CIMB Singapore offers high interest rate of 2.88% per annum on new CIMB BusinessGo current accounts to support businesses and particularly SMEs

CIMB: Transforming Customer Experience in Support of SMEs
  • The interest-bearing account is one of the few available in the market and comes with additional benefits as SMEs contend with the rising costs of doing business.
  • CIMB Singapore saw revenue contribution from its SME products and services more than tripled over the past two years, supported by strong relationships with business clients reinforced during the pandemic.

22 NOVEMBER 2023, SINGAPORE: CIMB Singapore is offering a no-frills, limited-time interest rate of 2.88%* per annum for all new business customers who open a CIMB BusinessGo current account by 31 December 2023.

The CIMB BusinessGo current account is one of the few interest-bearing business accounts available in the market that rewards customers with higher interest on their balance. This account is more than a repository for business’ operating cashflows, it provides an opportunity for idle funds to grow and over time, defray the rising costs of doing business.

It also comes with additional benefits such as free FAST and payroll transfers, free telegraphic transfers worldwide, and no minimum balance fall-below fees from now until 31 January 2024.

Benjamin Tan, Head of Commercial Banking at CIMB Singapore, said: “Small-and-medium enterprises (SMEs) make up 99% of all enterprises in Singapore and employ 71% of the country’s workforce. In today’s volatile macroeconomic environment, we have seen higher business costs, rising operational costs, and challenges in digital adoption, which need to be addressed in order for SMEs to leverage the opportunities in the digitised economy in Singapore and beyond.”

Therefore, CIMB Singapore also provides one of the most attractive working capital loans and commercial property mortgage interest offers, high foreign exchange rates on selected currencies such as the Malaysian Ringgit and Indonesian Rupiah, a wide range of cash management solutions, and beyond banking services. By tapping into its ASEAN network, CIMB Singapore provides valuable local insights and advisory services, as well as a full suite of customised solutions to support client’s growth ambitions in the region.

CIMB Singapore recognises the innate need for a human touch amid an increasingly digital and frenzied world. Thus, supporting this suite of products and services is a deep commitment to excellent customer service where it matters most. Beyond a multifaceted customer touchpoint, which includes a dedicated Business Call Centre and EVA (CIMB Singapore’s digital chatbot), every new business customer will receive a welcome call within one day of account opening and be assigned a Relationship Manager.

Benjamin added “In the last two years, revenue contribution from our SME products and services have more than tripled. The relationship we cultivated with our business clients was reinforced during the pandemic as we weathered unprecedented challenges together, and this has allowed us to empathise and deeply understand their needs. The CIMB BusinessGo current account exemplifies our promise to make banking simpler and more fulfilling, so our clients can better focus on what matters to them most.”

                  The Global Private Banking Innovation Awards will recognise the world’s best private banks, wealth managers and asset managers that are championing innovation across advisory, service, products, customer experience and more.
