Gateway banking

Do you need to expand your network to support your clients? Our Gateway Banking programme makes all the right connections.

Global trends

Corporations that were once focusing only on domestic markets are now going international. Your clients, who once dealt only with suppliers and customers in your network territory, now deal with trading partners in countries around the world, especially in the high-growth, resource-rich zones of Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

Your challenges

As your clients grow their businesses and expand their footprint, they look to you to do the same. With only a domestic or regional presence, how do you carry out the following without being distracted from your domestic capabilities and core competencies?

  • Support your clients in regions where you do not have a network footprint?
  • Broaden and deepen your existing client relationships?
  • Attract new business by participating in global Request for Proposals (RFPs)?
  • Defend your client base from international competitors?

We have the answer

Our Gateway Banking programme gives your network an immediate extension into the most active regions on the global trade map.

With a whole range of corporate and commercial banking capabilities, we aim to complement your relationship with the client. You will have a single point of entry to our product network in Asia, Africa and the Middle East through our team of dedicated coordinators, relationship managers and customer service teams in each country- and all with a one bank view.
