Our Priorities

Banks have an essential role in a prosperous and healthy society. We believe that by running our operations well, standing by our clients and customers and investing in the communities where we operate, we can be a powerful force for good. Our approach focuses on getting the basics of banking right, making sure that we are financially stable with strong governance and good sources of capital and liquidity, so that we can create value for our shareholders and society over the long run. Over the past decade, we have continuously delivered for our clients and customers, shareholders and communities.

Contributing to Sustainable Economic Growth

By providing finance responsibly and extending access to finance, we're contributing to sustainable economic growth.

Through sustainable finance, we work with our clients to ensure the projects we finance meet international environmental and social standards. We also focus on improving access to finance for our customers, clients and those that have limited access to a bank or are severely underserved by financial institutions.
