Global Banking provides a wide range of financing, investment and capital market solutions to corporate and institutional clients in over 20 markets globally. Our client centric business is anchored on a Client Coverage team supported by 5 key product groups: Investment Banking, Global Markets, Corporate Banking, Transaction Banking and Asset Management.

In 2012, we became the first regional bank to have physical presence in all ten ASEAN member nations and welcomed a new addition to the Global Banking (GB) family, Maybank Asset Management Group, which focuses on growing our asset and fund management business across the region.

Our commitment to building long term, trusted and sustainable relationships with our client is integral part of our relationship approach. We combine this with our local market insights and regional capabilities to support the business needs across our geographic footprint. In the coming years we will focus on maintaining our momentum to better serve our clients and further strengthen our position as a leading regional bank in Asia. GB now has complete suite of product capabilities that will give us the flexibility to provide holistic solutions to our corporate clients regionally.

Maybank Global Banking

Since the restructuring of our global banking business in 2011, Maybank Global Banking has enjoyed great success in offering effective global solutions, both locally and regionally. We're rapidly growing across the globe and having our presence felt in key financial capitals such as Hong Kong, London and New York.

Some of our key achievements in 2014:

  • Improved our coverage model to drive consistent focus on deepening client relationships. Stepped up our client engagement to international thought leadership seminars and strategies dialogues.
  • Ramped up our Equity Capital Markets (ECM) and Debt Capital Markets (DCM) capabilities. Registered favourable operating income and improved our ASEAN league table position, notwithstanding the difficult economic environment and slowdown in capital market activities. 
  • Continued to enhance our regional Transaction Banking platforms – established a strategic alliance with Dagang NeXchange Bhd (DNeX) to offer a comprehensive suite of online trade and supply chain products to Malaysian SMEs.
  • Strengthened our Renminbi (RMB) market maker capabilities – maintained our position as the leading market maker of RMB against Malaysian Ringgit and obtained People’s Bank of China’s appointment as an official market maker of RMB against Singapore Dollar.
  • Expanded our regional Asset Management business by launching new funds, with the more prominent ones being Maybank Constant Income Fund 1 and Maybank Global Sukuk Fund. Established strategic partnerships with distribution partners (iFast, Philip Mutual and Standard Financial) and Hong Kong based Bosera Asset Management Int. Co. Ltd to jointly develop Shariah compliant funds.
