The high engagement, in the institution’s view, is the result of the digital strategy of offering a complete ecosystem of services and products.

According to the report, in this quarter the bank reached more than BRL 7.3 billion in total transaction volume in the checkings account, credit and debt cards, a 417% increase over 2020’s Q2. In addition, 691,000 new credit cards were issued, a volume 249% higher than in the 2020’s Q2.

“We believe that the credit card is an important instrument for client engagement, allowing cash flow control and obtaining benefits. In addition, the card is a tool for accessing credit for an audience that receives little attention from banks in general,” said the report.

Credit portfolio

Banco Pan focuses on granting credit to low-income individuals, in addition to public servants, retirees and INSS pensioners, offering payroll-deductible loans (loan and credit card), financing of used vehicles, financing of new motorcycles, conventional credit card and personal loans.
