Medical professionals have been provided with another option for managing their financial resources.
Yesterday, senior officials of CIBC First Caribbean International Bank launched these services at St. Ann’s Fort, the Garrison, St. Michael.
Director of Retail Banking, Michelle Whitelaw, pointed out that the launching of the Medical Professional Edge programme could be seen as a means of establishing a new relationship with members of the medical profession.
Whitelaw said: “If you decide to sign up for this package you will have the benefit of a relationship with a manager who will guide your every step of the way as he charts your financial future. No question will go unanswered and your relationship manager will play an integral role in your financial success. You can even refer to your relationship manager as your financial physician.
“They will ask you questions. We encourage you to be open with them as the question asked will help them better diagnose your needs in an effort to offer you the best product and solutions. The process is similar to when we visit the doctor. We have to open up and point out our symptoms so that he can prescribe the correct treatment.”
Meanwhile, Manager Sales and Business Development, Gregory Blackman, in expanding on the benefits which the Medical Professional Edge offers medical professionals, said he wanted to offer a special bonus reward to medical professionals who sign up with the bank during the month of July.
Medical professionals whi sign up would qualify for 100 per cent car loan financing, over draught protection on your salary accounts, special land and home purchase offers as well as unsecured financing.
He also stated that for self-employed professionals the bank would be providing easy credit financing for equipment purchases.
Blackman disclosed that in terms of equipment loans, the bank would offer US $60,000 for start up businesses and US $75,000 for established businesses.
Start up professionals are persons who have been in practice for less than three years and those who were in business more than three years. (NC)
