According to a release, the introduction of the online account opening channel reflects the financial institution’s commitment to giving Jamaicans opportunities to access the financial sector. The new channel is accessible at www.sagicor.com.
“As the world navigates the global health pandemic, Sagicor Bank continues to innovate and introduce ideas that will ensure the safety of our clients and team members as we conduct business. This portal will allow clients the opportunity to have a Sagicor Bank account within 48 hours of submitting an application,” Chorvelle Johnson Cunningham, CEO, Sagicor Bank said.
“It simplifies the account opening process and gives clients an opportunity to conduct business at their own convenience,” she added.
In addition to providing convenient services to clients, Johnson Cunningham pointed out that this initiative achieves Sagicor Bank’s objective of limiting in-branch interactions in a bid to curtail the spread of the novel coronavirus.
The process, she explained, will see clients completing an application form on the website and uploading their required documents to supplement the application. Following verification, a representative of the bank will schedule a virtual meeting with the client via a videoconferencing platform. A branch visit will only be required for clients to collect their debit cards.
