Jean Chia (谢佩华), Global Chief Investment Officer (环球首席投资官), Bank of Singapore: “Building intellectual capital is a key part of the bank’s strategy to become the top private bank in Asia. In today’s knowledge-driven economy, we are enhancing our competitive advantage by investing in research capabilities, which includes convening this global advisory council that complements our in-house insights. The council pools together a group with valuable knowledge and deep expertise, strengthening our value proposition of becoming the go-to bank for investment advice and advisory and discretionary portfolio management.” 

 

 

Quality investment and portfolio advisory as a key differentiator 

  • With quality investment and portfolio advisory at the forefront of Bank of Singapore’s corporate strategy, the formation of the CIO Global Advisory Council is one of the latest in a concerted series of moves to differentiate the Bank in this area. 
  • Since January 2024, the Chief Investment Office has been a standalone unit that reports directly to Chief Executive Officer (首席执行官) Jason Moo (巫毅盛). The Chief Investment Office sets the asset allocation framework, investment views and securities research, while the advisory and discretionary portfolio management teams manage the clients’ assets in alignment with their return expectations and risk appetite. 
  • While the CIO Global Advisory Council offers complementary insights, the Bank’s house view – which guides investment decisions – is built upon the Chief Investment Office’s in-house research, investment strategy and asset allocation expertise. 
  • This year, the Chief Investment Office has also implemented a market leading wealth management and investment management technology platform to enhance the client experience through its client portfolio analysis and portfolio construction capabilities, which is already widely used by asset managers and institutional investors. Bank of Singapore is one of the first private banks in Asia to adopt the platform for private banking clients.
