Invest-in-Singapore-Banking-SectorThe Singapore banking sector

During the last few years, Singapore has established itself as a renowned international financial center. Among all the branches of the financial industry, the banking sector has emerged as one of Singapore’s key players for economic growth. Singapore is currently the third largest banking center in Asia hosting over 100 branches of foreign banks and 6 local ones. Among the factors leading to Singapore banking system’s success one can take into account:

  • -          the liberalization of the local banking market which allowed for the establishment of foreign institutions,
  • -          local banks acquiring or merging with larger banking groups,
  • -          the supply of sophisticated and modern banking services,
  • -          the advantageous banking secrecy legislation,
  • -          the banking legislation which provides for a safe environment for conducting financial activities.
