Bandar Seri Begawan, 13 September 2013 – In the spirit of Silaturrahim, Baiduri Bank Group hosted a magnificent banquet for its customers and business associates at Indera Samudra Grand Hall, The Empire Hotel & Country Club this evening.

The Guest of Honour for the event was Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Muda Abdul Fattaah, who is a member of the Board of Directors at Baiduri Bank.

In his welcoming address, Mr Pierre Imhof, CEO of Baiduri Bank, expressed his appreciation to the guests for their support during the past year and outlined the events that have shaped Baiduri Bank Group over the past year.

Among others, he cited the launch of two new products: the Smart Executive Programme designed for working professionals; and the Baiduri Student Account named "4U Value Pack" catering to students studying both locally and overseas. 

In keeping with the latest global trends, Baiduri Bank launched two mobile apps, namely the Personal i-Banking Mobile App and Baiduri Deals. The Baiduri Deals is a marketing app where users can have access to the latest news, promotions and special deals via e-coupons, the first of its kind in Brunei.

Touching on SMEs, Mr Imhof gave assurance that Baiduri Bank Group will increase its support to them, particularly those in the Oil and Gas Industry by providing customised solutions to meet their specific needs. "A dedicated team based in our Head Office and at our Seria and Kuala Belait branches was set up to develop our services to this sector further", added Mr Imhof.

Over the past year, Baiduri Bank Group continued to receive international recognition and awards.

"Without the continuous support of our customers and associates, we will not have been able to achieve this, and for this, I would like to express our appreciation to all of you for the support and confidence given to us through the years," concluded Mr. Imhof.
