25 Years of Sustainable Progress of Sathapana Bank

Phnom Penh, 07 Oct 2020 – The 25 years of operations in Cambodia, Sathapana Bank has assisted Cambodians nationwide to achieve their financial goals through loans, deposit accounts, and financial advice and has enormously contributed to the country’s economy.

Sathapana Bank is a subsidiary of Maruhan Corporation of Japan, which merged with Maruhan Japan Bank in 2016. Since then, Sathapana Bank shifted its entire focus to embrace digital banking technologies with the launch of Sathapana Mobile in 2018, which is one of the most innovative mobile banking apps in Cambodia. In the same year, the bank announced the soft launch of Sathapana Visa Cards and rolled out new Cash Recycling Machines (ATM/Cash In), providing further convenient and better banking experience to customers. 

In 2019, Sathapana Bank introduced Sathapana Visa Debit and Credit Cards and launched Phnom Penh Water Supply Bill Payment as well as inaugurated 3 new branches and upgraded 5 branches to provide full banking services.

Mr. Lim Aun, Chief Executive Officer of Sathapana Bank, said, “On behalf of Sathapana Bank, I would like to extend my tremendous gratitude to all stakeholders who have firmly stood by the bank’s side and significantly contributed to the bank’s successful journey. Without their support, Sathapana Bank wouldn’t have been at today’s highest point offering excellent financial services to Cambodians.”  

“As of today, the bank’s total assets and deposits have crossed US$1.8 billion and US$1.1 billion respectively. 170+ branches are operating nationwide and 4,000+ staff are working to support the bank’s daily operations,” - he added.
