The US dollar-denominated product will invest funds from customers in various products of seasoned global financial institutions such as Goldman Sachs to ensure that clients enjoy competitive returns in accordance with the development of global economic conditions. The product also offers protection and assurances of customer assets. Present for the signing of the memorandum of understanding were PT Bank DBS Indonesia Consumer Banking Director Rudy Tandjung and Bahana TCW Investment Management Director Doni Firdaus.

Director of Consumer Banking PT Bank DBS Indonesia Rudy Tandjung said, "As a trusted wealth management partner, DBS Treasures Private Client is committed to providing curated solutions across generations, including by enhancing investment options that are tailored to suit the unique needs of each customer while providing exclusive portfolio management for wealth preservation. We hope that the expanded opportunities to invest on a global scale through PDNI will enable our clients to achieve their financial aspirations so that they can 'Live more, Bank less’."

With a minimum fund placement of Rp5 billion, PDNI offers three benefits, namely exclusivity – the managed portfolio only involves a bilateral contract between the investment manager and the investor; customization – personalized service to suit the needs, preferences, and risk profile of the investor, ensuring that every investment product and advisory offered is aligned with the customer's financial goals; transparency – every transaction, including a visible fee structure, can be monitored regularly, allowing clients to evaluate their portfolio performance and make more informed decisions.

"As an investment manager with more than 28 years of experience, the launch of PDNI has further strengthened our commitment to providing a variety of high-quality and optimally diversified investment solutions," said Bahana TCW Investment Management Director Doni Firdaus. "We are excited to collaborate with DBS Treasures Private Client to bring this service to private banking customers and further strengthen our strategic partnership with Bank DBS Indonesia," he added.

So far this year, Bank DBS Indonesia through the DBS Treasures Private Client’s private banking segment has posted a 37 percent annual growth in total assets under management (AUM).
