In a first, HDFC Bank, MasterCard launch Millennia cards aimed at 'Young India'
This is HDFC Bank's first major foray into the millennial segment that caters exclusively to the lifestyles and aspirations of its young customers.
HDFC Bank, MasterCard have launched Millennia Cards. This is India’s first range of cards catering exclusively to the lifestyles and aspirations of the millennials. The cards come loaded with benefits and rewards specifically for the digital-first generation. At 440 million, millennials account for 34 per cent of India’s population. Millennials in India have a different approach to life. They are shaped by technology and not in a hurry to achieve traditional milestones. They are equally focused on leisure and also value new experiences. Entertainment including dining out, travel, apparel, and lifestyle purchases are high on their list of priorities. Thus, their banking needs are also unique.
Speaking on the Millenia Card launch Parag Rao, Country Head, Card Payment Products, Merchant Acquiring Services and Marketing, HDFC Bank said, “We are extremely excited about the journey that we are embarking upon. Millennials are the future of our country and present a huge opportunity for us. I am very confident that this unique range of cards will not only complement their distinctive lifestyle but also allow us to meet their evolving needs,” adding “The Millennia range of cards will allow this generation to do more today, without compromising on other aspects of their life.”
