Dhaka, Thursday, July 29, 2021: BRAC Bank has announced three winners from the first batch of students of the country's first SME accelerator programme, Uddokta 101.

Batch one of 'Uddokta 101' started their course in April 2021 with 31 entrepreneurs, out of which 21 were female.
After completing the course, the participants submitted their business expansion plans where 12 of them made it to the final pitch round.
Farhana Rahman, who secured the top position at the final pitch round, started her enterprise with only BDT 5,000 BDT in hand. About 6 years ago, she launched Diva's world, an online-based platform where women can get everything under one umbrella to become a Diva.
The first runner-up, Misha Mahjabeen, is the founder of 'Healthy Bengal'. It is a startup that encourages people with its motto of investing in preventive health. Healthy Bengal creates awareness and also offers products and services related to mental health and physical fitness.
Khaleda Sultana, Founder and CEO, Jutemart & Craft, obtained the second runner-up position. Khaleda holds an Honours and Masters in Botany from Dhaka University and pursued molecular genetics for a while. In 2010, she started exporting jute-based products to Australia and Europe (Denmark and Norway) through her friends, family, and relatives. Apart from export, she produces jute-based products for local retailers, corporate events, and export agents.
Syed Abdul Momen, Deputy Managing Director and Head of SME Banking, BRAC Bank, said, “We are proud to create further synergies between BRAC Bank and the young entrepreneurs who dream of leading the change in the country. We, along with our partner – the University of Dhaka, will continue our journey to become the top accelerator of SMEs, especially women entrepreneurs in Bangladesh".

Dhaka, Monday, July 26, 2021: BRAC Bank, the pioneer of SME Banking in Bangladesh, has achieved a distinct benchmark of compliance for maintaining a high level of data security of the customers.
The bank has recently achieved compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) to obtain the certification.
PCI-DSS Certificate is regarded as the most rigorous and globally recognized payment-card security standard in the industry, a statement said.
The compliance assessment was done by renowned Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) SISA InfoSec. BRAC Bank has received the PCI-DSS Certificate by complying with all its requirements.
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) is a set of security standards developed for organizations that store, process, or transmit cardholder's data.
Governed by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI-SSC), the compliance certification aims to secure card transactions against data theft and fraud.
BRAC Bank is among very few banks in Bangladesh that have complied with the PCI-DSS requirement that has been set by the regulatory body and mandatory by payment partners (e.g., Visa, Master Card, JCB).
Sabbir Hossain, DMD and Chief Operating Officer of BRAC Bank, said, "It was a journey of 4 years that has enabled us to be PCI-DSS certified. We had to upgrade multiple major solutions, including in-house applications to ensure compliance with the rigorous standard".
In this process, BRAC Bank has upgraded its eCommerce Platform, credit card solution, payment switch system, CORPnet, internet banking system and core banking system. It also deployed multiple security technologies and conducted several security assessments and multiple pieces of training.
Hossain added, "BRAC Bank strives to achieve the utmost compliance standards in the industry and continuously improve to protect valuable business information assets. We are happy to offer complete data protection to our customers."
Earlier, BRAC Bank achieved the ISO 27001:2013 certification for Information security management function in 2017 and the ISO 18788 certification for Security Operations and Cyber Fusion Centre in 2020.
আন্তর্জাতিক তথ্য সুরক্ষা সার্টিফিকেট পেলো ব্র্যাক ব্যাংক
ঢাকা, সোমবার, ২৬শে জুলাই, ২০২১: গ্রাহকদের সর্বোচ্চ ডেটা সিকিউরিটি বা তথ্য সুরক্ষা বজায় রাখার জন্য একটি আন্তর্জাতিক মানের স্বীকৃতি অর্জন করেছে বাংলাদেশে এসএমই ব্যাংকিংয়ের প্রবর্তক ব্র্যাক ব্যাংক।
সম্প্রতি ‘পেমেন্ট কার্ড ইন্ডাস্ট্রি ডেটা সিকিউরিটি স্ট্যান্ডার্ড' (পিসিআই-ডিএসএস)-এর নীতিমালা অনুযায়ী শক্তিশালী সিস্টেম, উন্নত নেটওয়ার্ক সিকিউরিটি ব্যবস্থা, নিয়মিত পর্যবেক্ষণ ও রক্ষণাবেক্ষণ নিশ্চিত করার মাধ্যমে এই সনদ অর্জন করেছে ব্র্যাক ব্যাংক, এক সংবাদ বিজ্ঞপ্তিতে জানানো হয়।
পিসিআই-ডিএসএস কমপ্লায়েন্স স্ট্যান্ডার্ডকে গ্রাহকমুখী প্রতিষ্ঠানগুলোর জন্য সবচেয়ে কঠোর এবং বিশ্বব্যাপী স্বীকৃত পেমেন্ট-কার্ড সুরক্ষা মান হিসাবে বিবেচনা করা হয়।
সুরক্ষা মূল্যায়নকারী প্রতিষ্ঠান (কিউএসএ) এসআইএসএ ইনফেসেক-এর মাধ্যমে পিসিআই-ডিএসএস কমপ্লায়েন্স স্ট্যান্ডার্ড এর সকল প্রয়োজনীয়তা মেনে সনদটি পেয়েছে ব্র্যাক ব্যাংক।
পিসিআই-ডিএসএস হলো কার্ডহোল্ডারের ডেটা সঞ্চয়, প্রক্রিয়াজাত ও প্রেরণকারী প্রতিষ্ঠানগুলোর জন্য সুরক্ষিত মানদন্ডের একটি স্ট্যান্ডার্ড।
পেমেন্ট কার্ড ইন্ডাস্ট্রি সিকিউরিটি স্ট্যান্ডার্ড কাউন্সিল (পিসিআই-এসএসসি) নিয়ন্ত্রিত এই কমপ্লায়েন্স সনদের লক্ষ্য হলো ডেটা চুরি এবং জালিয়াতির বিরুদ্ধে কার্ডের লেনদেনকে সুরক্ষিত করা।
ব্র্যাক ব্যাংক বাংলাদেশের খুব অল্প সংখ্যক প্রতিষ্ঠানগুলোর একটি যারা পিসিআই-ডিএসএসের প্রয়োজনীয়তা মেনে চলেছে। এটি ইতোমধ্যে নিরন্ত্রক সংস্থা এবং বিভিন্ন পেমেন্ট পার্টনার, যেমনঃ ভিসা, মাস্টার কার্ড, জেসিবি দ্বারা বাধ্যতামূলক করা হয়েছে।
ব্র্যাক ব্যাংকের ডিএমডি অ্যান্ড চিফ অপারেটিং অফিসার সাব্বির হোসেন বলেন, "প্রায় ৪ বছরের কঠিন পরিশ্রমের মাধ্যমে আমরা পিসিআই-ডিএসএস সার্টিফিকেট অর্জন করতে সক্ষম হয়েছি। এই কঠিন স্ট্যান্ডার্ডের মান বজায় রাখার জন্য আমাদের অভ্যন্তরীণ অ্যাপ্লিকেশন সহ একাধিক বড় বড় সলিউশন আপগ্রেড করতে হয়েছে"।
এই প্রক্রিয়াতে, ব্র্যাক ব্যাংক তার ইকমার্স প্ল্যাটফর্ম, ক্রেডিট কার্ড সলিউশন, পেমেন্ট সুইচ সিস্টেম, কর্পনেট, ইন্টারনেট ব্যাংকিং সিস্টেম এবং কোর ব্যাংকিং সিস্টেমকে উন্নত করেছে। পাশাপাশি একাধিক সুরক্ষা প্রযুক্তি মোতায়েন করে বিভিন্ন সুরক্ষা মূল্যায়ন ও একাধিক প্রশিক্ষণের ব্যবস্থা করেছে।
হোসেন আরও বলেন, "ব্যাংকিং খাতে সর্বোচ্চ মান অর্জনে ব্র্যাক ব্যাংক প্রতিশ্রুতিবদ্ধ। আমাদের মূল্যবান তথ্য সম্পদ রক্ষায় অবিচ্ছিন্নভাবে উন্নতি করা আমাদের অন্যতম লক্ষ্য। আমাদের গ্রাহকদের সম্পূর্ণ ডেটা সুরক্ষা নিশ্চিত করতে পেরে আমরা আনন্দিত।"
এর আগে, ব্র্যাক ব্যাংক তথ্য সুরক্ষা ব্যবস্থাপনার জন্য ২০১৭ সালে ISO 27001: 2013 সনদ এবং ২০২০ সালে সিকিউরিটি অপারেশনস এবং সাইবার ফিউশন সেন্টারের জন্য ISO 18788 সনদ অর্জন করেছে।

His leadership has instilled energy, innovation and ambition in the SME Banking team; as a result, the team is consistently delivering business growth and reaching new milestones.
Selim RF Hussain, the Managing Director and CEO of BRAC Bank, said, "In the last few years, Momen has taken our SME business to new heights - doubling the lending portfolio, improving the portfolio quality, and growing the deposit book. Our Board is extremely pleased to broaden his responsibility in BRAC Bank."

