Speaking on the occasion, Mahabaleshwara M S, MD and CEO of the bank, said, “Customers’ needs are changing on day-to-day basis and it is necessary to every service unit to stand up to the expectations of its customers and work towards customer delight. The bank is firmly moving in this direction and with the MoU with LIC, the bank will be able to provide vast choice of life insurance products to its customers across all its 769 branches, supported by the popular customer-centric products of LIC.

LIC and Karnataka Bank are two great household names and both are time-tested entities. Let us work together in delivering the quality products to our customers and, thus, maximise value addition to all our customers.

Let us together dedicate ourselves to cover the life of the Insured and their family members.”
LIC executive director Rakesh Kumar said, “The partnership is an important part of our growth strategy which requires a robust distribution network and this will be possible as Karnataka Bank is having its existence at every nook and corner of the country.”
