Wanfuteng Bank Turns 3

Wanfuteng Bank, is turning three after beginning operations in July 2018.

Led by CEO Ms Catherine Le Bourgeois, Wanfuteng Bank’s focus from its inception has been on providing the highest quality of services for all its customers as well as championing local initiatives.

To date, the Bank has invested close to Vt 10,000,000 in community projects, helping with the relief efforts from the aftermath of Cyclone Harold to supporting the Women’s Handicraft association as well as the Education sector.

With COVID 19 impacting everyone globally, we supported 7 of our major clients with loan repayment holidays.

“We are young, but we are extremely excited about the future,” said Ms Le Bourgeois. “Since our launch, we have made it our mission to make things better for our customers and the people of Vanuatu. We feel part of the local community and want to grow alongside them. In addition to commercial loans, home loans, land loans and car loans, we have expanded our ATM to 3 locations, with additional 2 ATM locations at Tana Russet and Wilco; and introduced Quick Cheque deposit Service. We provide direct remittance services to China.

Wanfuteng Bank was the first financial institution to introduce self-servicing ATM terminals in Port Vila that provide both depositing and withdrawal functions. It also helped install coin-counting machines to facilitate day-to-day transactions.

Wanfuteng, which means ‘Soaring Wealth’ in Chinese, is characterised by its iconic Carp and Lotus logo, which symbolise good fortune and prosperity. The color purple is inspired by women’s role in business and creativity.

“Our logo’s values reflect those of the people of Vanuatu. Just like them, we are creative and we are efficient,” said Ms Le Bourgeois.
