Next Friday CIBC FirstCaribbean will throw open the doors of its newest state-of-the-art branch, a stone’s throw from its Headquarters at Warrens in Barbados, to its customers.

Employing 39 staff, the 13,700 square-foot Warrens Banking Centre represents the Bank’s latest investment in its network of branches and Instant teller (ABM) machines across the Caribbean.

Within the last three years, the bank has opened new branches at Orange Walk in Belize, Carmichael Road in the Bahamas, Old Parham Road in Antigua, Sunset Crest and Wildey in Barbados, and Rodney Bay in St. Lucia, and refurbished most of its other branches across its footprint. The bank has also opened an impressive Wealth Management Centre in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

Additionally, CIBC FirstCaribbean has installed eight new ABMs, bringing the number of machines in its network to 142, and has refurbished and upgraded 13 others as part of its “Evergreen” programme, designed to keep pace with technology updates in the financial services industry.

The Warrens Banking Centre, built at a cost of US$5million, will be the bank’s flagship branch. It’s CIBC FirstCaribbean’s first branch in the region to use a new design code, and will bear a striking similarity to the branches of the bank’s parent, CIBC.

The new branch will bring CIBC FirstCaribbean’s network in the Caribbean to 68 branches.
