HNB beats private banks with largest branch network

Hatton National Bank (HNB) said yesterday that it now has the largest branch network among private players in the industry.

It said in keeping with its extensive branch opening strategy pursued in 2011, the bank reached the milestone of 240 Customer Centres with the opening of the Customer Centre in Bandaragama.

“Through this branch expansion strategy pursued in 2011, the bank was able to maintain its position as the private sector commercial bank with the largest network of Customer Centres with the widest reach,” a spokesman for HNB said.

During the past two months HNB opened eight Customer Centres in Kilinochchi, Dehiattakandiya, Galaha, Hakmana, Urubokka, Kalawana, Hikkaduwa and Bandaragama.

“These Customer Centres are bound to add more convenience and banking opportunity to the people in these areas. The bank is steadfast in its focus to have greater financial inclusion among people in Sri Lanka by bringing a comprehensive range of financial services,” he added.

The spokesman said HNB stands tall as one of the largest private sector commercial banks in the country with a focus on corporate banking, trade finance, international banking, treasury, project financing and financing for large infrastructure development projects in the country. The bank is a leader in retail banking and has been awarded the Best Retail Bank in Sri Lanka Award for its performance in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 by the Asian Banker Magazine.
