Metrobank Card Corporation (A FINANCE COMPANY AND GENERAL INSURANCE AGENCY) [MCC] was established in August 1985, known then as Unibancard Corporation. Its maiden product was called Unicard, a single currency credit card accepted in key establishments in the Philippines. Over the years, Unicard evolved from a locally accepted card to an internationally recognized credit card when it rode on the Mastercard scheme in 1994 and the Visa scheme in 1998.
In October 2003, Australia New Zealand Bank (ANZ) entered into a joint venture with Metropolitan Bank and Trust Corporation (MBTC) for the cards operation business of MCC. Since then, MCC has already tripled its cardholder base, and has launched a string of new products that offer distinct advantages to its customers, such as special installment plans, unmatched perks and privileges, and invites to exclusive events.
In October 2015, Metrobank Card Corporation was named winner of the Best Credit Card award in the Philippines for 2015 for its much improved operational efficiencies, better coordination among units and customer centric product offers. The awards program was administered by The Asian Banker and referred by prominent global bankers, senior retail bankers and academics. The Asian Banker is the region’s most authoritative provider of strategic business intelligence to the financial services community.