ব্র্যাক ব্যাংকের নতুন হোমগ্রোউন ডিএমডি
ঢাকা, শনিবার, ২৪শে জুলাই, ২০২১: ব্র্যাক ব্যাংক লিমিটেড সম্প্রতি তার হেড অফ এসএমই ব্যাংকিং, সৈয়দ আবদুল মোমেনকে ব্যাংকের ডেপুটি ম্যানেজিং ডিরেক্টর (উপ-ব্যবস্থাপনা পরিচালক) পদে পদোন্নতি দিয়েছে, এক সংবাদ বিজ্ঞপ্তিতে জানানো হয়।
মোমেন ২০০৫ সালে ব্র্যাক ব্যাংকে যোগ দিয়ে দু'বছর ব্যাংকটির টেকনোলজি বিভাগে কাজ করেন। এরপর তিনি দুই বছরের বিশেষ দায়িত্বে ব্র্যাক আফগানিস্তান ব্যাংকে যান এবং সেখানে হেড অফ অপারেশন্স ও পরবর্তীতে চীফ অপারেশন্স অফিসার হিসেবে দায়িত্ব পালন করেন।
২০০৯ সালে ব্র্যাক ব্যাংকে ফিরে এসে তিনি এসএমই কালেকশন প্রজেক্টের প্রধান হিসাবে এসএমই ব্যাংকিং বিভাগে যোগদান করেন। ২০১০ সালের জুলাই মাসে, প্রকল্পটি সফলভাবে সমাপ্ত হওয়ার পর, তিনি এসএমই ব্যাংকিং বিভাগের ক্ষুদ্র ব্যবসায় (স্মল বিজনেস) বিভাগের প্রধান হিসাবে কাজ শুরু করেন। ২০১৭ সালে তিনি পুরো এসএমই ব্যাংকিং বিভাগের দায়িত্ব পান।
তাঁর নেতৃত্ব এসএমই ব্যাংকিং বিভাগে নতুন করে উদ্দীপনা, উদ্ভাবনী চর্চা এবং উচ্চাকাঙ্ক্ষা তৈরি হয় যার ফলে ব্র্যাক ব্যাংকের এসএমই বিভাগ ধারাবাহিকভাবে ব্যবসায়িক বৃদ্ধি এবং নিত্য নতুন মাইলফলক অর্জনে সক্ষম হয়।
ব্র্যাক ব্যাংকের ম্যানেজিং ডিরেক্টর অ্যান্ড সিইও সেলিম রেজা ফরহাদ হোসেন বলেন, "গত কয়েক বছরে মোমেন আমাদের এসএমই ব্যবসাকে এক নতুন উচ্চতায় পৌছে দিয়েছেন। তার কারণে আমাদের লোন পোর্টফোলিও যেমন দ্বিগুণ হয়েছে, তেমনি উন্নত হয়েছে পোর্টফোলিওর মান এবং আমানত। ব্র্যাক ব্যাংকের পরিচালনা পর্ষদের প্রত্যেকেই ব্যাংকে তাঁর দায়িত্বের পরিধি বাড়াতে পেরে সন্তুষ্ট।"
মোমেন ১৯৯৯ সালে তার ব্যাংকিং কর্মজীবন শুরু করেন তৎকালীন এএনজেড গ্রিন্ডলেজ ব্যাংকের মাধ্যমে, যা ২০০০ সালে স্ট্যান্ডার্ড চার্টার্ড ব্যাংক অধিগ্রহণ করে। মোমেন লন্ডনের মিডলসেক্স বিশ্ববিদ্যালয় থেকে কম্পিউটার কমিউনিকেশন্স অ্যান্ড আইটি বিষয়ে বিএসসি সম্পন্ন করেছেন।
পুরো ব্যাংকিং খাতে সৈয়দ আবদুল মোমেন এসএমই ব্যাংকিং-এর উপর তার জ্ঞান এবং দক্ষতার জন্য বেশ সুপরিচিত।
Dhaka, Saturday, July 17, 2021: BRAC Bank has committed to provide food supplies to contribute to the free-meal programme by 'Mehmankhana', a quaint corner of Dhaka's Lalmatia Residential Area. The first food shipment has reached today [Saturday].
'Mehmankhana', as the organizers call it, is coordinated and run by volunteers who started feeding the low-income people during Ramadan of 2020.
Today the volunteers of Mehmankhana feed around 2,000 people every day and send more than 400 food packets to the relatively better-off families, who lost their sources of income due to the COVID and lockdown situation and feel shy to queue up for food.
BRAC Bank is to provide its monthly supplies for the next 10 months to help Mehmankhana feed the people who don’t have food.
"It's a charity organization", said Theatre worker Liza Asma Akhter, who leads Mehmankhana along with her friends, "and we wanted to provide hot meals to orphaned children, rickshaw-pullers, street vendors and other marginalized persons of the society".
"We are happy and honoured to be a part of this free-meal initiative by Mehmankhana", said Selim RF Hussain, Managing Director and CEO of BRAC Bank as the bank commits to continue the support for at least 10 months.
He said, "BRAC Bank is committed to leaving no one behind. The ideology behind Mehmankhana is quite aligned with our values".

Dhaka, Tuesday, July 13, 2021: Morshed, a member of the national wheelchair cricket team, has recently been provided with an artificial leg by the BRAC Limb and Brace Centre. BRAC Bank, one of the leading financial institutions in the country, has assisted in this.
The artificial leg was attached to Morshed's body on June 13 this year. After some routine exercise, Morshed has returned to his home. Born in '96, the youngster now runs regularly during his cricket practice.
The story was revealed in a press release by BRAC Bank today.
Morshed Alam is the son of Altaf Hossain of Boalkhali Upazila in Chattogram. Morshed used to face difficulties after barely moving from his house to the playground. His family was unable to get proper treatment for him due to financial constraints.
Learning about Morshed, BRAC Bank came forward to support his indomitable dream. Free prosthetic leg were implanted in his body under the supervision of BRAC Limb and Brace Centre.
When Morshed was contacted and asked how he was, he said, "I am much better than before, I can walk, I can play. I used to feel pain while walking. Now it is not there anymore. I feel quite fit now. My parents are also very happy. Many friends came to see. I am now dreaming big after getting this leg. It was hard for me to play cricket, now I can play quite effortlessly. ”
Selim RF Hussain, Managing Director and CEO, BRAC Bank, said, “BRAC Bank's goal, in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, is to ensure that no one is left behind. And therefore we are working for a society in partnerships with different organizations. BRAC Bank is proud to be a part of Morshed's journey. ”
BRAC Bank also provides annual financial assistance to the ‘Poor Fund’ of BRAC Limb and Brace Center and bears the cost of the prosthesis of many of the helpless people.
On March 17, one of the leading daily newspapers published a piece of news on Ishita who was not able to go to school due to a lack of artificial legs. Upon knowing this, BRAC Bank came forward and Ishita was given a free prosthesis on April 5, 2021, under the supervision of BRAC Limb and Brace Centre.

Dhaka, Sunday, June 27, 2021: BRAC Bank embarks on a journey of debunking social taboos as it decides to become truly diverse and gender-inclusive.
The bank has recently announced a mainstream job opportunity where the third gender and the persons with special needs are equally eligible to apply, said a press release.
BRAC Bank has launched its Young Leaders' Program, a dedicated program for fresh graduates, as part of the bank's investment in building a robust and talented workforce. They have encouraged female, male, third gender and persons with special needs to apply to this year-long development program.
Akhteruddin Mahmood, Head of HR at BRAC Bank, said: "Our Young Leaders with fresh ideas must aspire to be change-makers in the bank. The program will offer structured learning opportunities and 360-degree exposure to the different functions of BRAC Bank".
Applicants can prioritize their preferred divisions among the 17 divisions of the bank while applying for the Young Leaders' program.
The Young Leaders are assured of receiving an attractive remuneration, and after successful completion of the year-long development program, they will get an appointment as Principal Officers.
As an equal opportunity employer, BRAC Bank offers a fast track career for successful young leaders with exciting learning opportunities, competitive benefits package and a best in the class working environment.
On opening the opportunity for third gender and persons with special needs, Mahmood said: "Diversity shines a brighter light on business and investment outcomes. To achieve our vision and to champion the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ‘keeping no one behind’ is one of our key focus areas, and we plan to develop an inclusive humane psyche by employing people from all walks of life at our workplace".
The bank is one of the first corporates in the country to have announced a mainstream job opportunity for the third gender.
In April 2021, BRAC Bank organized a learning session for its employees on gender prejudices where Tashnuva Anan Shishir, Bangladesh's first trans-person news broadcaster, was invited as the speaker.

