DFCC Bank, a pioneer in sustainable finance and digital innovation, is proud to announce a development to streamline and enhance the banking experience for all its customers. In a move that underscores DFCC Bank’s commitment to sustainability and digital enablement, the Bank can now accept digital signatures placed via LankaSign, becoming one of the first banks in Sri Lanka to offer this service.
The need for secure and trusted digital signatures has become crucial as the world moves towards an increasingly digital future. DFCC Bank recognises this need and has partnered with LankaSign to offer its customers a more convenient and digitally secure way to interact with their Bank. LankaSign is powered by Sri Lanka’s pioneering and leading payments network, LankaPay.
Accordingly, DFCC Bank customers who register with LankaSign can now easily forward all formal requests and transactions to DFCC Bank electronically and use their digital signatures to authenticate and verify these. This innovative value addition simplifies banking processes, reduces reliance on paper, and enhances security by ensuring the authenticity and integrity of electronic transactions. With digital signatures, customers can be confident that their transactions and accounts are protected from unauthorised access and alterations.
Thimal Perera, CEO of DFCC Bank PLC, expressed his enthusiasm about this significant step forward: “At DFCC Bank, we have always aim to lead the way in sustainability and digital innovation. Accepting digital signatures via LankaSign provides our customers a more seamless and secure banking experience. This initiative also aligns perfectly with our commitment to environmental wellbeing, as it reduces the need for paper-based transactions and promotes a greener banking experience.”
This achievement underscores the Bank’s commitment to staying at the forefront of technological advancements and providing its customers with innovative solutions. It also reflects DFCC Bank’s commitment to sustainability as the first, and still only, accredited Green Climate Fund member (GCF) member.
“At DFCC Bank, we’re banking on shaping a sustainable and digitally empowered future, where convenience meets security, and diverse products and services blend with seamless access,” added Asanga Uduwela- COO at DFCC Bank, “We believe that exceptional experiences and sustainable finance are two sides of the same coin, and achieving one, means achieving the other, simultaneously. With this new feature, we look forward to igniting a new era of seamless digital banking.”
DFCC Bank has long been at the forefront of sustainability efforts in Sri Lanka, including being the first Bank to launch a formal sustainability strategy in 2020 and Green Fixed Deposits, more recently. Since 1988, the Bank has spearheaded the financing of renewable energy projects, playing a catalytic role in driving sustainable transformation across the country.
