Cyprus' favorable taxation, sophisticated legal framework and strategic location makes it an attractive investment and living destination for international clients, both individual and corporate. While there are banks focused on domestic market only, several banks offer their products and services to international customers, such services are called international banking or international business banking.
Direct banking is a relatively new way of delivering banking products and services to the customers via direct channels, meaning that a direct bank operates without brick-and-mortar branch network and its services are provided via online banking, mobile banking, ATM networks, and even mail. As direct banks don't have an expensive branch network, the resulting cost savings are passed on to the bank's customers which allows to offer fair conditions in all product areas.
