Compliance is Cited as Reason to Grow OCBC Private Bank

OCBC CEO Samuel Tsien said that increasing compliance costs is one of the factors to expand the wealth management business. The costs of complying with anti money laundering, tax and other regulatory requirements has risen by 35% annually and this needs to be spread out across fee generating clients.

A larger client base for OCBC would mean the cost can now be amortised over a larger client base.
