FirstCaribbean customers, upon signing up for these services, will have unlimited access to their accounts once they can access the Internet or a touch-tone phone.

The bank will allow its customers the edge of being able to view their balances in any country across all types of accounts – chequing, savings, loans and time deposits. They will also be able to view transactions for the last six months on First-Caribbean chequing and savings accounts via the Internet or hear the last 10 transactions via the telephone.

Apart from the flexibility that these new channels offer, FirstCaribbean Internet Banking and FirstCaribbean Telephone Banking offer safe, secure, user-friendly, dependable operations and are competitively priced.

FirstCaribbean International Bank’s CEO Charles Pink said, “The bank is moving one step closer to fulfilling its promise of providing alternative banking solutions through our much awaited Internet and Telephone Banking channels.” He explained that the service is being offered to the public after months of careful planning and preparation, testing and fine-tuning.

FirstCaribbean said it will the only bank in the region to offer both Internet and Telephone Banking to customers across its full regional network following the bank’s US$50M investment in a single state-of-the-art technology platform as part of its integration plan.
