Financial Inclusion

Financial inclusion is a key enabler in DBS’ promotion of sustainable development. Individuals and entities with access to relevant and affordable financial services are much better placed to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Retail Products and Services

Through innovation and digital technologies, we constantly explore ways to increase access to financial services, especially to traditionally under-served populations. In Singapore, living our heritage as the “People’s Bank”, we continue to provide affordable banking services. We offer subsidised banking services to a large segment of customers, and we believe in empowering the community to make sound financial decisions to improve their lives by enhancing their financial literacy.
