In a statement, chief executive officer Mona Suraya Kamaruddin said the bank has become the first investment bank in Malaysia to offer a fully online account opening service using a smart, simple and secure system that is neatly packaged in eInvest Go.
“This is a strong addition to the bank’s existing suite of investment services, using cutting-edge technology that will enable us to cater to an even wider range of investor profiles.
