List of Major Banks in Singapore

Singapore, at the heart of its success, is a strategic location coupled with a favorable regulatory environment, making it an essential actor on the global financial stage. The nation's banks drive the international markets, supporting global trade and economic activities.

Ensuring the vitality and reliability of this financial powerhouse is the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), which provides a steadfast regulatory framework. This stringent system fortifies the sector's stability and integrity, underscoring Singapore's esteemed reputation as a secure and trustworthy financial hub.

In Singapore, banks’ licenses are categorized mainly based on the scope of their operations and the services they offer. These categories are defined and regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the country’s central bank and financial regulatory authority.
