Get up-to-date announcements and information from us on Hong Leong Bank’s Covid-19 Financial Relief Schemes/Moratorium.
While we have seen early positive signs in controlling the spread of Covid-19 in Malaysia through the Movement Control Order (MCO), uncertainty is still in the air and this will have an impact on our socio-economic activities for some time to come.
To help our customers during these difficult times, we have introduced loan deferment and financial relief programs best suited to meet your financial needs and payments/repayments cash flow circumstances.
We are extending our hands of continued partnership and support to you during and after the 6-month Loan Deferment Program, helping you to bounce back faster and stronger.
Please stay safe.

Important Updates on Hire Purchase/Hire Purchase-i

Beware of Covid-19 Scams
We urge you to be extra cautious and vigilant at all times, especially with the Covid-19 SCAMS that have been going around on chats, social media, email and Covid-19 related websites, offering safety advice and real-time case update.
These sites are being used to host phishing attacks, distribute malwares or tricking customers to pay for fake Covid-19 cures, supplements, vaccines as well as providing personal and banking information purportedly from various government agencies.
Do not share your personal and bank account details, including credit and debit cards’ information at all times.
We will continue to step up our precautionary measures in protecting the safety and wellbeing of our customers and employees at all our branches and buildings:
- Daily hourly sanitization and cleaning at all customers/visitors touch-points, including common areas and Self-Service Terminals (during operation hours).
- Provide hand sanitizers to customers and visitors.
Public health safety is a collection effort. If you have fever, cough and shortness of breath, please defer your visit to the branches.
Be Safe. Prevention starts with each and every one of us.
Thank you for your kind understanding and full cooperation.
On behalf of our customers and employees, we are proud to have contributed to the collective efforts of the Association of Banks Malaysia to raise some much needed funds to help our health professionals and communities impacted by the Covid-19 outbreak.
Hong Leong Bank is pleased to be part of this industry collective effort to assist MERCY Malaysia and hope our efforts will ease the burden of our medical system and front-line health care professionals, who are caring for our communities tirelessly to ensure that all Malaysians can be provided with adequate support during this difficult period.
Please stay safe, Malaysia!
