Kuala Lumpur, Thursday, 5 January 2017: - In a joint statement, The Association of Banks in Malaysia (ABM), Association of Islamic Banking Institutions Malaysia (AIBIM) and Association of Development Finance Institutions of Malaysia (ADFIM) wish to assure members of the public that their member financial institutions (FIs) will be pro-actively assisting customers, be they individuals or businesses, affected by the recent floods in several states across Malaysia.
FIs with operations in the flood stricken states understand it is crucial for affected households and businesses to have access to their finances, thus they will ensure that basic banking services will be made available. The FIs have allocated substantial resources to ensure that over-the-counter services are available and self-service machines such as the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) and Cheque/Cash Deposit Machine (CDM) are functioning so that access to basic banking services are not interrupted.
As in previous years, FIs will be extending a helping hand during this challenging period by providing solutions and assistance to customers based on their individual financial circumstances. Affected customers are advised to contact their respective financial institution(s) for consultation with regard to their banking issues which may arise due to the recent floods.