Dhaka, Tuesday, June 22, 2021: BRAC Bank has partnered with 5 new exchange companies to channel Wage Earners’ Remittance through its country-wide network.
The new remittance partners are KL Remit Exchange SDN BHD (Malaysia), CBL Money Transfer (Malaysia), Crown Agents Bank (UK), Hamdan Exchange LLC (Oman), and Global Money Exchange Company (Oman).
Earlier, the bank also obtained permission from Bangladesh Bank as per the regulatory guideline.
Mahiul Islam, Head of Retail Banking, BRAC Bank, said, "Wage earner remittance is an important driver of our economy and also a major contributor to the nation’s foreign currency reserve. BRAC Bank is committed to enhancing our remittance ecosystem. With the new partners, we believe that the Bangladeshi diaspora will be able to send wage remittance at their comfort and convenience."
It is worth mentioning that one of BRAC Bank’s continuous big strategies is to harness the power of strategic relationships and deliver cutting-edge facilities to its customers. In this regard, the bank is currently completing API integrations with these partners to ensure automated and real-time remittance arrangements.
In addition, as part of its digital transformation, BRAC Bank has recently partnered with Ripple.
Ripple is a rapidly growing global network of 350+ financial institutions that enjoy plug-and-play facilities to automate payments between each other. This reduces significant time and cost by skipping API connectivity between each pair of partners, ushering in a new horizon of operational efficiency. Ripple uses blockchain technology optimized for peer to peer payments between financial institutions.
Mahiul also said, "With unparalleled customer convenience at its DNA, BRAC Bank offers Probashi Bangladeshi (NRBs) the facility to open accounts from anywhere in the world. The customers can also operate their accounts from their residing countries, using 'Astha', BRAC Bank's mobile banking app".
"NRBs can deposit a portion of their income in their accounts, instead of sending all of it for the household expenses of their families back home", he added.
Besides, BRAC Bank has a bundle of deposit and investment products specifically designed for its Probashi customers. It also provides government products such as bonds and Sanchaypatra. By sustaining a savings behaviour among the NRB wage earners, BRAC Bank also supports the holistic economic growth and development of the country.

Dhaka, Monday, May 24, 2021: BRAC Bank hosted its Q1’21 (January-March 2021) earnings disclosure event in a virtual programme.
After experiencing the full brunt of the COVID-19 pandemic in the first half of 2020 and subsequent health and economic recovery during the latter half of 2020, the year 2021 saw a vibrant first 3 months in terms of economic activity picking up. Bangladesh, one of the early adopters of the COVID-19 vaccination, rolled out the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine.
BRAC Bank was able to successfully re-organize its operations very early on to embrace new health and safety measures, roll out a virtual operations platform and significantly expand digital customer solutions. This allowed the Bank to continue to serve its customers during the pandemic and strengthen its position to counter the subsequent waves of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The point of caution is that the new COVID-19 variant has caused a rise in infection once again during April 2021 which resulted in a lockdown and stay at home initiatives to flatten the curve.
Some of the highlights of the Bank’s Q1’21 performance are:
The virtual earning disclosure programme brought together many local and foreign investment analysts, portfolio managers and capital market experts and was also broadcast live on social media for overseas stakeholders.
BRAC Bank’s Managing Director and CEO, Selim R. F. Hussain; DMD and Chief Financial Officer, M Masud Rana, FCA; DMD and Chief Operating Officer, Sabbir Hossain; DMD and Head of Corporate Banking, Tareq Refat Ullah Khan; and other Senior Business Heads presented the financial results, outlined the Bank’s strategy and conducted a Q&A session.

Dhaka, Friday, April 29, 2021: BRAC Bank has contributed to Prime Minister's Relief and Welfare Fund in providing food to the people affected by COVID-19.
The bank has handed over a cheque of five crore taka (BDT 50 million) to the Bangladesh Association of Banks (BAB) on Thursday, April 29, 2021, as part of this contribution.
The BAB, in a virtual meeting held on April 26, 2021, proposed to extend emergency food support through the Prime Minister's Relief and Welfare Fund to the people who are badly affected by COVID-19.
Selim RF Hussain, the Managing Director and CEO of BRAC Bank, said: "BRAC Bank is honoured to be able to support the marginalized people in this difficult time. COVID-19 has impacted millions who are struggling to meet the ends and this is a small contribution that would mitigate the suffering in the time of crisis. We would continue supporting the people who need help".
Earlier in March 2021, BRAC Bank also contributed 5 crore taka in favour of Bangabandhu Memorial Trust as part of a contribution to the Prime Minister's Ashrayan-2 project to support the homeless marking the Mujib Borsho and the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s independence.

Dhaka, Wednesday, April 21, 2021: BRAC Bank has disclosed its annual performance for the year ending December 31, 2020, in a virtual earning disclosure program on April 19, 2021.
Bangladesh experienced the full brunt of the COVID-19 pandemic in the first half of 2020 but recovered strongly through a large Government stimulus programme and multiple monetary measures. Strong overseas remittances from the private sector and a rebound in local economic activities also provided relief.
BRAC Bank was able to successfully re-organize its operations very early on to embrace new Health and Safety measures, roll out a virtual operations platform and significantly expand its digital customer solutions. It allowed the bank to continue to serve its customers during the pandemic and leverage off the economic recovery in the second half of the year.
Some of the highlights of the bank’s 2020 performance are:
The virtual earning disclosure programme brought together many local and foreign investment analysts, portfolio managers and capital market experts and was also broadcast live on social media for overseas stakeholders.
Selim R. F. Hussain, BRAC Bank's Managing Director and CEO; M. Masud Rana, DMD and Chief Financial Officer; Sabbir Hossain, DMD and Chief Operating Officer; Tareq Refat Ullah Khan, DMD and Head of the Corporate Banking Division and other Senior Business Heads presented the financial results, outlined the bank’s strategy and conducted a Q&A session.
Hussain ended the programme by stating, “BRAC Bank had come out of the pandemic with its reputation among customers and stakeholders even higher than at the start of the year.”
He was particularly complimentary of the Bank’s 9,500 odd staff members, who had exhibited the highest standards of professionalism and sincerity during a very difficult circumstance.

Dhaka, April 6, 2021: BRAC Bank has organized a learning session for its employees on gender prejudices for bringing about positive changes both in the society and at work.
Tashnuva Anan Shishir, Bangladesh's first trans-person news broadcaster reader, was invited as the speaker at the session. She shared the ups and downs of her life, the condition of other trans-persons in Bangladesh and what the society can do for them in order to positively include them in the main stream.
The session -- part of TENDERtalk - a series of BRAC Bank’s internal learning sessions -- was organized on a digital platform today, April 6, 2021, with more than 650 participants. The objective of this session was to sensitize the employees on the third gender issues, a press release said.
Tashnuva Anan Shishir said: "I had to prove to the society that I exist. Today, I feel honoured that BRAC Bank invited me to talk about my journey with its senior executives. I appreciate this change-making initiative and I'm hopeful that this will further open the path for social inclusion of the trans-persons in the formal job markets".
She is now pursuing a Master's in Public Health at BRAC University, where she is the first trans-person to receive a scholarship to obtain a master's degree. She has been a leader in various Bangladeshi NGOs supporting the trans-persons, such as Bondhu Social Welfare, TransEnd, the National Human Rights Commission of Bangladesh, Rethink, and her platform, Shree: Voice of Sexual Minority.
BRAC Bank's Head of Human Resources Akhteruddin Mahmood said: "BRAC Bank is a pioneer in taking change-making initiatives, be it financial inclusion of the CMSMEs, or the social inclusion of the less fortunate people. Earlier, we employed acid victims in our workforce and we're planning to employ the trans-persons in our bank. Tashnuva's struggle and success have made us confident towards the inclusion of all walks of people in our bank".
TENDERtalk is a BRAC Bank HR-initiated series of dialogue for the employees to lead many changes in the society. The HR team invites experts and activists to TENDERtalk and the invitees share their knowledge and experiences with BRAC Bank’s people.

