Ned­bank opens in Alex Mall

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS - ANNA COX @an­na­cox

NED­BANK of­fi­cially launched its new­est branch at the Alex Mall in Alexan­dra, Sand­ton.

Ned­bank said it was com­mit­ted to in­creas­ing ac­cess to bank­ing in grow­ing com­mu­ni­ties across South Africa and was proud to ce­ment a solid bond in Alexan­dra, where the bank has, through the Ned­bank Foun­da­tion, car­ried out a num­ber of CSI projects in the area.

They in­clude sup­port­ing the SU Ikeme­leng Youth Cen­tre with R130 000 since 2013, and Ned­bank staff vol­un­teers giv­ing ex­tra lessons for Grade 5 to 7 pupils from Zen­ze­leni Pri­mary School since 2011.

A heart­beat away from Sand­ton – re­garded by many as South Africa’s eco­nomic hub – Alex was dear to the heart of Ned­bank, as it was a com­mu­nity with vast so­cial and eco­nomic needs, Ned­bank’s Brigitte Ry­der said.

In May, the bank launched its Ned­bank Ke Yona Steel of Ring ini­tia­tive in Alex, aligned to the Ned­bank Cup, which took place in Dur­ban on June 24.

“As Ned­bank, we will con­tinue to use Alex to tell our sto­ries through the eyes of the many peo­ple in the grow­ing com­mu­nity. It is our de­sire as money ex­perts to bank the com­mu­nity and the small busi­ness sec­tor, show­ing them how their money can work for them, and help­ing the SME sec­tor to create jobs and grow the econ­omy,” said Ry­der.

“Open­ing this branch in Alex will al­low lo­cal res­i­dents and the com­mu­nity and small busi­ness to en­joy bank­ing ser­vices with­out hav­ing to travel to large malls, cre­at­ing con­ve­nient bank­ing.

“Ned­bank be­lieves money well man­aged can make a real dif­fer­ence to peo­ple’s lives.”
