Hong Kong Court Rules Against OCBC in Mis-Selling
Hong Kong’s High Court ruled against Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp.’s private bank in a mis-selling case, saying the unit and a relationship manager had breached their contractual duty towards an elderly couple who lost money on investments made with ING Asia Private Bank.
The court said Bank of Singapore and banker Yvetti Chau Kwan-siu had failed “to exercise reasonable care and skill” in assessing the couple’s investment objectives and risk appetite.