The project will work directly with the target population and will intervene to improve their living conditions, education, health, and income opportunities.

The 'Swipe Load' loan tenure will be 12 months. The interest rate for this facility is 9 per cent for businesses owned by male proprietors and 7 per cent for female proprietors. Interest will be charged and deducted quarterly on the utilized amount of daily Swipe Load day-end balance.

Dhaka, Monday, March 8, 2021: BRAC Bank has recently organized a day-long training programme on “Prevention of Trade-Based Money Laundering” for its people.
Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit (BFIU) lent resources to run the training programme held on Saturday, February 27, 2021.
Former Bangladesh Bank deputy governor and Head of BFIU Abu Hena Mohd Razee Hassan inaugurated the training programme as the chief guest.
Sawkatul Alam, General Manager, BFIU, was also present as Special Guest in the programme.
A.K.M. Nurunnabi, Deputy General Manager, BFIU, and Syed Kamrul Islam, Deputy General Manager, BFIU, were the key resource persons of the training.
The Head of BFIU said: "BFIU is taking stringent measures to identify threats and vulnerabilities that could undermine the integrity of the financial institutions. Hence prevention of trade-based money laundering is an important issue for all banks. BFIU is happy to extend its hands to support the banks in better understanding of the issues and reasons of suspicious transactions and activity reporting."
The Government of Bangladesh promulgated the Money Laundering Prevention Act, 2002. Subsequently, to meet emerging international standards, subsequent amendments were made in 2008 and 2012. The main objective of the 2012 Act is to tackle illegal money transfers to different countries.
Selim R. F. Hussain, the Managing Director and CEO of BRAC Bank, thanked the senior BFIU officials for spending the day at the bank's head office for the training programme.
Hussain said: "There is all kind of customers in a bank and a few of the not-so-honest always lurk for taking advantage of the law. Some of their transactions, exports, and imports are such that you will not be able to find an ill purpose in them."
"As the government pays special attention to this issue, continuous efforts are being made to prevent it, and trade-based money laundering laws have been enacted. Banking professionals have a lot of responsibility to ensure proper implementation of this law", he added.
Hussain also mentioned some of BRAC Bank's state-of-the-art technologies for price verification, tracking of vessels and containers, cross-checking and screening of transaction history to combat trade-based money laundering.
More than 600 BRAC Bank employees joined the training programme via a digital platform while the department and unit heads along with the bank's senior management were present physically.

Dhaka, Thursday, February 18, 2021: Moody's Investor Service has upgraded the Foreign Currency credit rating for BRAC Bank in December-2020 to Ba3 from B1.
Moody’s also reaffirmed BRAC Bank’s Local Currency Deposit Rating as "Ba3" - the highest for any Bangladeshi bank rated by Moody's. This is the fourth consecutive year that the bank has obtained the highest credit rating from the internationally renowned rating agency.
Moody's statement mentions that BRAC Bank's rating reflects the bank's robust profitability and capitalization, strong asset quality compared with those of its industry peers; driven by its competitive advantage in the higher-yielding small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) segment; and stable funding profile and liquidity.
Commenting on the issue, Selim RF Hussain, managing director of BRAC Bank said, "BRAC Bank stands on a solid ground with stable funding and liquidity, supported by our good governance, brand reputation, and sizable distribution network".
Moody's report also says that BRAC Bank's capitalization is the highest among the Bangladeshi banks that they rate, supported by strong internal capital generation and a conservative dividend policy.
It is mentionable that BRAC Bank is the only Bangladeshi bank to maintain the sovereign rating standard of Ba3 for four consecutive years.

Dhaka, Wednesday, February 10, 2021: BRAC Bank has recognized 62 of its COVID-19 Heroes who performed at the forefront and back-office, and served the customers during the challenging times of 2020, said a press release.
Bangladesh Bank had directed all the scheduled banks in its BRPD Circular Letter No. 18 to provide special healthcare insurance and grant-in-aid to the frontline employees who were infected with COVID-19 while performing their duties during the government-declared general holidays in 2020.
Akhteruddin Mahmood, Head of HR of BRAC Bank said: "BRAC Bank has contributed BDT 35.3 million to acknowledge 62 of its people who were infected by COVID-19 during that time frame. Unfortunately, one among the 62 employees could not survive the COVID impact. The family was compensated in December 2020 with five-times of the allocated fund for the employee as per the BRPD circular."
Selim RF Hussain, the managing director and CEO of BRAC Bank said: "We are proud to have such valiant front-liners among us. We have come this far and resurged from that difficult time because of the courage, commitment, and valor of these people who provided uninterrupted service to our valued customers in a time the entire world closed down. We express our heartfelt gratitude to them."
As a values-based financial institution, BRAC Bank’s Health Insurance Policy also covered the cost of treatment for the employees who were infected by COVID-19.

BRAC Bank celebrates fast-growing agent banking network
Dhaka, Wednesday, January 27, 2021: BRAC Bank has reached the milestone of building a network of 500 Agent Banking outlets, according to a press release of the bank issued today.
The bank inaugurated 50 new Agent Banking outlets in 27 districts across the country in a single event held over a digital platform today to join the milestone of 500.
Commenting on this achievement, the Managing Director and CEO of BRAC Bank, Selim RF Hussain, said: "We are proud to have reached the milestone of opening 500 Agent Banking within a short period of time. I would thank all our Agent Banking partners and my Agent Banking colleagues for this remarkable achievement."
The number of the bank's Agent Banking outlets stands at 500 to date, starting from October 2018 with 10 outlets in 8 divisions.
BRAC Bank, a pioneer in SME banking, currently serves its customers through 187 branches, 456 SME unit offices, and 374 ATM and CDM booths across the country. Earlier, the bank held a digital event to open 50 new agent banking outlets in 27 districts reaching to 500 Agent Banking outlets in 64 districts.
Nazmur Rahim, Head of Alternate Banking Channel of BRAC Bank, said: "BRAC Bank is making relentless efforts to drive financial inclusion across the country. Agent Banking is an ideal model to take the banking services to a customer's neighborhood, especially benefitting the disadvantaged and lower-income people in remote locations."
He said: "Our agents are our development partners, our representative to the mass people. Together we pledge to make more contributions to the sustainable development of the country."
BRAC Bank has a dedicated Agent Banking app that helps the outlets provide services that other commercial banks can't. It also developed an Agent Banking manual for its partners so that their collective services promise advanced technology-based banking experience and reliable customer service. It will help the bank become a preferred institution of trust and confidence among people from all walks of life, Rahim added.
BRAC Bank management also expressed gratitude to the government, the Bangladesh Bank, and other regulatory authorities at the event.

Dhaka, Tuesday, January 26, 2021: BRAC Bank Agent Banking has introduced a new community engagement programme titled 'Uthan Boithok'.
'Uthan Boithok' was first launched in December 2020 with the objective to bring more unbanked people to avail the financial services at the agent outlets and add value to the national economy, especially in geographically remote and rural locations.
The agent of an Agent Banking Outlet arranges 'Uthan Boithok' with support from the district level Agent Banking officials. BRAC Bank has organized 5 Uthan Boithoks to date in different districts.
Selim RF Hussain, the Managing Director and CEO of BRAC Bank, said: "BRAC Bank was found to spearhead financial inclusion in the country and Agent Banking is one of our key channels to achieve that goal. Starting in 2018, we have one of the fastest-growing Agent Banking networks in Bangladesh".
Nazmur Rahim, BRAC Bank's Head of Alternate Banking Channel, said: "Uthan Boithok is a unique initiative to enhance financial awareness and enrich people’s knowledge about the bank and banking. They are more inspired when they get to learn together about our products and services i.e., DPS, FDR, overseas remittance processes and opening accounts. It is encouraging to see that the people are participating and contributing more to the economy."
The Agent Banking field officials along with BRAC Bank's respective Branch Managers and other branch officials as well as the SME Unit Office representatives participate in the 'Uthan Boithok' programme and discuss the rules and benefits of banking through Agent Banking outlets.
Agent banking is defined as the banking service provided outside of regular bank branches by engaged agents under a valid agency agreement. It was first introduced in Bangladesh by Bangladesh Bank in 2013.

