    DBS Personal Loan

    The incorporation of The Development Bank of Singapore Limited, eventually known as DBS to account for its graduation from being just a region-centric bank, took place in the year 1968 by Economic Development Board of the country. The motive of this establishment was to assist the financing of industrial, processing and manufacturing units, as well as to offer financial help in the setting up of newer industries, thus helping boost the industrial economy of Singapore. The bank also played a crucial role in attracting foreign investments in the industrial sector, which served to strengthen the industrial economy of the country further.

    Today, DBS boasts of a market-dominant position in the South East Asian banking hemisphere as the largest bank in the region in terms of its assets and one of the major banks in Asia. It is the largest bank in Singapore with more than 2300 branches and self-serving machines. DBS is also known as the market leader in consumer and corporate banking with its admirable share of retail customers ranging to more than 4.6 million, and its history of having served several generations of customers with varying needs deems it as ‘Asia’s Safest, Asia’s Best’.
