First Caribbean International Bank is two weeks away from closing operations in Belize after several decades dating back to its days as Barclays Bank. The Bank sold its assets to Heritage Bank subject to approval by the Central Bank, which it received on December 21, 2015 and said at the time that the completion of the transition to Heritage Bank is due by January 31st, 2016. However, branches in Dangriga and at the San Cas Plaza will be closed. Today Stephen Duncan, Managing Director of Heritage Bank, told us that the transition is well underway. Duncan also noted that they are making arrangements to use the remaining properties they purchased, which will see Heritage Bank join its banking rivals in the center of the Old Capital. The former Alliance Bank already has established locations across the country from Corozal to Independence.