Dhaka, Monday, January 11, 2021: Bangladesh Bank (BB) and BRAC Bank have jointly organized a workshop for enhancing the knowledge of BRAC Bank officials on SME financing.
BB lends resources to run the workshop that is part of the Second Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise Development Project (SMEDP-2), funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
Cottage, Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (CMSMEs) are considered the lifeblood of emerging economies. Bangladesh Bank is contributing significantly to promote CMSMEs in Bangladesh. They issued an FID circular no.01/2017 on November 15, 2017, to implement SMEDP-2.

Around 21 banks and 12 NBFIs (non-banking financial institutions) have signed agreements as PFIs in the project. BRAC Bank officials related to SME financing and SMEDP-2 took part in the virtual workshop.
Prashanta Mohan Chakraborty, Joint Director, Bangladesh Bank and Project Manager of SMEDP-2, and Mahfuza Akter Tenni, Assistant Director, Bangladesh Bank, and Project Officer of SMEDP-2, were resource persons for the workshop.
The trainers discussed Bangladesh Bank's guidelines and initiatives regarding SME financing, gave an overview of policies and guidelines of SMEDP-2, and also talked about the application procedures and common mistakes of refinancing applications in the capacity building workshop.
A. K. M. Fazlur Rahman, Executive Director, Bangladesh Bank and Project Director of SMEDP-2, was the chief guest at the workshop while Rezaul Karim Sarkar, Deputy General Manager, Bangladesh Bank and Deputy Project Director of SMEDP-2, was present as special guest.
Selim RF Hussain, the Managing Director and CEO of BRAC Bank, and Syed Abdul Momen, Head of SME, were also present during the workshop.
The virtual workshop took place on January 5, 2021, Tuesday, at the BRAC Bank head office in the capital’s Tejgaon district.

Partnered Phoenix Insurance and Adorsho Pranisheba Limited to boost the livestock industry
Dhaka, Thursday, December 31, 2020: BRAC Bank, in partnership with Phoenix Insurance and Adorsho Pranisheba Limited, has launched a project for cattle farmers in Bangladesh.
The project, dubbed Khamari, will ensure financial support and inclusion of the livestock farmers. It will also provide the farmers with digital means for better cattle-caring.
The livestock will also be insured so that the farmers can benefit from mitigating the risk of livestock loss caused by accidental death, diseases, partial disability, or even death during calving.
MA Mannan, MP, Honorable Minister, Ministry of Planning, formally inaugurated Khamari at a virtual ceremony held on December 30, 2020.
Selim R. F. Hussain, Managing Director & CEO, BRAC Bank; Md. Jamirul Islam, Managing Director & CEO, Phoenix Insurance; Fida Haq, Managing Director & CEO, Adorsho Pranisheba Limited; Syed Abdul Momen, Head of SME Banking, BRAC Bank; Dr. Aolad Hossain, Livestock Researcher, and Columnist; and Dr. SM Nazrul Islam, President, Bangladesh Veterinary Association, were also present at the inauguration.
"I believe that the Khamari project will further develop and enrich the country's livestock sector. It will encourage our farmers to raise livestock commercially and create new entrepreneurs across the country, especially in rural areas. Khamari will surely strengthen the economy", the Planning Minister said.
Selim R. F. Hussain said: “Since its inception, BRAC Bank has a particular focus on SME financing with a broader vision of financial inclusion and pro-poor growth. Khamari, I think, will boost the country’s cattle rearing sector and encourage more people to start farming commercially on a bigger scale. This initiative bears testimony to the bank’s commitment to digital experience as well as inclusive banking, especially for the small and marginal farmers".
Md. Jamirul Islam said: “We are excited to roll out insurance coverage facility for the cattle farmers. We shall continue to introduce more innovative products in partnerships to cater to the needs of the small businesses.”
Phoenix Insurance will provide full insurance with support from Adorsho Pranisheba, who will provide IoT Tracking System and Facial Recognition by Artificial Intelligence for livestock in this project.
Fida Haq explained how the Pranisheba App will work for the farmers and how they could benefit from this digital cattle monitoring platform. He said, "The purpose of Pranisheba is to contribute to the overall economic development of cattle farms, including the provision of livestock insurance using technology in rural areas of the country".
He expressed confidence that with Khamari, a new age for the cattle insurance industry will rise in Bangladesh.
Adorsho Pranisheba Limited is one of the leading AgriTech startups in Bangladesh and working to develop an ecosystem in the livestock and agricultural sector under the Companies Act, 1994.

Dhaka, Sunday, December 27, 2020: BRAC Bank has completed its disbursement process of the Tk 20,000-crore stimulus fund for the cottage, micro, small and medium enterprises (CMSMEs). The bank is one of the first three banks in the country to have completed the process, a press release said.
As of December 3, banks have disbursed about BDT 8,600 crore among 52,000 CMSMEs according to the central bank's latest data, media reports said.
BRAC Bank, a pioneer for SME lending in Bangladesh, is among the first three banks that have completed the disbursement process. The two others are Bangladesh Krishi Bank and Rajshahi Krishi Unnayan Bank.
As of December 24, 2020, BRAC Bank has disbursed BDT 1,185 crore to 12,669 CMSMEs across the country. Starting from June 2020, the bank took only six months to complete its massive disbursement target of BDT 1,100 crore.
Considering the performance, Bangladesh Bank has recently allotted an additional BDT 200 crore to BRAC Bank for disbursement.
BRAC Bank's Head of SME, Syed Abdul Momen, said: "We are glad to have closed the disbursement before the deadline. Payment of small loans typically takes longer as it takes more time to scrutinize the documents of the CMSMEs. However, with the guidance of the Central Bank, slowly but steadily, we have completed the disbursement and kept our promise."
He added, "Even during the outbreak of COVID-19 in Bangladesh, we continued our support to the CMSMEs. We have disbursed more than 61,000 loans to the CMSMEs that accounts for BDT 10,181 crore as of November 30, 2020".
BRAC Bank's Managing Director and CEO, Selim RF Hussain, said: "BRAC Bank has always been a pro-SME bank. I thank our government for coming up with the much-needed stimulus packages for the CMSMEs and proactively demonstrating ways to damage-control of the economic losses."
To avert effects on the CMSMEs and encourage the banks to disburse stimulus packages, the government announced loans at 4 per cent for the CMSMEs; as banks charge the CMSMEs 9 per cent interest, the government announced that it would bear 5 per cent of the interest.
"Our central bank deserves a big thanks for their continuous support and encouragement to look for the CMSMEs and also for sustaining us with policy relaxation and deadline extensions," he added.
The deadline for disbursing the CMSMEs' bailout funds is December 31, 2020.

Dhaka, Thursday, December 24, 2020: BRAC Bank Limited has contributed 50,000 pieces of blankets to the Prime Minister’s Relief and Welfare Fund for helping the underprivileged across the country in the winter.
Earlier in October, the private commercial banks, along with their advisory service organization, Bangladesh Association of Banks (BAB), made commitments to contribute blankets to the relief fund and handed over a token at a digital event at the Prime Minister's office in Dhaka. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina joined the programme through videoconferencing from her official residence.
Starting from November 30, 2020, BRAC Bank completed the delivery of the 50,000 blankets on December 22, 2020.

Dhaka, Sunday, December 20, 2020: BRAC Bank has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Bangladesh Export Zones Authority (BEZA) for setting up a branch at the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Industrial City, a press release said.
The signing ceremony took place at the city’s Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel on Monday, December 14, 2020.
Principal Secretary of the Prime Minister's Office, Dr. Ahmad Kaikaus was present as the chief guest at the event.
Tareq Refat Ullah Khan, Deputy Managing Director and Head of Corporate Banking of BRAC Bank; Sheikh Yusuf Harun, Secretary, Ministry of Public Administration; Maksudur Rahman Patwary, Senior Secretary, Ministry of Land were special guests at the event.
Paban Chowdhury, (Secretary) Executive Chairman of BEZA chaired the discussion.
BRAC Bank, through this new branch, will provide all banking services and customized financial services to the organizations in Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Industrial City, one of the biggest export zone hubs by BEZA that has already become a focus of interest of many local and foreign investors.
An agreement was also signed between bKash and BEZA to expedite the transaction of BEZA's One-Stop Service (OSS) Center.
bKash, a BRAC Bank subsidiary and the largest mobile financial service provider in Bangladesh, will expedite the operation of BEZA's OSS center and ensure a fast payment system for organizations to pay the OSS service charges through bKash app.
In the event, BEZA also signed a land-leasing agreement with CCECC, a Chinese company that will build an export-oriented steel structure and ready-mix concrete industry at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Industrial City. The company will invest USD 15.97 million in the 10 acres of land, which will provide employment to about 350 people.
On the other hand, BEZA also allotted 8 acres of land to Jiuhong Medical Instrument Co., Ltd. that has proposed an investment of USD 12.72 million and will provide employment to about 1,500 people. A leasing agreement was also signed between BEZA and Jiuhong.
BEZA is working to build a modern and full-fledged industrial city on about 33,000 acres of land in Sitakunda, Mirsarai, and Sonagazi Upazilas in the Chattogram region, dubbed 'Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Industrial City'.

