Supporting customers and workforce

Shinhan Finance has launched a nationwide public awareness contest to inform its customers and employees about the importance of social responsibility regarding the government’s call for taking action to save lives during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The campaign aims to speak directly to current customers and employees across the nation about the COVID-19 health crisis in Vietnam, and what they can do to ensure safety for themselves and the community.

Shinhan Finance also encourages customers to do transactions digitally and avoid visiting the branches and service points for 15 days. Information on the customer contest and mechanism is available at www.shinhanfinance.com.vn.

Shinhan Finance has a strong system and the company believes it is well-placed to manage through this challenging time with minimal disruption to its services.
