About the Bank

Banking Secrecy and Tax Treaties

Government of Singapore cannot gather information on foreigners' bank accounts, bank-deposit interest and investment gains under domestic tax law. Therefore, the government is not able to provide any bank information to overseas authorities. Moreover, Singapore doesn't tax capital-gains and bank account interest.

Bank secrecy is a matter of national interest for Singapore, as one of the largest offshore financial centers. Anyone who expects to get information about a foreigner with a bank account here will be disappointed. Singapore stands set to defend bank secrecy now and in the future.

This policy attracts investors from around the world. Financial institutions in Singapore manage at least USD300 billion of foreign investments. According to estimations of wealth managers and private bankers this amount is expected to double in the next five years.

Feedback of Our Clients

Our company introduces its clients to the bank and constantly monitors clients experience with the bank's services.

The bank's new client acceptance rate is around 85%. About 15% of applications are declined due to inability clients to provide required personal documents or describe and confirm their business activities.

Our clients, who use this bank have extremely high level of satisfaction with the bank's services, when accounts are opened. However, clients are not happy with the bank account opening procedure. The bank is quite slow in processing of account applications.

Our company recommends this bank, if you have business interests, customers, and/or suppliers in South Asia and have sufficient time to wait a decision of the bank on your application.