Dhaka, Sunday, December 13, 2020: BRAC Bank has announced a strategic initiative aimed at improving digital financial services for Bangladeshi migrants living and working abroad.
Supported by the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), a UN agency focused primarily on making public and private finance work for the poor in 47 least developed countries, the new initiative aims at improving options for remittances—the funds that migrants send to their loved ones back home—by expanding digital remittance channels and linking digital remittances to other financial products.
The COVID-19 crisis heightened the need for digital financial products. The dominant remittance model has long relied on migrants bringing physical cash to a bricks-and-mortar money transfer outlet in the host country and transacting in person: lockdowns made that impossible for months. BRAC Bank’s new initiative will ensure that its innovative solutions and digital remittance channels present the migrant workers of Bangladesh and their remittance beneficiaries at home with easy access to cashless remittance transactions and secure savings under online banking networks. The migrant customers and their in-country loved ones will also receive training and social media tutorials. Remittance receivers will be able to receive remittances to their accounts or wallets, through various channels like in cards, faster direct account credits, and even without exchange houses in the middle through white-label app products.
Selim RF Hussain, the Managing Director and CEO of BRAC Bank, said in this regard: “We are proud to be associated with UNCDF for expanding the financial ecosystem beyond remittances to enable greater financial inclusion for the Bangladeshi diaspora and their families as well.”
With support from the UNCDF, BRAC Bank will link the remittance channel with its value-added services and strengthen digital use-cases to encourage migrant wage earners to send remittances using the Bank’s cashless remittance channel. It will allow the migrants and their beneficiaries to benefit by saving time and cost as well as circumventing mobility and access constraints.
For UNCDF, the work with BRAC Bank is one part of a global push towards inclusive digital economies that leave no one behind.
“More than 270 million people, or roughly four percent of the global population, live and work outside their home countries,” explained Amil Aneja, UNCDF lead specialist on migration and remittances. “Like everyone else, they and their families back home need safe, affordable, and convenient financial services. As one of the ten biggest remittance-receiving countries in the world, Bangladesh is an important market for UNCDF’s work in this area, even more so since the volume is expected to grow by an estimated eight per cent, to USD 20 billion, in the next year. We look forward to working with BRAC Bank, which has a strong history of innovation, to scale up digital remittances as the gateway product for broader financial inclusion.”

Dhaka, Thursday, December 10, 2020: BRAC Bank has retained long-term and short-term issuer credit ratings of B+ and B, respectively, from S&P Global Ratings.
The outlook on the long-term rating is stable, the rating agency said in a report on December 2, 2020.
BRAC Bank is the only Bangladeshi bank that has been assigned with an issuer credit rating by S&P.
The ratings reflect the bank's good management and business franchise in the domestic retail and SME segments; and asset quality and capitalization that are above the industry average.
These factors are, however, offset by the challenging operating environment amid COVID-19 induced economic slowdown and substantial credit risk in the economy, as well as the reduced profitability due to pressure on interest margin and credit cost.
The stable outlook on BRAC Bank reflects S&P's view that the bank will steadily navigate challenging operating conditions in Bangladesh and maintain its financial profile over the next 12-18 months.
Selim RF Hussain, Managing Director and CEO of BRAC Bank, said, "We are pleased with the B+ long-term insurer rating by S&P Global Ratings as it demonstrates the overall financial strength of BRAC Bank. It reflects our quality of management in identifying SME and retail segments as our niche to improve the operating competitiveness. We look forward to keeping steady progress and remain the most trusted bank in Bangladesh."
S&P report also says that it could upgrade BRAC Bank if its profitability improves while remaining higher than the industry average, and the bank sustainably increases its market share without strategic or operational missteps. This could be shown by sustained good asset quality metrics, prudential underwriting standards, and healthy capitalization.
Conversely, the risk of a lower rating lies if the bank's asset quality deteriorates sharply, for example due to prolonged reduction in economic activity in Bangladesh, the report says.
S&P Global Ratings is an American credit rating agency and a division of S&P Global that publishes financial research and analysis on stocks, bonds, and commodities.

Dhaka, Thursday, November 26, 2020: BRAC Bank has recently organized a workshop for the foreign airlines operating in Bangladesh on the revised regulations for remitting their surplus earnings.
The Foreign Exchange Operation Department of Bangladesh Bank issued SPA Circular No. 1 on September 3, 2020, simplifying its rules on surplus earnings remittance by the foreign airlines. The foreign airline operators had been demanding simplification of the remittances for quite some time before the circular came.
Nabanita Dey, Joint Director, Foreign Exchange Operation Department, and Salma Akhtar, Deputy Director, Foreign Exchange Operation Department of Bangladesh Bank, were guest speakers at the workshop and provided answers to the queries of the foreign airline representatives in a Q&A session.
Tareq Refat Ullah Khan, DMD and Head of Corporate Banking at BRAC Bank, welcomed the participants to the workshop held at the bank's head office. He also presented BRAC Bank's portfolio before the participants in managing such a complex remittance process and highlighted the bank's fervor in this matter.
Selim RF Hussain, the Managing Director and CEO of the bank, inaugurated the workshop. He said, "We are happy that the central bank has paid attention to simplify the remittance process of airlines. It will not only reduce the hassle of piles of documentation that was a necessity earlier, but will also drive us towards embracing the digital way of work".
Shaheen Iqbal, Head of Treasury and Financial Institutes of BRAC Bank, made a presentation on Bangladesh's economic outlook amidst the post-pandemic situation and highlighted the opportunities that will help the airline industry recovering from the COVID-19 impact.
Bangladesh Bank, in its SPA Circular No. 1, has allowed the calculation of surplus earnings of the foreign airline operators based on passage and freight collections. Besides, the banks were allowed to remit on account of surplus earnings against passage and freight based on actual realization. The remittance would now be allowed upon all collections, supported by bank statements.
Bangladesh Bank has also scrapped the requirement of producing hard copies as proof of sales of tickets. Form P or Form P-2, from outgoing passengers against sales of tickets in the local currency, will no longer be required, the central bank officials said in the workshop.
Around 25 participants from different airlines, including representatives from the leading airline companies operating in Bangladesh, participated in the workshop. Participants maintained appropriate social distancing, hygiene, and health precautions during the 2-hour session.

Dhaka, Wednesday, November 4, 2020: BRAC Bank, on Wednesday, launched 'Agami', a package of solutions to help students with their plans to study abroad.
"Agami is BRAC Bank’s complete student file solution. It will provide all necessary facilities to the students traveling abroad for study purposes," said Mahiul Islam, Head of Retail Banking of BRAC Bank.
'Agami' comes with four beneficial features for the students: a student file, a study-abroad credit card, a savings account, and an education insurance coverage.
While the student file service will enable a more convenient transfer of the education expenses for the families, the study-abroad credit card, endorsed with foreign currency, will be helpful for the students in meeting their day-to-day living expenses as well as emergencies. The credit card comes with a 100% waiver on the first year annual fee and a referral campaign for students with an opportunity to get cashback and bonus reward points on foreign currency endorsements to their cards.
'Agami' also offers students with educational insurance coverage of up to BDT 1 crore. It is an opt-in facility and in the event of a parent’s death, the insurance company will pay for the remaining tuition fees of the student.
BRAC Bank will also offer a 'Happy Savers Account' for these students that can be opened with BDT 1,000 only and provides students with an opportunity of interest-earning from any balance.
For details, customers can call BRAC Bank’s Call Center at 16221 or email to [email protected] or call the dedicated hotline number for student file service at 01713110172.

The speakers highlighted how the COVID-19 pandemic has forced entrepreneurs, especially women, to face many new challenges, and obligated them into a severe liquidity crisis. As the government has offered several stimulus packages for different industries and businesses to seize the economic crisis, it is crucial to learn the right processes and proper channels to avail them during this challenging time. The speakers also discussed how women could take leverage of TARA, a women banking initiative by BRAC Bank, to obtain more inclusive access to finance.
BRAC Bank was recently named the Access to Finance Champion by the Financial Alliance for Women for championing the Women's Economy agenda through TARA. Collaboration with ITC will further support the bank to achieve its objectives in empowering the women.

