FGB Ocho Rios now joins its Montego Bay branch in serving customers on the north coast of the island.

With this opening, FGB will provide individuals and businesses in Ocho Rios and its environs with a full suite of financial services, powered by the latest in banking technology and with a focus on convenience.

This is the second prototype FGB branch, with the first being opened in Manor Park last December.

In addition to the video teller machine, the new branch features a multi-currency dispenser and an Intelligent Deposit ATM, which gives customers access to a suite of automated services that will take convenience to another level.

Multi-currency Dispenser will allow customers to withdraw Jamaican, Canadian and United States currencies from their accounts.

This feature allows FGB customers to execute cross-currency transactions, conveniently buying the offered currencies at the daily exchange rate.

The Intelligent Deposit ATM will recognise and validate inserted notes for immediate cash deposits, without the hassle of a deposit slip or envelope.
