Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp. Ltd.

Company Background

Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp. (OCBC) was established through a consolidation of Chinese Commercial Bank, Ho Hong Bank and Oversea-Chinese Bank, in 1932. The current largest shareholder is Lee Foundation, a charitable organization in Singapore formed by Lee Kong Chian, one of the three leaders of OCBC at the time of establishment. Lee Foundation owns around 20%. Current CEO Samuel N. Tsien was appointed in April 2012. Tsien was president and CEO of the Asian arm of Bank of America prior to joining OCBC in 2007 as senior executive vice president. He assumed the title of global head of Global Corporate Bank in 2008.

OCBC has been actively seeking to expand its business beyond corporate and commercial banking through mergers and acquisitions. The bank completed its acquisition of ING Asia Private Bank in 2010 to boost its wealth management business. Renamed as Bank of Singapore, it now operates as the private banking arm. OCBC also increased its stake in insurance company Great Eastern Holdings to around 87% in 2008. The acquisition of Hong Kong's Wing Hang Bank in 2014 is part of plans to accelerate business expansion in greater China.
