Precautionary measures against the spread of COVID-19

To assist in the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, we have taken a number of precautionary measures, as set out below.

Please only visit our branches for urgent matters. As of the 2 April 2020, branches will be operating under reduced opening hours as follows: Monday to Friday 09:00 – 12 noon.

  • When at any of our branches please follow the directions you find inside and given by our staff.
  • The flow of customers into our branches is being regulated. You may therefore experience longer waiting times.
  • All deposits should be made through ATMs and not at our cash counters.
  • Cash withdrawals should be made through ATMs and not at our cash counters.
  • Our cashiers will only encash Central Bank of Malta cheques and only for Lombard Bank customers.

For further updates, please visit this page periodically.

While apologising for any possible inconvenience the above may cause you, we are confident that you understand that these measures are being taken in the interest of all concerned.

Assistance to borrowing customers

Mindful that this outbreak stands to result in negative consequences on the activities of its business customers, the Bank has allotted €12.5 million, to provide temporary working capital requirements to those business customers facing temporary liquidity shortages.

The fund will be offered on favourable terms, including a fixed debit interest rate of 2.5% per annum for amounts up to €350,000 and for a period up to 18 months.

Each case will be treated on its own merits and subject to the usual lending criteria, while no bank processing fees will be charged.

The creation of this fund is apart from any other measures which the Bank may introduce to its customers as assistance during these extraordinary times.

Those existing Lombard Bank customers who wish to learn more about availing themselves of this fund are to contact their relationship manager.
