KUALA LUMPUR, April 9 -- Affin Bank Bhd aims to become the preferred bank for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and start-ups by providing a wide array of banking solutions, its president and group chief executive officer Datuk Wan Razly Abdullah Wan Ali said.
“Despite often being regarded as the riskier segment, start-ups are one of the most robust segments of the economy that have high a potential to grow extensively with the right guidance and assistance,” he said in a statement today.
He said with the support given, the bank hoped the start-up scene would flourish and help to stimulate the economy.
Affin Bank’s start-up banking proposition includes start-up financing schemes that provide initial working capital.
