FCMB Opens Flexx Hub, Creates Fun Banking Arena


First City Monument Bank (FCMB) Limited is set to launch its first Flexx Hub, an exclusive banking arena for its youth customers who hold a Flexx account.

According to a statement issued in Lagos, to launch the flagship Flexx Hub, called MediLag, which is located at Lagos University Teaching Hospital, the bank has unveiled a week-long launch event which is expected to end this weekend. .

“With a rich and deep content format hardly seen before now, the Flexx Hub Launch Week will feature a line-up of activities including appearances by popular celebrities, such as music artistes, DJs, photographers, Radio On-Air-Personalities, personal finance planners, entrepreneurial coaches and much more.
In addition, there will be music, dance, game shows and talent contests, where participating youths will get a chance to win a daily Smartphone prize and stand a chance to win the Grand Prize of a Hyundai Veloster in the ongoing Flexx Promo,” the statement stated.

Speaking on the Flexx Hub launch and what makes Flexx different from the generic offering for young people in the Nigerian Banking space, the Divisional Head, Retail Banking at First City Monument Bank (FCMB), Mr. Olu Akanmu said, it is not just an account but a lifestyle platform that offers a customer experience centred around Fun, Future and Banking.

“The tripod of ‘FFB’ is served through digital channels that fit into the lifestyle of the Flexx target market which include the Mobile App, a Microsite and an Online Account Opening platform, all of which allow a potential Flexx customer open an account with FCMB without having to visit a branch. What the physical structure of the Flexx Hub brings to the table is a further simplification of banking as we know it and a place for young customers to breeze through those unavoidably physical ‎banking transactions, while enjoying access to free extras such as wifi, charging ports etc.
