Having introduced the convenience of Extended Banking hours last year for its customers at selected high traffic branches, Amãna Bank has expanded this service to an additional 5 branches.
Starting last month, Amãna Bank’s Ladies (Colombo 3), Kinniya, Puttalam, Negombo and Badulla branches will be open for business up to 4.00pm on weekdays. Prior to this Extended Banking up to 4.00pm was available at the Bank’s Main Branch in Colombo 3, Dehiwala, Kandy and Kattankudy branches, while Pettah branch operations was available up to 6.00pm. Speaking on this initiative the Bank’s Vice President – Operations and Business Support, Mr M M S Quvylidh, said “We found that many customers benefited from the initial extended banking hour initiative and wanted the same convenience of banking beyond regular hours to a few other high traffic branches.”

Powered by the stability and the support of its strategic shareholders, Bank Islam Malaysia Berhad, The Islamic Development Bank based in Saudi Arabia and AB Bank in Bangladesh, Amãna Bank is making inroads within the Sri Lankan banking industry and is focused on capitalizing the growing market potential for the unique banking model across the country.
