SECURITY Bank Corp. announced it would open six new branches this year, despite uncertainty over government’s response to the rising Covid-19 infection rate.
This the bank said in a statement released last Monday after announcing the opening of its newest branch in Eton Centris in Quezon City.
The opening coincides with the first day of an enhanced community quarantine that orders non-essential businesses to stop operating until April 4.
“Eton Centris is a dynamic commercial center in Quezon City. It also serves as a transportation hub and is close to many private institutions, government agencies, and thriving residential areas,” Executive Vice-President and Branch Banking Group Head Leslie Y. Cham was quoted in a statement as saying.
“It is a privilege for our bank to have a presence in this area both because it presents new opportunities for growth and for us to bring our mission to enrich lives, empower businesses and build communities closer to Filipinos,” she added.
As of March 11, Security Bank has a total of 314 bank branches and 788 Automated Teller Machines nationwide.
