Touted to be the Asia Pacific's first, the new syariah-compliant business credit card is based on Visa platform.

Cardholders will also enjoy complimentary access to plaza premium lounges at airports in Malaysia and Singapore, free Takaful travel protection coverage up to MYR2m ($485,024), and free Takaful protection up to MYR10,000 ($2,405).

"The business card-i enables business to separate and consolidate business related spending in one card and the detailed monthly statement eases the tracking of these spending.”
