In his speech during the inauguration, Bishop Grech spoke about the need for banks to look beyond profit and to develop a social vocation. This could be achieved by placing humankind at the centre of their activity, investing in the ethical formation of their staff and accompanying their customers in developing a more ethical conscience in their business and economic activity.

Guests were then invited to tour the branch and meet the staff who were led by their Manager Ms. Alexia Cesare. A reception followed. The new Sliema branch is located at 226, Tower Road, Sliema, corner with Dingli Street.
