Branches of Takarékbank to provide car financing services
The car leasing scheme of MKB-Euroleasing Car Leasing Ltd. is available through certain branches of Takarékbank from 26 October, which provides financing for the purchase of cars, motorcycles and light commercial vehicles. The cooperation between the leasing subsidiaries of Hungarian Bankholding enables the retail and corporate customers of all member banks to access car and asset financing products.
From October 26, clients may initially inquire about the product at eleven Takarékbank branches, indicating their needs through branches in Budapest, Debrecen, Veszprém, Zalaegerszeg, Győr, Békéscsaba, Pécs, Székesfehérvár, Tatabánya and Miskolc.
Prior to that, the leasing subsidiaries of the member banks together entered the market in the field of car financing with Széchenyi Leasing GO!, which thus became available in the branches of Takarékbank. The full range of leasing products will gradually become uniform in the offer of the branch network of member banks, available for customers at bank branches under the name Leasing+.
In March 2021, Hungarian Bankholding Ltd. announced its five-year strategy for the merger of Budapest Bank, MKB Bank and the Takarék Group, based on which the fusion of the three credit institutions is planned to be concluded in 2023. This created the second largest banking group in Hungary, which includes four key players in the leasing market: MKB-Euroleasing, Budapest Autó, Budapest Leasing and Takarék Leasing.
"By strengthening the cooperation of leasing subsidiaries, our goal is to together introduce more and more products to the market which can provide one of the most competitive services in all segments. Through our key brand relationships, the nationwide branch network of the member banks of Bankholding, our remarkably extensive partner network and our online calculator, we can efficiently serve customer needs in full range. In addition, we can provide personalized offers and advice to new and existing customers.”
