DBS, a leading financial services group headquartered in Singapore, operates across 18 markets. We are an Asia-centric commercial bank focused on harnessing the region's long-term potential as the centre of economic gravity shifts eastwards to Asia.
A frontrunner in digital transformation, we seek to deliver a new kind of banking that is so simple, seamless and invisible, that customers have more time to spend on the people or things they care about.
At DBS, we are also a strong advocate of building a sustainable future. Working with partners, we empower people to live larger than themselves. We create avenues that encourage our customers to live socially-conscious; establish platforms to help social entrepreneurs bring their ideas to life; and provide the next generation with opportunities to develop innovative solutions that address sustainability issues.
We are distinct from local lenders or global players. As an Asian specialist and a leader in digital transformation, we have the reach and sophistication to outcompete local lenders, and deep Asian insights that distinguish us from global competitors. We seek to intermediate trade and investment flows between Asia's three key axes of growth – Southeast Asia, Greater China and South Asia – as well as participate in Asia's growing affluence. Our key franchises are in Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, India and Indonesia.
In Singapore, we are a universal bank serving all customer segments, including the mass market through the DBS and POSB, also known as the "People's Bank". In our other markets, we focus on three lines of business:
- Corporate banking
- SME banking
- Wealth management
