The bank also carries on extensive operations in securities (especially government securities), accepts small savings accounts, and grants consumer loans. During the 1960’s the bank’s volume of foreign trade and currency transactions grew rapidly. It has an extensive network of 172 branches in the country. The Manufacturer’s Hanover Trust Company has foreign branches in London, Frankfurt am Main, Nassau, Tokyo, Zurich, and Bucharest, as well as representatives in Paris, Rome, Madrid, Beirut, Manila, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Sydney, and Nairobi and in the capitals of numerous countries in Central and South America.
