On 8th February 2017, leading local bank BNI Syariah hosted an event to celebrate the official opening of its three new regional offices at the JS Luwansa Hotel in Jakarta. As an esteemed bank that actively works towards catering to the demands of customers seeking shariah compliant financing, BNI Syariah aims to offer greater customer convenience in addition to delivering its ‘Hasanah Lifestyle Banking’ concept through its recent network expansion. As such, BNI Syariah has established offices for the West Java, East Java, and Greater Jakarta regions that will also serve as the bank’s shariah channelling outlet hub. The event was attended by a number of prominent guests including President Director of BNI Syariah Mr Imam Teguh Saptono, Mr Kukuh Rahardjo as Director of Consumer Business, Mr Junaidi Hisom as Operational Director; Ms Tribuana Tunggadewi as Director of Risk Management and Compliance; Ms Dhias Widiyati as Senior Executive Vice President for Commercial Business among a slew of other guests.
The recently opened regional offices are set to undertake several areas of operations including monitoring customer service quality, developing customised banking and finance programmes, and increasing public awareness regarding shariah banking. As of December 2016, BNI Syariah recorded a 23% increase of its assets – in which it was largely driven by its financing services which grew 15% year-on-year – thus the bank confidently targets for significant growth through its regional offices.
In keeping with the bank’s goal of expanding its network reach, BNI Syariah will also turn to the use of digital and social media that is poised to contribute to the growth of shariah banking in Indonesia. During the event, BNI Syariah utilised its app that boasts an augmented reality feature to mark the official regional offices opening and therefore demonstrating the bank’s investment in ensuring that its tools and resources are constantly up-to-date with the latest trends. Through the opening of three regional branches, BNI Syariah has illustrated its unparalleled dedication to creating a far-reaching banking and finance channel while in conjunction pushing for the advancement of Indonesia’s shariah banking industry that is poised for steadfast growth in the coming years.
