Karachi, March 17, 2021: NS Cashpoint recently entered into a partnership with Bank Alfalah, one of the largest private banks in Pakistan, to better serve the Pakistan remittance corridor.
The association with Bank Alfalah will allow both the entities to mutually benefit from each other’s brand value and service offerings in the APAC region while harnessing the larger technological advancements of LuLu Financial Holdings, the parent company of NS Cashpoint. This partnership will enable affordable and faster cross-border transfers, thus driving a greater value proposition for Pakistani ex-pats in Malaysia.
LuLu Financial Holdings has a stake of 70.83 percent in Malaysia’s NS Cashpoint, with NS Cashpoint being one of the leading Money Services providers in Malaysia offering cross-border remittances, currency exchange and banknotes services. Under this collaboration, Pakistani ex-pats residing in Malaysia will be able to send remittances back home through the NS Cashpoint channel.
Malaysia is home to a large number of Pakistani ex-pats working blue- and white-collar jobs in the country, contributing significantly to Malaysia’s economy. This would encourage expats to use more legal channels for remittances, and provide them with a hassle-free transaction process for both senders and receivers.
The partnership will also improve the speed of transfer, reliability, and cost of transfers from Malaysia to Pakistan. Through this partnership, NS Cashpoint customers will get the benefit of sending remittances to Pakistan with ease and on a real-time basis through Bank Alfalah’s swift service, resulting in an increase in the overall volume of the transactions as well.
Overseas Pakistanis residing in Malaysia will be able to use NS Cashpoint’s network to deposit money to any bank account in Pakistan with ease, remit cash over the counter payments, and pay utility and other bills in Pakistan. With this service, Bank Alfalah is reinforcing its commitment to facilitating overseas partners to enable smarter and faster ways of sending home remittances to Pakistan.
“Bank Alfalah always wants to offer customers the best service which would meet their expectations, through strategic alliances with our overseas partners. With these types of alliances, we are always working to improve our service levels and expand our product offerings.
Similarly, our alliance with NS Cashpoint allows us to serve even more overseas Pakistanis residing in Malaysia and their families back home in Pakistan, while promoting the goal of the State Bank of Pakistan to drive remittances through legal banking channels”. said, Faisal Rashid, Head Financial Institutions, Home Remittance & International Business, Bank Alfalah.
Atif Bajwa, President, and CEO, Bank Alfalah stated, “Through this collaboration between Bank Alfalah and NS Cashpoint, we can now extend a more reliable and quicker way of remitting funds to Pakistan from our citizens residing in the APAC region.
Creating safe and secure channels for remittances is essential to encourage and protect the flow of funds and therefore it is critical to partner with established and strong players like NS Cashpoint.”
