BML hosts “Great Banking for Great Resorts” event

Bank of Maldives has hosted a dedicated banking event for resorts, welcoming senior management from resorts across the country to Kurumba Maldives.

At the event, BML showcased its full suite of banking solutions for resorts including branch, card and online banking services. The bank also unveiled a new online international money transfer service which, as per the bank, will hugely simplify the sending of money abroad – a difficulty that is currently faced by resort employees and others throughout the atolls. This mobile phone-based service will be officially launched by the Bank next week.

The event brought into focus the decades-long relationship Bank of Maldives has had with the tourism industry and the support the bank extends to resorts. Management from the Bank emphasized how Bank of Maldives’ nationwide network of branches, agents and ATMs provide local services to resorts.This support is complemented by internet banking, card and payment gateway facilities, demonstrating the wide range of banking services BML has to offer. It was also announced that each resort has been allocated a dedicated relationship manager who will serve as a single point of contact for all future banking requirements.Speaking at the event, BML CEO Andrew Healy said, “It’s a great pleasure to welcome so many of you to this unique event for resorts. Bank of Maldives has had the honour of working with a great many of you as you’ve developed your resorts and as you’ve made such a terrific success not just of your own businesses but of the tourism industry as a whole.

“Yes, we wanted to share our exciting new international money transfer product with you. But far more importantly, we wanted to say how much we value your business and to highlight some ways we can further support your resort and your staff with your banking.”
