Siew Meng Tan, Regional Head of HSBC Global Private Banking, Asia-Pacific, said: 

“Client relationships in the wealth management world are traditionally anchored around face to face interactions. While this remains a key part of the overall client experience, clients now see the benefit of innovation in enhancing the wealth management relationship, and would like to have more flexibility in the way they interact with the Bank. This changing need is even more prominent as the world moves into the new normal.” 

 “With clients’ needs at the core of what we do, HSBC Global Private Banking has been investing considerably in our product, distribution and digital capabilities in the last two years to provide our clients with a significantly improved experience. The launch of the HSBC GPB Chat is another step we have taken to improve the client journey as clients’ needs evolve. It also further strengthens our position in the market as we continue to grow our portfolio of digital solutions” Tan continued.

HSBC Global Private Banking expects to invest over USD100 million in the next two years to build and innovate the core banking and digital platforms to meet the fast-changing wealth and lifestyle needs of our clients. In June this year, a new online trading platform was launched which gives customers direct access to cash equities and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) from their mobile phones, at the touch of a button.
