In support of customers managing global fund transfers during the movement control order period related to COVID-19
Kuala Lumpur: CIMB Bank Berhad and CIMB Islamic Bank Berhad (collectively “CIMB” or “the Bank”) announced an extension to the current SpeedSend Zero Fee programme, which will now see zero fees being charged for fund transfers to all partner banks and remitting agents in all overseas corridors within the SpeedSend network. This is exclusively for transactions carried out via CIMB Clicks.
This programme, effective 2 April and ongoing until 30 April, will enable customers to transfer funds with zero transaction fees to several countries including the UK, eight ASEAN countries, USA, Australia, Europe, India, Nepal and Bangladesh. The funds will be transferred, instantly to some countries, and credited directly to the recipient’s account or collected as cash. Each customer is allowed to send a minimum of RM30 and up to a maximum of RM10,000 per day via CIMB Clicks.
Datuk Mohd Nasir Ahmad, Chairman of CIMB Group said, “We have proactively taken this opportunity to provide greater convenience and support to our customers during the current MCO observation period. As a financial institution that prioritises our customers and communities, we are cognisant of the current situation and hope this will help our customers make urgent and immediate cross border transfers to friends, family and other counterparts from the safety and comfort of their own homes.”
