HFC Bank, a commercial bank in Ghana, has partnered with Visa to launch three new Visa ATM cards that allows customers to access their funds securely while travelling.

The cards namely HFC Prepaid Card, Classic Card and Gold Card will allow cardholders to access their funds on hundreds of Visa enabled ATMs nationwide as well as at about 1.8 million ATMs worldwide, reported Vibe Ghana.

HFC managing director Asare Akuffo told Vibe Ghana: "This visa card is something they have yearned for over the years and we are happy that today it has arrived. It will bring security, convenience and access to millions of Visa outlets all over the world."

HFC Bank executive director of business development Charles Ofori-Acquah said the new cards also provide security features that ensure the safety and security of customers’ transactions.

The cards also feature a Card Verification Value (CVV) 2 to guarantee that the cards cannot be cloned by criminals.

Ofori-Acquah added that the Gold Card has been specifically designed to target the HNW customers, while the Classic card targets the middle market and the Visa Prepaid will focus on those who wish to spend a specific amount of money, for a trip or to buy a specific item.
