Today, the AmBank Group, through its sports club, Kelab AmBank Group (KAG), welcomed the Year of the Goat by treating its customers and staff to Chinese New Year festive delicacies in the foyer of Bangunan AmBank Group (BAG), Jalan Raja Chulan in Kuala Lumpur. The event was graced by Tan Sri Azman Hashim, Chairman, AmBank Group, Mr Ashok Ramamurthy, Group Managing Director, AmBank Group, Datuk Mohamed Azmi Mahmood, Deputy Group Managing Director, AmBank Group and the Senior Management of AmBank Group. 

With “God of Prosperity” in tow, KAG members distributed ‘kuih kapit’ to the cheerful crowd of AmBank Group customers and employees from 12.00 noon. Outside the entrance, the group already in high spirit was further entertained by a special acrobatic Lion Dance performance on stilts, followed by a more traditional Lion Dance performance on-ground, where the lion presented a tray of fruits to the VIP. The unity with which Malaysians embrace the diversity of culture and variety of customs was apparent from the smiling faces of the recipients who came from all walks of life. 

“We would like to wish all our customers and colleagues a happy and prosperous Chinese New Year. As ‘Your Bank. Malaysia’s Bank. AmBank.’, we are happy to celebrate the festivals of Malaysia together with our customers and colleagues who come from all religions and races,” said Tan Sri Azman. 

Aside from Bangunan AmBank Group, the Chinese New Year treats were also given out across the Group’s buildings, including Bangunan AmBank Group (Jalan Raja Chulan), Menara AmBank (Jalan Yap Kwan Seng), Menara AmMetLife (Jalan Lumut), Menara Kurnia (Petaling Jaya), Tropicana Fairway 3, Menara MBf and Menara Dion (both in Jalan Sultan Ismail) and Wisma AmBank (Jalan Pudu). ​​​​​​​​
