Consultancy Services

INTRODUCTION:

Canara Bank has been in the forefront in extending various need based ancillary services to customers. One such specialised service is the Executor, Trustee, Taxation and Attorneyship services that the Bank has been offering for more than three decades now.

A later unique addition to our services to the Corporate Sector is the Debenture Trustee services and Security Trustee services.

These services are unique in nature and are not available at several other banks.
These services are aimed at caring for the personal needs of the customer and enhancing customer satisfaction. For example, drawing up a Will and acting as executor of the Will for a customer, which is crucial to a person's wealth and assets, gives him a great relief and confidence.

Our other services referred above are also of great value.
