Heartland Banking for diaspora

CfC Stanbic Bank now offers a suite of banking products to cater for Kenyans living and working in the Diaspora.

Given our 150-year history, we understand that as a member of the Kenyan diaspora, your banking needs are different from most. That’s why we offer you a full set of products that allow you to send money quickly back home to relatives, manage your money in Kenya, save to build a new home or for your children’s education, amongst other things. All our product solutions can be held in Kenyan shillings or USD, EUR, GBP and ZAR with the exception of the High Yield Savings account which is only available in shillings

We know that you like banking services that are convenient, quick, and easy to use – wherever you are in the world. For this reason we will give you access to a 24/7 customer care center, full internet banking facilities, and give you a personal touch through an Executive Banker who understands your banking needs and will be on call to assist you.

Further, whether you’re in Kenya or the diaspora, signing up for an account is quick and easy. We are happy to take you through the process over the phone and if you are in Kenya or the UK, we can collect your documents from you. If you are in the rest of the diaspora, you can send us your documents via courier. There is no need to go through the hassle of coming into the branch. We bring banking to your doorstep.

Even after 150 years, we’re still moving you forward.

Getting an account is easy

If you are in Kenya feel free to visit any of our branches. Alternatively, if you are in the diaspora, please call our customer care team on the numbers below.
