OCBC Singapore Introduced Multi-Currency Account For Business

Founded in 1932, OCBC Bank is Singapore’s longest-established bank and the Southeast Asia’s second-largest financial services group in terms of assets. It was awarded the World's Best Bank (Asia-Pacific) in 2019 by Global Finance Magazine. Currently, OCBC’s global network has extensively grown to more than 540 branches and representative offices over 19 countries and regions.

OCBC Bank and BBCIncorp Limited have entered into a long-term partnership for more than 7 years and proven fruitful results in supporting financial services for businesses of all scopes. Especially, we have significantly contributed to thousands of successful cases of opening bank accounts in Singapore for both local and foreign enterprises. In 2019, BBCIncorp Limited was awarded “OCBC Valued Partner Award 2018/2019” for the 4th consecutive year of our partnering relationship.
