UnionBank launches 8 more digital branches

Union Bank of the Philippines (UnionBank) recently launched eight more new ARKs or fully digital branches in key locations in the National Capital Region, Luzon and the Visayas.

This brings the bank’s total number of ARKs to 25. The first ARK was launched in September 2017, 11 more in 2018 and another five early this year.

The latest batch includes many firsts: the first ARK in Iloilo (Iloilo Iznart), first ARK in Pampanga (San Fernando City), first ARK in Cavite (Binan, Carmona) and first ARK in Pasay City (Macapagal Avenue). This is aligned with UnionBank’s objective to have at least one ARK in every province or city.

Meanwhile, another ARK was built near the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas on UN Avenue, Manila and one in Katipunan, dubbed as Quezon City’s university belt. The remaining two are in HV Dela Costa, Makati City and Pandacan, Manila which will cater to the corporate segment.

During the launch of the new ARKs, UnionBank senior vice president and chief customer experience officer Ana Delgado highlighted how UnionBank is bringing its clients to the future of banking.
