Bank of Singapore forms global investment advisory council

The Bank of Singapore, OCBC’s private banking arm, has launched an independent investment advisory council composed of global experts from leading think tanks and asset management firms. This initiative, part of a broader strategy to solidify its position as the top private bank in Asia, aims to bolster the bank’s research capabilities and client insights. Jean Chia, the bank’s global chief investment officer, highlighted the importance of integrating external expertise with internal research to enhance competitive advantage in a knowledge-driven economy. The council includes distinguished members from BlackRock, Blackstone, and other major institutions. Additionally, the bank’s chief investment office, enhanced with new technologies since January 2024, now reports directly to the CEO, focusing on sophisticated portfolio analysis and construction.
