OFF-SHORE BANKING UNIT
We have come a long way since we launched our Off-shore Banking operations in Dhaka Export Processing Zone six years ago. We are one of the pioneers among local banks in Bangladesh to set up an Off-shore Banking Unit, which went operation in the year of 2006 in Dhaka Export Processing Zone. As a second generation private commercial Bank, Dhaka Bank’s Off-shore Banking Unit has earned enormous confidence of the foreign investors due to its strong commitment and dedication over the years. Currently, the bank has been providing offshore banking services to several Type-A industrial units of the EPZs through its two OBUs in Dhaka and Chittagong Export Process Zone. We, in the Off-shore Banking unit, pride ourselves in our ability to provide premier Off-shore Trade solutions to our clients, while ensuring that highest levels of professionalism are practiced by our colleagues.
Though the country’s offshore banking market is dominated by the foreign banks, Dhaka Bank has been able to make its presence felt by attracting a good number of customers in a short period of time through effective marketing and competitive pricing of its offshore banking products and ensuring highest levels of professionalism and excellent customer services backed by quality human and technological supports. OBU invested around USD 19 million in offshore market to support Type-A industries as well as to strengthen its asset portfolios. Portfolio of the unit during December, 2013 is shown in the following info graph:
