KBC Bank Ireland has been awarded the Best New Debit Card Programme of the Year at the UK and Ireland Card & Payments Awards, which took place in London.
The Awards celebrate customer service, excellence and innovation in the UK and Irish card and payments industries. KBC Bank Ireland was recognised for introducing its MasterCard Debit card as part of the bank’s new current account offering for personal customers in Ireland under the Bank of You campaign.
The Debit Card and new Current Account from KBC are one of a number of new initiatives from the bank as it develops a full suite of personal banking products and services for Irish customers. In the past twelve months, KBC has also opened new retail banking hubs in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway, rolled out a mobile bank service, and introduced a full complement of life insurance products.
Commenting on the award Dara Deering, executive director and head of Retail Banking, KBC Bank Ireland, said; “We’ve had a really positive response from customers to our current account and the benefits of free online and mobile banking, as well as free cashback and Debit Card transactions in store. Consumer banking behaviour is evolving, and KBC understands that, which is why we develop products and services which offer the features, flexibility and online facilities that customers expect from a modern retail bank.”
