About DBS Taiwan

DBS first established a presence in Taiwan in 1983 and is committed to growing its franchise in Taiwan with a significant presence across business, clients, products and services. In 2008, DBS acquired the “good bank assets” of Bowa Bank, giving it significant inroads into Taiwan. The investment reinforces DBS' Greater China strategy and enhances the bank's position as a leading provider of financial services in Asia and a pioneer in wealth management. The acquisition presents a sizable platform for DBS to grow and extend its footprint in an attractive market.

DBS Bank (Taiwan) Ltd, a subsidiary of DBS Group, commenced business in 2012, underscoring our long term commitment to the Taiwan market. In 2017, DBS Bank (Taiwan) completed acquisition of ANZ's wealth management and retail banking business in Taiwan. DBS Bank (Taiwan) will continue to build on its solid foundation, with localized and personalized services to capture the business opportunities together with our customers in this exciting new era.
