Group Commercial Banking

Ambition is at the heart of every business, whether just starting your company, growing the foundations for the future or managing an already established organisation and livelihoods. At CIMB, we recognise that whatever your aspirations, you need the right partner to advance towards the dreams and ambitions you have for your business.

This division is helmed by Effendy Shahul Hamid, who is the CEO of Group Commercial Banking and assisted by the Deputy CEO, Ahmad Shazli Kamarulzaman. With over 150 SME centres and over 900 branches with co-located Trade Service Centres across Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, the Bank has established a strong regional footprint in ASEAN.

And with the initial rollout of CIMB Biz123 in Malaysia, our holistic one-stop platform, we offer a complete range of solutions for businesses, from sole proprietorships and enterprises to SMEs. CIMB Biz123's value proposition is premised on three key points - fast and easy tools, complete solutions and one-stop support - aimed at helping businesses grow and prosper. 

CIMB Biz123's first value proposition, Fast and Easy Tools, includes among others, convenient online account opening; instant account number upon completion of application; e-alerts on account activities via BizAlert; simple documentation with fast turnaround and disbursement upon receiving complete documentation for selected industry segments.

From accounts and deposits, investment management, foreign currency hedging, conventional loan facilities to Shariah-compliant Islamic banking solutions, as well as corporate finance services for enterprises with IPO aspirations, business owners can rest assured that our suite of Complete Solutions will cater to their various needs through our wide array of conventional and Islamic products.

CIMB Biz123's third value proposition, One-Stop Support, offers, among others, a dedicated business call centre; a new website with simplified presentation designed with speed and efficiency in mind; and dedicated relationship managers as a single point of contact for businesses.

With a long history of successfully helping companies navigate the path towards their goals, and with the right suite of products, services and easily accessible financing for businesses, CIMB is the chosen partner for many companies as their preferred financial service provider.  Whatever your dream, let us help you as you take your next steps forward.
