Becoming one of the most robust banking groups in the world didn’t just happen by accident. It’s the result of the efforts of our people – more than 189,000 of them – and our global footprint. But it’s also because we are passionate about ensuring that our business is as diverse as possible. We provide an expansive range of services for our customers within:

  • Corporate & Institutional Banking
  • Retail Banking & Services

This scope is why we were profitable during the global financial crisis. As of June 2014, our core capital was 10% above Basel 3 framework (9.0%). And we are one of the few banks in the world to have achieved this 6 years ahead of schedule. This strength is underpinned by our impressive liquidity position. We also have a rigorous and effective risk management policy and proud to be awarded 2016 World’s Best Bank by Euromoney. Therefore, we are well positioned to continue this story of growth in Asia Pacific.

 

A Long-term Commitment To Asia Pacific

We have three main centres in Asia Pacific – Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo. Our diverse workforce makes us a truly multinational entity and this is why we’re one of the best positioned banks in the region.

Moreover, we have ambitions to build on our heritage and enlarge our footprint further in the region. We plan to increase our revenue in Asia Pacific from EUR2 billion in 2012 to EUR3 billion by 2016, giving a compounded interest growth of 12%. But in order to do this, we need talented people who want to grow with us; starting now, and into the future.

 

A Responsible Bank

Banking isn’t just about providing services, it’s about being accountable, too. There are four principles that we live by:

  • Economic Responsibility – Financing the economy ethically
  • Employer Responsibility – Being a fair employer
  • Civic Responsibility – Preventing exclusion, promoting education and culture
  • Environmental Responsibility – Combating climate change
