PBCom rolls out special personal loan package


Philippine Bank of Communications (PBCom) seeks to grow its consumer lending portfolio with the rollout of a personal loan package for qualified professionals, business owners and salaried employees.

“The PBCom Personal Loan is a cash solution offered to clients to finance their special needs, such as tuition, medical expenses, home improvement, and car repairs,” PBCom convenience banking head Kevin Lynch said in a statement on Wednesday.

The personal loan may also be used to finance special events such as weddings, purchase of appliances or furniture and vacations or travel.

Borrowers can avail themselves of P40,000 to P1 million in loans from PBCom at “affordable” monthly installments and “competitive” rates, the bank said. The loans can be paid in 12 to 48 months, the bank said.

PBCom said the new product was in line with its efforts to provide one-stop banking products and services. This adds to the bank’s auto and home loan solutions for consumers, as well as a menu of corporate loans for business needs.

The bank sees strong demand for this product.

“There is a large number of Filipinos with this type of financing requirement and we have designed the personal loan to be an attractive option for these clients,” Lynch explained.

PBCom also unveiled recently a new corporate identity that embodied its aspiration toward “the delivery of next level banking.” Its new corporate logo, that shows a golden-orange circle with a stylized calligraphy brush-stroke of a dragon’s head, is described as “fresh and young” and meant to attract a multi-generational client base.

The circle represents the bank’s image as a “confident, vigorous institution that continues to honor its commitment to deliver profitable and sustainable growth to its stakeholders in a perpetual, unbroken cycle.”

Known for being protective of its treasures, the dragon is meant to symbolize the way PBCom “provides an environment of safety, security, and growth.”

The commercial bank, with a legacy of close to 75 years, is currently renovating its branches and upgrading infrastructure to enhance overall customer experience. It is also investing significantly in technology, expanding client offerings and streamlining processes. Doris C. Dumlao
