In a world where there’s less time and more and more information, a banking app goes beyond being a platform for money transfer and invoice or bill payment. SBI bank introduces high-powered Stories feature, a well-known tool that originates from social networks. As the bank is Japanese, their Stories have an exquisite flavour of Japanese culture which would be a delight to those who admire the country.
Now you don’t need to go the extra mile to take your mind off and learn something new: neatly and concisely presented information saves your time and features financial hacks – Japanese are renowned for their rational approach to financial matters. SBI Stories offer financial behaviour recommendations for adults and children, news about bank products and offers, handy trending tips for Japan lovers, and much more. Here you’ll find ratings of the best Japanese restaurants, the Japanese ink painting Sumie courses, as well as fun facts about the Land of the Rising Sun. When on the app, you can learn how to eat fugu or get to know a new Japanese word. Also Stories can make the selection of the best movies to see and best places to travel to.

Modern fintech solutions assure every customer is addressed with relevant offers that are of maximum interest and usefulness – this is the principle that underpins Stories at SBI bank. A personalised approach forms the basis of every new product and service that are offered as part of Your Circle package with the needs of every family member in mind.Andrey Karmanenko, Retail Director at SBI bank
