Three years ago, Union Bank of the Philippines reached the unprecedented decision to transform itself to be “digital to the core”. Most every bank is introducing digital innovations, but UnionBank’s all-out approach to digital transformation is setting an example that other banks will choose to follow. Throughout its onward march of progress, UnionBank has remained committed to its customers and staff, ensuring that not one of them is left behind.
