Fidelity Bank Plc hasÂ opened four new branch offices in the Lagos metropolis to bring the bankâ€™s total branch network strength to 150, nationwide within a space of one week.
The new Lagos branches are located in Ojota, Egbeda, Alagbdo and FESTAC Town in a deliberate effort to meet the growing demand for the bankâ€™s robust services and attractive bouquet of products.
Analysts predict that banks like Fidelity that have survived the recent scare in the banking sector will be in demand in the New Year and beyond as the market responds to fundamental changes in the economic system.
Fidelity has been consistent on the growth path, setting up new retail outlets and declaring a dividend at a time when most players in the industry are experiencing some challenges.
According to Chief Willie Obiano, Executive Director (Business Banking), the four new branches were established in fulfillment of the assurances of the bankâ€™s management to shareholders that Fidelity would continue to its drive to make financial services easy and accessible to its customers.
Chief Obiano who spoke on behalf of the Managing Director, Mr. Reginald Ihejiahi at the commissioning of FESTAC Town branch office at the weekend assured the bankâ€™s growing customer base that the bank is â€œpoised to serve in the area of banking services ranging from partnering with you in your businesses to advisory servicesâ€.
According to him, the bankâ€™s Savings products were designed to meet the needs of both the youths and elderly â€œwho are looking for convenient places to keep their hard earned savings while our multiple funds transfer platforms will enable residents of the respective neighborhoods easy access to their transfers from Diaspora and within Nigeriaâ€.
He further observed that the bankâ€™s decision to locate branches in select neighborhoods was not only strategic but timely. â€œOur numerous existing customers and prospects now have a neighborhood branch to operate from and should make Fidelity Bank Plc their choice bank.â€
