The Jordanian Housing Commerce and Financing Bank recently began providing a new banking service package through the Internet. According to reports in the London based Al-Sharq Al-Awsat daily, this initiative aims at giving the bank an edge in the local and overseas markets.
Director General of the bank, Abdul-Qader Dweik, stated that the service constitutes a tremendous opportunity for marketing new electronic services in Jordan.
The Housing Bank, established in 1973 currently ranks first in Jordan, with approximately JD 100 million in capital, and shareholders’ equity amounting to JD 263 million. It currently offers the greatest number of ATM machines, and was the first Jordanian bank to provide services such as mobile banking, telephone transactions, and mutual investment fund services. –(MENA Report)
