches and a corporate and business banking unit, and rapidly grew its customer base. The Bank is driven by a strong team of over 150 employees and offers customers and businesses a wide range of innovative products and services. In its five years of operations, Banif has received international recognition by World Finance in 2010 and 2011, and become the driving force behind the biggest solidarity event in Malta.
“We’re proud to have achieved significant business goals in a very short time,” said Joaquim F. Silva Pinto, Chief Executive Officer, Banif Bank (Malta) plc. “This would not have been possible without the commitment, hard work, loyalty and dedication of our staff, and the trust that customers have put in us. The future is bright and we are upbeat and optimistic. 2013 is a very important year for the Bank. We will expand our branch network and continue investing in our human resources and in our other core operations. We are looking at a year of developments that will shape our future, grow our business and strengthen our position in the market. We will continue contributing to the Maltese economy, creating lucrative opportunities and extending support to the community we operate in.”
Bank staff enjoys breakfast on the house
To kick-start a series of events that will celebrate the Bank’s 5th anniversary and mark 5 successful years, the Bank surprised staff with a tasty breakfast on its birthday, as a gesture of appreciation for the team’s hard work that drives the Bank’s operations. Freshly baked croissants, bagels and berry smoothies found their way to desks early in the morning, so that employees could start an otherwise bleak and rainy Monday with a well-deserved treat.
Bank rewards customers with Super Banif@st Term Deposit offer
And to celebrate its birthday with customers, Banif Bank offered its clients a limited offer Super Banif@st Term Deposit that boasted a lucrative term and rate of interest. Banif reserves its best offers for its customers, and the product was only available to clients, who applied for the term deposit account through the Bank’s Banif@st internet banking.
Banif Bank will, this year, continue to celebrate its 5 years of success with employees, customers and other stakeholders.
