SBM Bank India has teamed up with Mastercard to roll out a premium and exclusive debit card tailored to the needs of wealthy customers.
Dubbed SBM World Debit Card, the custom-built card offers access to wealth and banking solutions to help cardholders boost their investment portfolios.
The new card is available to the bank’s private wealth customers, and it represents a combination of niche banking solutions and lifestyle privileges, such as shopping and dining.
The card also comes with fraud detection and decision intelligence features for ensuring security.
The SBM World Debit Card is an all-in-one international travel card as it offers zero cross-currency mark up on international transactions.
SBM Bank India head of retail & consumer banking Neeraj Sinha said: “We are focused on extending best-in-class products and power-packed banking solutions accentuated with the finest benefits, to our SBM Private Wealth Clients.”

“Earlier this year, SBM Bank and Mastercard revolutionized domestic payments and remittances by enabling customers to make real-time business-to-consumer transfers quickly and efficiently through Mastercard Send.
“Mastercard and SBM Bank look forward to setting the new standards for lifestyle experiences.”
The privileges of the new debit card include over 1,000 global hotel and travel privileges around the world and more.
