Diamond to explore new opportunities
Diamond Bank Plc has announced that the bank has positioned its business module to become more robust in order to leverage opportunities from the new dispensation.
Addressing Journalists at a press briefing in Lagos at the weekend, the Group Managing Director of the Bank, Uzoma Dozie Pascal, who expressed optimism that the bank would emerge the best retail bank in Nigeria in a near future, said the bank has rolled out new technology solutions that would sustain it in its new market.
He pledged the bank’s commitment to continually offer value-added solutions that conveniently fit into the lifestyle of its customers as an innovative and technologically driven financial institution, adding that the bank has introduced several novel solutions that have transformed the Nigerian banking space.
Speaking on the Diamond Mobile App solution, Dozie explained that the solution was recently upgraded with a ‘Touch ID’ feature, which allows users seamless log on to their accounts by simply identifying their fingerprints as an alternative to entering a User ID and password.
The feature, available on the device, according to him, marked the introduction of the service in Nigeria and also positioned Diamond Bank as an innovative institution that is progressively changing the face of banking in Nigeria with best-in-class customer-focused solutions.
“It is safe, easy to use and specifically developed for the success minded individual who are focused on maximizing all life’s moments whenever or wherever they are.”
Other features of the Diamond Mobile App include funds transfer, bills payment, events ticket purchase, movie tickets purchase, online shopping, wallet top-up as well as searching, booking and making payment for both local and international flights.
“We have one of the lowest cost of fund in the industry. We are rated number 37 in terms of credit card issuing in Africa and Middle East. When you create an enabling environment, more people will be financially included into the system and that is what we are doing,” he said.
