Hana Financial Group (Chairman Kim Jung-tai) announced that it has opened the International Private Banking Center (IPC) focusing on Chinese customers in Yeoksam-dong, southern Seoul. It is the first bank in the nation to do so.
The IPC offers a full line of personal and business banking products and services at home and abroad, combining the networks of Hana Bank’s private banking (PB) centers, Korea Exchange Bank’s Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) Centers, Hana Daetoo Securities’ Investment Bank (IB), and its China Corporation Limited.
If you are a Chinese customer visiting the IPC, you will be provided materials on products written in Chinese and consultation with private bankers who can speak Chinese.
The group plans to attract funds from Chinese customers by providing not only asset management services through the investment in real estate, stock, funds, and bonds, but also information services about domestic companies’ sales, investment, tax, and law.
It will also provide tourism services and information about cultural events. In opening the IPC, the Hana Financial Group put efforts into securing the most professional workforce. In fact, its employees working at the IPC are Chinese experts who have years of work experience in its local subsidiary in China and business finance sector after taking MBA courses in China.
Starting with the first IPC in southern Seoul, the Hana Financial Group plans to open other centers in Jeju Island, Busan, Incheon, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, New York, and Canada, completing its global network within this year.
