Asia-centric Asset Allocation
As an Asian bank, DBS recognises that some of the most attractive wealth opportunities are to be found in our part of the world. So while we retain a global perspective for wealth opportunities, we center our focus on Asia, putting a bigger part of your portfolio into regional markets.
Strategic partnerships in Asia
DBS has developed strategic partnerships in the region, allowing you to leverage our connections to gain keen insights on the ground and identify key opportunities. We have a 33% stake in Changsheng Fund Management, a joint venture fund management company in China, and a 7.25% stake in Nikko Asset Management, one of the largest asset managers in Asia.
- In 2010, we launched two Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor ('QFII') A-share funds to enable our clients to capture specific growth opportunities in China's economy.
- In 2011, we also partnered with Nikko Asset Management to launch a fund focusing on the beneficiaries of Japan's recovery from the March 2011 earthquake.
First to market on offshore Renminbi products
As a key player in the region, DBS was one of the first in the world to offer a suite of offshore RMB denominated products, including deposits, bonds, arbitrage opportunities, funds and structured notes.
Strong capital markets deal flow
With an established presence in capital markets across the region, we offer access to key equity and debt issuances in the region:
- #1 for SGX equity IPOs and secondary offerings
DBS ranked #1 for all SGX IPO and secondary offering equity listings, with a market share of 25% in 2011. We were also the joint lead underwriter in several key IPOs, including Global Logistic Properties, Mapletree Industrial Trust, and the Hutchison Ports Trust IPO.
- #1 for the SGD denominated bonds issuances
DBS has a market share of 31% in SGD denominated bond issuances in 2011. We have been part of several key financial institutions' bond issuances including Temasek's S$1 billion 40-year bond issue, and Khazanah's S$1.5 billion sukuk issue.