Dhaka, Wednesday, October 28, 2020: BRAC Bank has recently teamed up with Rural Reconstruction Foundation (RRF) to provide credit facility to marginal farmers.
This partnership is a result of the agreement between BRAC Bank and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Feed the Future (FtF) Bangladesh Rice and Diversified Crops (RDC) Activity to support the farmers. Both parties agreed to disburse loans through the Microfinance Institutions (MFIs) network for the project, and thus, RRF has come on-board, said a press release.
RRF, established in 1982, is a non-profit social welfare organization and specializes in micro-financing. As of June 30, 2019, RRF has BDT 4,750.27 million outstanding loans in the micro-credit and agriculture sectors to some 181,225 borrowers and 233,502 individual members.
This agreement will lead RRF to provide a fresh credit facility to 1,000 farmers, including 800 female farmers, in the USAID FTF zone.
BRAC Bank will ensure necessary financial services to RRF for providing an uninterrupted credit facility to the farmers in 21 districts under the FTF zone. The bank will also support RRF in establishing safety measures and practices by providing hand sanitizers, face masks, and gloves to create a safe environment for the farmers. It will cut the fence for the farmers and encourage them to avail of formal banking services.
Through this agreement, the bank aims to provide financial services in the form of credit for crops which fall under profitable rice-based cropping pattern in the FTF zones.
Syed Abdul Momen, Head of SME Banking, BRAC Bank, said: “This brings a wonderful opportunity for us to reach out to the marginal farmers in the FTF zone and introduce them to the banking facilities. We are pleased to collaborate with RRF, and we hope to harness the waves of financial inclusion in the southern part of the country.”
Philip Biswas, Executive Director, RRF, said: “We are delighted to partner up with BRAC Bank to offer credit for crops to our farmers. It will certainly benefit the farmers to take a turnaround from the consequences that resulted from COVID-19 pandemic.”

Dhaka, Sunday, October 25, 2020: BRAC Bank, in partnership with Bangladesh Computer Samity (BCS), has launched a financial solution named "Uddom" to support the BCS members.
'Uddom' is not just a loan package, but a holistic financial solution meant for supporting the ICT sector and nearly two-and-a-half thousand BCS members in their recovery from the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The inauguration ceremony was organized on a digital platform on Saturday, October 24, 2020.
State Minister for Information and Communication Technology Zunaid Ahmed Palak, MP was the chief guest at the inauguration ceremony.
Other eminent guests included Sonia Bashir Kabir, Founder of SBK Tech Ventures; Md. Shahid-ul-Munir, President, BCS; Mohammed Monirul Islam, Secretary-General, BCS; Selim RF Hussain, Managing Director and CEO of BRAC Bank, and Syed Abdul Momen, Head of SME, BRAC Bank.
BRAC Bank’s head of SME, Syed Abdul Momen, explained how 'Uddom' solution would help the small and medium ICT entrepreneurs with access to finance and preferred facilities.
‘Uddom’ will enable BCS members to get unsecured loans of up to one crore taka at a 9 per cent interest, while for women entrepreneurs, the interest rate will be 7 per cent. BRAC Bank will also install a booth for facilitating the deposit services. The bank's online SME business suite will help BCS member-clients to showcase their inventory and find better positioning for their products.
Established in 1987, BCS has seamlessly been serving the public and private sector ICT stakeholders of the country for the last three decades.
BRAC Bank will also provide relevant document related support regarding obtaining membership for nonmember clients, deploy dedicated loan officers at its Elephant Road branch, set up a dedicated SME helpline for BCS member-clients, and provide dedicated relationship officers in all the seven divisions. BCS members will get a free debit card and free internet banking solutions from the bank.
Any interested ICT entrepreneur will need to have at least 2-year running BCS membership to avail of the facilities.
Appreciating this initiative, State Minister Zunaid Ahmed Palak said: “We thank BRAC Bank for caring about this sector and coming forward to support the entrepreneurs in this challenging time.”
He added: "BRAC is not just an organization, it's a brand that represents Bangladesh in the global arena. I encourage BRAC Bank to continue its support to the SMEs and help aspiring entrepreneurs boost the country's economy."
He also said: "We consider BCS as an important stakeholder to achieve the vision of a Digital Bangladesh. I would encourage the BCS members to set up manufacturing and assembling plants for accessories and computer parts as well as smart devices."
He promised to support BRAC Bank-funded BCS members to have spaces in the 28 high-tech parks and 64 Sheikh Kamal IT Training Incubation Centres.
Sonia Bashir Kabir congratulated BRAC Bank and BCS for this timely initiative, saying: "This will surely help to reduce the four billion credit gap in the SME sector and help the SMEs to become more successful. I would encourage BRAC Bank to simplify the underwritings for the small and medium entrepreneurs."
BRAC Bank's MD and CEO Selim R.F. Hussain said: "SME is in our DNA. We will carry out the legacy of our founder late Sir Fazle Hasan Abed KCMG to support the ‘missing middle’ of the society. We are the biggest collateral-free lender in the country and we'll continue this to ensure financial liberty and inclusion and play a positive role in making Bangladesh digital."
BCS Secretary-General Mohammed Monirul Islam said: “Both parties will benefit from this partnership. Uddom will be a blessing for the BCS members in overcoming the liquidity crisis.”
BCS President Md. Shahid-ul-Munir made the concluding remarks and said: “The ICT entrepreneurs, of which most are below the age of 35, suffered a lot in the last few months. I thank BRAC Bank for taking this noble initiative to stand by them. We will make progress together and establish 'Made in Bangladesh' a slogan of our international identity.”
He also informed the audience that at least 26 of their entrepreneurs have already launched the production of tech commodities.

A news article published on October 19, 2020 in some newspapers stating that "BRAC Bank seeks a stay on Jaha Alam's compensation order" has come to the notice of BRAC Bank. This post states that BRAC Bank has filed a petition with the High Court seeking a stay on its previous order asking the bank to provide Tk 15 lakh as compensation to Mr. Jaha Alam, who was wrongly identified and detained by the law enforcing agency for three years in a loan fraud case.
Firstly, we would like to reiterate that the BRAC Bank deeply regrets the suffering experienced by Mr. Jaha Alam and will support all efforts to rehabilitate the young man. At the same time, we must highlight that the Bank has not yet received the certified copy of the full order of the judgment of the case and, in the circumstances, it would not be right to comment on the issue without the full facts.

Financial Alliance for Women awards BRAC Bank for the fourth time
Dhaka, Sunday, October 11, 2020: BRAC Bank has again been named as the Access to Finance Champion by the Financial Alliance for Women. This is for the fourth consecutive time that BRAC Bank’s name was announced as winner in this category.
The announcement came in the 2020 Alliance Summit held from October 6 to 8, 2020, on a digital platform.
Financial Alliance for Women is the leading members’ network of financial organizations in 135 countries dedicated to championing the female economy that remains untapped.
The award is given each year to the outstanding Alliance member-institutions that work to serve their women customers better by providing them with holistic solutions to meet their investment needs. This year, the Female Economy Champions reflect the global nature of the work of the Alliance, hailing from diverse markets across six different regions.
Inez Murray, Chief Executive Officer of the Financial Alliance for Women, while announcing the results, said: “These institutions are setting an example for the sector by developing the program and strategies needed to tap into the female economy and making their brand more sustainable along the way. Their engagement with the Alliance network is essential to our mission and work of economically empowering women worldwide. They are proof of the business case for increasing gender equality on many scores.”
BRAC Bank was named the 'Access to Finance Champion' for continuously evolving its products and services under 'TARA' to expand its reach to female customers.
Commenting on this achievement, Selim R.F. Hussain, Managing Director and CEO of BRAC Bank, said” "It is indeed a great pride and honor for BRAC Bank to win this award consecutively for the fourth time! It encourages us and instills confidence in us when we see our work is being appreciated not only in our country but also through global networks."
BRAC Bank launched 'TARA', a dedicated banking solution for women, in May 2017, and since then has been focusing on evolving changes that are best suited for the women of Bangladesh.
“Championing the women’s economy is both a means to progressing the financial inclusion agenda of developing countries and, at the same time, a great business opportunity. It is something we must do to further social justice and something which is perfectly aligned to the values that BRAC Bank stands for,” Hussain added.
The recorded videos of the 2020 Alliance Summit will be available on the Financial Alliance of Women Youtube channel after 12 October 2020.

