Through digitalisation in its products and services, CIMB has been proactively enhancing and transforming the banking experience for its customers.

The digital proposition has been well-received, as total deposits in the CIMB OctoSavers Account-i grew by 94% year-on-year as at end-2022.

The Bank has also been continuously enhancing its CIMB Clicks and CIMB OCTO Apps, with the latter being introduced in 2022, as part of its commitment to providing a superior digital-first banking experience.

Besides accelerating digital enablement of its solutions and enhancements to functionality and reliability, additional security measures have also been introduced so customers can bank conveniently, securely and confidently at all times.

CIMB’s approach to digital has seen positive results, with digital adoption driving transaction growth among its customers.

As at end-2022, 80% of CIMB’s customers are digitally active, as the number of active CIMB Clicks users registered a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.9% over the past three years.
