Green Packet intends to position OCIB to aggregate, deploy, and optimise its clients’ funds and digital assets in order for its high profile clients to reap the full benefits of the emerging asset class while managing their risk appetites.

Main focus of the bank is to become a forerunner in Southeast Asia’s offshore neobank scene, specialising in Digital Asset portfolio advisory, management services as well as bespoke structured products and services for High-Net-Worth Individuals (HNWI), Institutions’ and Enterprises.

Tan Kay Yen, Chief Executive Officer of OCIB explains, “Cryptocurrencies and digital assets have seen tremendous growth and adoption over the years and is now benefiting from serious participation from mainstream players such as central banks and established financial institutions. The latest example is Singapore Central Bank’s collaboration with Monetary Authority Singapore (MAS) and Bank of International Settlements (BIS) to streamline cross-border transactions using central bank digital currencies.”

As an offshore investment bank, OCIB will also provide conventional investment banking services such as Private Wealth and Corporate Advisory and solutions in working capital management and underlying trade services to its clients.