Dhaka, Thursday, October 8, 2020: BRAC Bank has begun its remittance business with two new tech-savvy remitting companies from Japan and South Korea.
The Bangladeshi wage earners working in these two countries will now be able to remit money through these companies.
The bank has partnered with N &P Japan Co Ltd, known better as QS Remit in the APAC region, for its remittance option in Japan. The company is currently remitting to more than 15 countries with branches in Japan and South Korea.
In South Korea, BRAC Bank has struck partnership with E9 Pay Co Ltd. The company has collaborations with several banks for facilitating remittance service to 21 countries. BRAC Bank is their first remitting partner in Bangladesh.
Md. Mahiul Islam, Head of Retail Banking at BRAC Bank said: "We have around 60,000 Bangladesh citizens working in Japan and South Korea. The companies that BRAC Bank has partnered with have robust and secure infrastructures that support remitting flawlessly and in the most cost-effective manner. Through this initiative, we believe that the Bangladeshi expatriates will get the opportunity to move from brick and mortar to real-time digital payment solutions for their loved ones back in this country."
The remittance receivers in Bangladesh can further collect the remitted money from BRAC Bank's country-wide branches, selected SME unit offices, Agent Banking outlets, and bKash wallet.

Dhaka, Tuesday, October 6, 2020: BRAC Bank has announced the launch of remittance service for the bank's Visa cardholders.
BRAC Bank Visa cardholders will now be able to receive remittance from the remitters directly to their debit and credit cards, a press release said.
Visa Direct, the intermediary that will enable the cross-border payments, is a VisaNet processing capability that allows safe, convenient, and real-time funds delivery directly to the financial accounts using card credentials.
This remittance service will initially be available for the Probashi Bangladeshis (NRBs) residing in Malaysia and Singapore. They can directly transfer their remittance to their beneficiary's Visa cards using Maybank2u App in Malaysia and InstaReM App (NIUM) in Singapore.
Md. Mahiul Islam, Head of Retail Banking of BRAC Bank, said, "BRAC Bank is committed to providing the best-in-class experience to the customers. This exciting cross-border fund transfer service will certainly save time, reduce intermediaries, for example, the exchange houses, brokers, etc., and make the remittance service affordable for our invaluable migrants."
Visa will gradually bring more partner global banks to make the service available for NRBs in other countries.
It will be a new channel of legalized remittance transfer with rigorous KYC (Know Your Customer) and multiple steps of sanction screening abiding by the global standards and applicable laws. Remittance service in Visa cards comes as BRAC Bank's journey towards continuous digitalization, partnership, and financial inclusion. This service will make life easier for both the migrant remitters and their beneficiaries.

Dhaka, Thursday, October 01, 2020: BRAC Bank has come forward to extend support to the acid survivors as four them join its workforce today, said a press release.
Bilquis Jahan, Head of Human Resources of BRAC Bank said: “BRAC Bank is an equal opportunity employer. We have taken this step, not just to give them a job but to value their permanence in our society. Acid survivors are often left to the empathy of others, whereas, I believe, they must be regarded as able and heroic contributors of the society.”
The four will be working in different support functions of the bank. Runa Laila, Jhumur Akter, Nusrat Jahan and Rina Parvin Ruma have all been acid attack victims. They are also the single bread-earner of their respective families and lost their job due to the impact of COVID-19 in June.
Jahan said, "We have gone through a proper recruitment process and hired them based on their merit. I believe others can also do the same."
The new joiners expressed their gratitude to BRAC Bank for this opportunity. They believe that it will pave the way for other survivors to fulfill their dreams of working in the corporate sector.

The project will assess the farmers' access to finance for mitigating the impact of COVID-19
Dhaka, Tuesday, September 22, 2020: BRAC Bank and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Feed the Future (FtF) Bangladesh Rice and Diversified Crops (RDC) Activity have entered into a partnership to support the farmers in mitigating the impact of COVID-19.
The partnership intends to extend fresh credit opportunities to the farmers and small and medium-sized agricultural businesses operating in USAID FtF zone. The credit services will be provided through ‘safe touch points (retail outlets)’ of BRAC Bank and through a partnership with MFI channels to “Marginal farmers”.
BRAC Bank will mobilize safe touchpoints (agent banking outlets and SME unit offices) in different Upazilas of the FtF zone.
Syed Abdul Momen, Head of SME at BRAC Bank said, "We are assessing ways to improve farmers' socio-economic life post the COVID-19 hit. We aim to provide financial services in the form of credit for crops which fall under profitable rice-based cropping pattern in the FtF zones. This partnership will also help us leverage the Government stimulus packages and contribute to the agri-sector landscape of the country".
RDC will support BRAC Bank to offer financial services (SME Loans) to local service providers and producers (channel banking farming community) to improve awareness, efficiency, growth, and evidence-based decision-making business models.
More than 1,000 farmers will be impacted during the pilot phase through access to BRAC Bank’s credit facilities. Around 72% of the farmers will be women.
BRAC Bank will also ensure that 20% of the loans go to SMEs that deal with input distribution while 30% will be disbursed to those involved in crop management (including mechanization) and 50% to the post-harvest management, trading, and market linkages through the agent banking outlets or SME unit offices of the bank.
Disbursement of loans will be done through the MFI network to overcome the financial challenges in the coming months and in other similar projects.
Cuan Opperman, Chief of Party of the RDC Activity said, "We are really pleased to be working with BRAC Bank to extend credit to farmers in these challenging times. We hope that this initiative is the first step to expanding access to finance to even more farmers."
The RDC Activity is implemented by ACDI VOCA. ACDI/VOCA is a global development design and delivery partner based in Washington, D.C.

“Digonto” to enable ICT and ITES companies with wider access to finance and business expansion
Dhaka, Sunday, September 20, 2020: BRAC Bank Limited and Bangladesh Association of Software and Information Services (BASIS), have launched a special financial package, “Digonto”, for extending support to the BASIS members.
“Digonto” will enable the ICT and ITES companies with wider access to finance, business expansion, and fixed-asset purchases.
With “Digonto” package, BRAC Bank will grant unsecured and partially-secured loans up to one crore taka to the eligible BASIS members.
This is a unique funding initiative aimed to support the ICT sector in Bangladesh.
BRAC Bank managing director and CEO Selim R. F. Hussain and BASIS President Syed Almas Kabir co-hosted "Digonto" through a virtual launching programme on Saturday, September 19, 2020.
Salman F. Rahman, Honourable Advisor to the Prime Minister on Private Sector Industry and Investment joined the programme as the chief guest.
Ahmed Jamal, Deputy Governor of Bangladesh Bank, and Sheikh Fazle Karim, President of FBCCI were special guests at the event.
Syed Abdul Momen, Head of SME at BRAC Bank, presented the “Digonto” package to the audience and explained how the model will support the BASIS members.
Speaking at the event, Salman F. Rahman thanked both BASIS and BRAC Bank for taking up this initiative. He said, “The IT sector is undoubtedly one of the key role players in realizing the vision of a Digital Bangladesh. Only the visionary banks and organizations can take such a bold step and offer such a comprehensive and structured package to extend support for this promising industry. I believe that this will be an example for others to follow.”
Ahmed Jamal, Deputy Governor of Bangladesh Bank said, "BASIS is doing a wonderful job by working for the betterment of their member organizations. Most of the ICT entrepreneurs are young and it is often difficult for them to give collateral at this age. I would like to thank BRAC Bank for coming forward and supporting the young entrepreneurs through Digonto. I hope this will help the BASIS members to overcome the impact of COVID-19."
Sheikh Fazle Karim, President of FBCCI said, "Digonto could be a role-model to ensure access to finance and bring about holistic changes across all industries to realize the dream of a Digital Bangladesh."
Commenting on this, BRAC Bank's managing director and CEO Selim R. F. Hussain said, "Digonto is not just a loan facility, it is a complete financial package specially designed for the BASIS members. It will also facilitate the required banking services for stimulus package financing, international payments, global business facilitation, and export proceed collection."
BASIS President Syed Almas Kabir facilitated the event and presided over the discussions. He also urged on the digitization of processes to expedite the private-public partnerships and ensure rapid growth of the ICT sector.
"Digonto" will enable the BASIS members to get single installment loans (SILs) and revolving loans (RLs) besides term loans to facilitate the work-order-based financing of the ICT-based companies. Besides, the women entrepreneurs of BASIS will get loans at a rate of 7 per cent only.
BASIS members and media professionals attended the launch event.
