Security Bank Corporation (PSE:SECB) bagged the New Consumer Lending Product of the Year award at the Asian Banking and Finance Retail Banking Awards 2023 for its Complete Cashback Platinum Mastercard.

The Complete Cashback Platinum Mastercard was lauded for having the best-in-class rewards and rebate program for practical spending. The tiered rebate structure covers the most relevant everyday spend categories of cardholders: 5% rebate on groceries, 4% rebate on gas, 3% rebate on utilities, 2% rebate on dining, and 1% rebate on shopping. Moreover, the card offers supplemental benefits like airport lounge access (i.e., Marhaba Lounge at NAIA Terminals 1 and 3), e-commerce purchase protection and exclusive shopping and dining offers. The card was also recognized for its overall proposition and convenience in terms of experience.

Now on its 18th year, the Asian Banking and Finance Retail Banking Awards honored retail banks and financial institutions in the Asia Pacific region for their innovative products, services, and solutions that made positive impact to customers.

The recognition is yet again a testament of the commitment Security Bank shows through its compelling product offerings. Over the years, the Bank has further strengthened market appreciation of its retail banking business despite the changing market conditions by staying true to its core—providing what customers want and need and investing in what matters to them.

“We’re thrilled to receive the ‘New Consumer Lending Product of the Year’ award for our Complete Cashback Platinum Mastercard,” said Maricar Filart, SAVP and Product Management & Communications Head at Security Bank. “This recognition reflects our commitment to providing innovative financial solutions that truly enhance our customers’ lives. We are dedicated to continuously improving our products and setting new standards for excellence in the industry.”

In its pursuit to become the most customer-centric bank in the Philippines, Security Bank also recently received praise for its outstanding achievements from other award-giving bodies such as Alpha Southeast Asia and Asiamoney for being the Best Retail Bank in the Philippines and Best Bank for High-Net-Worth clients, respectively.
