Here are some success stories that show what it means to have the privileged access, custom services and expert advisors of DBS Private Bank:
Having an entire bank behind you
A client had the foresight to take advantage of volatile market conditions to purchase new ships for his company at low prices.
DBS Private Bank activated our Institutional Banking and Equity Capital Markets teams, recommending an equity fundraising via a rights issue.
To further help our client, the major shareholder, come up with a substantial cash outlay to fund his pro rata share of the rights issue in order to avoid dilution, DBS moved swiftly to underwrite a loan to the client on an expedited basis, based on the bank's close relationship with the family.
With our institutional banking team providing a keen understanding of the shipping industry; our equity capital markets team structuring and marketing the rights issue, and the private banking team's deep relationship with the client, DBS worked seamlessly to understand the exacting needs of this client and successfully achieved his plan for growth in under 3 weeks.
Benefiting from a network that spans across Asia
A client wanted to do a share buyback to increase the shareholder value in his company. With operations based in China and his company
listed on NASDAQ, he faced the issue of a currency mismatch.
With our extensive network across Asia, DBS Private Bank connected him to the Institutional Banking team in Hong Kong who structured a USD loan to help him manage his foreign exchange exposure. The client was also able to maintain his company's cash reserves in Renminbi to benefit from the appreciating foreign exchange rate.
Our private and corporate bankers in the region worked in unison to better understand this client's specific needs, helping him achieve his goals.
