ING Global Bank of the Year 2016 (The Banker)
ING Wholesale Banking in

Hong Kong

Hong Kong is one of the world's leading financial centres. It has a service-oriented economy, with services accounting for over 90% of its GDP. It is characterised by low taxation, near-free port trade and a well-established international financial market. It maintains a reputation of being one of the world’s freest economies, based on its ease on business, trade, investment, finance, property rights and labour. Even though Hong Kong trades with the whole of the world, mainland China has long been Hong Kong's primary trading partner, accounting for about half of Hong Kong's exports’ value.

In 1984, ING Wholesale Banking (WB) extended their network to Hong Kong by opening its first branch there. Currently, it is a fully licensed bank under the Banking Ordinance of Hong Kong and employs over 100 financial experts. Our client portfolio includes top blue-chip corporations, as well as state-owned enterprises, banks and non-bank financial institutions. We efficiently serve clients through the Greater China integrated platform, offering a full range of products and services, including general lending, financial markets, debt capital markets, mergers and acquisitions advisory, structured finance, commodity finance, transportation finance, TMT and syndicated loans (the latter of which ING Bank Hong Kong has a leading market position). For our European clients in Hong Kong, we also run an International Business Client Desk. Cash management services are offered via Bank Mendes Gans in the Netherlands.

With our long-term vision and proactive approach, we supply tailored solutions from our wide range of financial products. Our financial experts will take the time to analyse your business ensuring our solutions suit the way your company operates.
