Best Domestic Private Bank – Philippines

Albert S. Yeo


At BDO Private Bank, the commitment to clients has always been of utmost importance, especially in providing timely investment advice.

For instance, prior to the start of 2022, we recommended that clients keep their portfolio in short-duration instruments, in view of the anticipated hike in interest rates caused by rising inflation. With this advice, client portfolios were not greatly marked down. In fact, we increased the total AUM by 4% in 2022 thanks to new contributions.

What was behind the judges’ decision?

  • Despite volatile underlying market conditions, BDO Private Bank registered a commendable growth in trust AUM and revenue during the period under consideration. In the view of the judging panel, that demonstrates BDO Private Bank’s success in maintaining high levels of liquidity to meet clients’ ongoing demand for credit
  • Responding to the increasingly global and diversified business interests and needs of U/HNWIs in the Philippines, BDO Private Bank has ramped up its product suite, offering a wider array of offshore investments, and of both wealth planning and philanthropic solutions
  • The bank articulated a clear roadmap for the development of its capabilities across offshore investments, wealth planning and digital tools for clients. Meanwhile, the lender has meaningfully beefed up client outreach and content across webinars and other key client channels
