Kenya-based I&M Bank has collaborated with Visa’s division in the country to introduce new variants of debit and credit cards as part of the bank’s Premium Select segment meant for premium clients.

The I&M Visa Infinite Debit Card and I&M Visa Platinum Credit Card can be availed at more than 20 million local and international merchants that accept Visa.

They offer various services and privileges such as emergency assistance during travel, including blocking of account in case of loss, offering emergency cash or a replacement card.

Furthermore, the credit card provides travel insurance and lifestyle benefits to I&M Bank members, and is accompanied by a supplementary card for cardholder’s relatives.

I&M Bank CEO Kihara Maina said: “This builds upon I&M Bank’s reputation for developing tailor-made products and services specific to our customers’ lifestyle and financial requirements, enhanced by our partnership with Visa, a leading global payments company; whose reputation is anchored on delivering fast, secure and reliable electronic payment solutions.”

The new products additionally come with special Visa shopping offers and benefits which can also be accessed online, and reward points based on usage of the card.
