With a wealth of local knowledge, we’re well-placed to help you capitalise on the growth of Asian economies
Our services in Asia
No two clients are alike. In Asia, our clients’ needs are often made more complex by intertwined wealth management and business objectives.
At Barclays, we know how to balance your needs as an entrepreneur with the personal banking services you require from day to day. Our work with you therefore has three main focuses:
- Wealth investment and growth
- Wealth protection
- Business interests
Your partner in business
We see ourselves as your partner throughout the fiduciary life cycle. As an entrepreneur we help your firm fulfil its potential, from your first financing solutions through your years of building wealth, and on to your succession planning and wealth structuring for future generations. But we’ll also take care of your financial needs as an individual.
Expert personal and private banking
As well as supporting our clients’ businesses, we’re well-placed to understand and address the complex personal banking needs of our high net worth clients in Asia with our extensive range of unique offerings.
Our presence in Asia
We have a presence in the key financial hubs across Asia, with offices in Hong Kong, India, Japan and Singapore.
Clients across Greater China are mainly served by our teams in Hong Kong while clients across South and South-East Asia are served by our teams in Singapore. Singapore has also become an increasingly attractive booking centre for clients across Greater China and our Greater China desk which was set up in Singapore in 2011 has grown significantly since its establishment.
Recognising the importance of India as a growing wealth market, we established an onshore business which became fully operational in 2009. We also serve the wealthy in Japan through our joint venture with Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation and SMBC Nikko Securities Inc. which was launched in July 2010.
Our commitment to Asia
Our commitment to Asia extends beyond wealth management services. We support and sponsor arts and cultural events across Asia as well as help foster entrepreneurship in the region. We are also active in giving back to the communities in which we operate through our Citizenship agenda
