OCBC’s private banking unit, Bank of Singapore, is set to enroll its bankers in a new training and development programme.

Bank of Singapore has partnered with the Wealth Management Institute (WMI) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) to launch a new training and development programme, Advanced Diploma in Private Banking Programme, for its private bankers.

The initiative will mark the first time that NTU, ranked 1st in the world among universities that have been in existence for less than 50 years, is collaborating with a financial institution to award an advanced diploma in the field of private banking.

Full Spectrum of Standards

This programme will be accredited by the Institute of Banking and Finance Singapore (IBF) as an IBF Standards Level 2/3 Programme in private banking – the highest level of accreditation by IBF.

With this new Advanced Diploma Programme, Bank of Singapore will rank among the few private banks based in Singapore to offer its bankers a holistic suite of training programmes that all meet the full spectrum of the IBF Standards (Level 1 to 3).  

Investing in its People

The launch of this new Advanced Diploma Programme is in line with Bank of Singapore’s focus on investing in its People as it expands its business amidst the changing landscape. The Programme is designed to equip Bank of Singapore private bankers not only with in-depth knowledge but hands-on experience across the various aspects of wealth management such as investment advisory, risk management and relationship building.

The inaugural group of Bank of Singapore private bankers will commence their programme at the end of June and graduate in November 2016.
