With the objective of providing an enhanced banking experience to its valued customers, MCB Bank recently relocated and declared open its newly upgraded Galle branch. The branch was initially opened in 2013 as the second outstation branch of MCB Sri Lanka operations.

MCB Galle branch, now located at the heart of the town, enjoys a greater visibility, and is designed with the concept of modern branch banking and follows a corporate branding theme across all MCB overseas branches.

Over a period of 5 years, the branch has expanded its customer base and achieved a moderate growth in business. ‘During the recent years, we have significantly invested in our branch network, technology and people. The newly upgraded Galle branch is yet another example of our commitment towards our customers, and to contribute to the enhancement of the banking industry in the country,’ said Aali Shafi.

Highlighting the overall performance of MCB Sri Lanka, Aali said despite the fact that 2018 was a challenging year for the entire banking industry in the country, MCB has been able to achieve a considerable growth in its balance sheet and profitability.
