Fincare SFB allows non-resident Indian (NRI) customers to open a Fixed Deposit with 9% p.a. interest which is one of the highest amongst banks
Fincare Small Finance Bank launched its NRI Banking services today, on the sidelines of the inauguration of its 4th outlet in Ahmedabad at Prahalad Nagar. The choice of Ahmedabad is significant, considering that the Gujarati community contributes to nearly 33% of the Indian diaspora, making Gujarat home to one of the largest NRI bases in the country. The offerings are available pan India.
With a tagline, ‘Feel at home, a thousand miles away’, Fincare SFB’s NR product allows NRI customers to deposit their overseas earnings in India. The account can be opened either by visiting the branch or by bank officials visiting the customer at their convenience, during their visit home to India.
NR Product Features:
- 9% interest p.a. on NR Fixed Deposits – one of the highest interest rates offered among banks in this segment
- Flexibility on interest payments options such as reinvestment FDs and periodic interest payout
- No hassle of maintaining multiple accounts – this allows NRs to open Fixed Deposits without the hassle of opening a savings account and credit the maturity proceeds to any bank account of choice
The bank will be introducing the complete basket of NRI products over the next few months.
In a press statement, Mr. Rajeev Yadav, MD & CEO, Fincare SFB said, “With continuous effort on growth and diversification, the launch of NR product is a step towards offering a vast array of products to our customers. Given the bank’s deep presence in some of the key NRI markets such as Gujarat, and as Gujarat’s home grown bank, we are seeing an encouraging demand for the newly launched products, especially in this NR homecoming season. We welcome NRs to come and experience Fincare SFB’s NR banking services.”
