Our client-centred strategy has enabled us to reach out to our individual and business clients in time of need during the Covid-19 national lockdown.’

The Nedbank Contact Centre and advanced digital innovation, including the awardwinning Nedbank Money app, enabled the bank to continue serving clients in the comfort of their homes. Ndhlovu says that for small- and medium-business clients, Nedbank continues to deliver end-to-end solutions through a dedicated business manager. ‘Our business managers are supported by a team of experts across the bank to deliver seamless banking solutions. Our bigger-picture business approach ensures that we are able to take a holistic view of the business by understanding the vision, cashflow cycle, and transactional and capital expenditure needs of the business.

As a responsible corporate citizen, Nedbank in KZN has sought partnerships with businesses in the province to respond to the Covid-19 challenges. ‘Over and above the broad Covid-19 relief measures that all commercial banks committed to, among other initiatives we made donations to Doctors on Call and the Aurum Institute to help kickstart Covid-19 projects that have benefitted our communities immensely. We also continue to participate in the discussions with local government to support local economic recovery initiatives,’ Ndhlovu says.
