Many banks offer loans. But what makes the RSME Maybank Loan different? Ang focused on his two-step process.

“[First]we interact with the customer, either he comes to us or we come to him. [Then] we try to understand their real situation. More than suggesting our already integrated products, we try to understand the short and/or long term goals of their business and how the client can seize the scalable opportunities for the business with Maybank.

This two-step process was developed in line with Maybank’s signature experience. Returning to the bank’s mission to “humanize financial services”, Ang pointed out that Maybank’s RSME loan depends on the competitive rates they offer – rates that are tailored to the uniqueness of each customer’s needs.

“[It relies] on our ability to align solutions with the uniqueness of customer needs, also given the evolutionary changes we are witnessing. Due to the pandemic, we think there have really been a lot of opportunities created.

Because they are always available for their clients and because of the relationships they have with them, Maybank has been able to identify areas of potential growth in various businesses. This has allowed them to create a slew of products that they believe most RSME business owners might need.

We are more interested in building relationships. As we are able to do that, that’s when we can say customers can grow or we can grow with them.

With the scalable opportunities they have identified in mind, they use their RSME loan to help businesses in their rehabilitation, growth and expansion.

Besides that, Ang also pointed out that their main selling point is the fact that they offer fast and hassle-free service and approval processes. He also pointed out that the main concern for most clients is the availability of the fund. To address this issue, Maybank offers loans that meet immediate needs, help identify new opportunities, and are easily accessible so business owners can act on them quickly.

What loan formulas are available?

Under the RSME loan, Maybank has two existing packages for as low as P500,000 and up to P50 million. The first is a term loanintended for long-term working capital needs that can finance your business expansion, acquisition of fixed assets, machinery equipment and other business development projects.

Through this, Maybank will help you get a commercial value or a monetary value of what you already own, such as buildings or properties, which will act as collateral.

The second is the Revolving line of credit (RCL), which is short-term working capital that can be used to build up inventory and to liquidate receivables. Ang likened it to a credit card because it works similarly. Depending on the agreed rate, you can withdraw from an approved RCL as much as you want and the next day.

Maybank’s rates for these packages are competitive and follow prevailing market rates. Ang pointed out that Maybank is working with its customers to agree a rate. Since the relationship is not simply transactional, they make it a point to offer rates that will benefit their customers.
