GTBank Commences “Instant Account Opening” on Facebook

Guaranty Trust Bank plc has once again raised the service bar for African Financial Institutions, 
by up grading its Social Banking offering on Facebook to accommodate Instant GTBank Account Opening. 

With this upgrade, prospective customers of the foremost Bank can open accounts and immediately get their account numbers while on Facebook, without having to visit any GTBank branch. Continue


Commenting on the new offering which went live recently, Managing Director/CEO of Guaranty Trust plc; Mr. Segun Agbaje said the upgrade will make it more convenient for people to commence banking relationships with the Bank. Mr. Agbaje explained that all people have to do while on Facebook is fill the account opening form, upload their passport photograph and signature mandate and immediately get their account number.

GTBank Social Banking is a unique offering pioneered by the Bank earlier in the year that allows people open GTBank Accounts, make Account Balance Enquiries, perform Money Transfers and purchase Airtime on Facebook.

 The Bank remains the leading Nigerian financial services provider in the social media space with over 1.3 Million followers on Facebook alone, the largest following for any Nigerian company. 

With Social Banking, Guaranty Trust Bank plc has successfully introduced a new and effective platform through which its customers can get real-time customer service and perform transactions quickly, safely and at their convenience. According to Mr. Agbaje the banking requirements of today’s customers necessitates a high degree of flexibility, which is why GTBank is instituting value adding channels on social and other platforms that allow people bank 24/7.

Guaranty Trust Bank plc was established in 1990 and has within the last 23 years come to be recognized as one of the most innovative and service focused banks in Nigeria. The Bank, which was recently conferred with the 2013 African Bank of the Year Award by African Banker Magazine, has banking subsidiaries in Cote D’Ivoire, the Gambia, Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, the United Kingdom and has concluded the purchase of a 70% equity stake in Fina Bank that will see its operations spread to Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda .

Gtbank should address their customer service issues 1st, they ve got some not so bright people on their front desk, like been dumb as a doornail isn't bad enough, they are rude as well and that combo can bring down the largest of banks.

very very stupid and very risky idea to come up with, these days when the internet is not safe anymore and you have hackers on the loose looking for who to target, very convenient for customers but risky for both the customer and bank in the long term.....my thots

Anonymous said...

This is a stupid idea, and I see GTB are not following the CBN policy on KYC(know your customer). All banks must carry out a visitation report on each customer they are to bank with, and also Ensure valid documentations are in place to open accounts in case any fraud was done on such account. Their will be easy archieve to fall back to for retrievals of needful information.Pls GTB don't rubish banking system in Nigeria.

Making this convenient, no doubt but hope they can improve on their Internet security which is very porous. There has bn incidents where people's naira master card is bn used by fraudsters and they can't trace them. When they are coming up wt this facebook strategy, they had better be ready.
