DBS: The World’s Best Bank (again)...

2019 was a pivotal year for us. We were the first bank to hold three global best bank honours at the same time, and to be recognised among the top 10 business transformations of the decade by Harvard Business Review. The slew of global accolades continue to underscore our growing stature in the world.
We continued to be recognised for our leadership in digital, as well as our commitment to delivering a purpose beyond banking. We also focused on creating a better world through our three sustainability pillars of responsible banking, responsible business practices and creating social impact.

“DBS has made great efforts to modernise itself, and to adopt technology. In the past one year, it was named the best bank in the world by three major industry publications. Most importantly, DBS has been working very hard to retrain its employees. It has shown care and concern for its people, even as it transforms itself. In fact, if they did not share care and concern for its people, it could not have become the best bank in the world. This is the right approach, and I encourage other companies to emulate DBS’ example. Good job lah, DBS!”

Singapore Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Loong

“A world-class bank will undoubtedly be a digital leader. It will invest in technology that makes a real difference to how the bank is run. It will be a bank that plays to its strengths. It will not grow for growth’s sake; it will take a long-term view. It will be a diversified bank, and it will be a bank that takes its role in broader society seriously, putting corporate responsibility at the heart of what it does. The bank in the world today that best matches these criteria is DBS.”
