For the records, Guaranty Trust Holding Company (GTCO)’s GTBank stands as the first Bank to introduce cardless transactions on Automated Teller Machines (ATM) in multiple branches across Nigeria. This innovation empowers customers who may have forgotten their ATM cards or do not have one to access cash conveniently anytime, anywhere, Trek Africa Newspaper can report.


GTCO also pioneered the concept of fully unmanned electronic branches (e-branches), where one’s interaction is solely with ATMS and other technological tools, without having to be attended to by bank officials or tellers. This innovation ensures that you can withdraw, deposit, send money, and do much more, in spite of Bank offices being closed for daily business and holidays. It also caters to situations where anyone might deem human interaction unnecessary, and/or when social distancing is required.
