Founded in 1920 by entrepreneurs who understood the value of a peso, the importance of keeping one’s word, and how crucial a bank’s support is for a businessman, China Bank has been on a mission to be a catalyst of wealth creation for its clients—men and women, who, like the founders Dee C. Chuan, Albino Sycip, and the other visionaries of the era, have integrity, business savvy, discipline, humility, and an appetite for hard work. For over nine decades, the Bank carries out the same mission, building strong, lasting, and fruitful banking partnerships from one generation to the next.
Many of China Bank’s biggest clients demonstrate how much hard work can achieve and how big dreams can come true, but China Bank is not just a businessman’s bank. Through the years, it has been the right banking partner to a lot of people—a bank that provides a young professional with savings and investment options, that helps a couple become car owners and home owners, that gives sound financial advice to a retiree, that is an ally to a hard working OFW and his family. China Bank continues to expand its branch network and electronic banking channels, building and sustaining strong relationships with customers by being very accessible and offering banking solutions that are relevant to them and responsive to their needs.
Even as we grow, innovate, and expand, we continue to be guided by the timeless values of our founding fathers—that banking is a relationship anchored on trust, integrity, fairness, and transparency. These core values underpin the strength of our partnerships that span across four generations, and propel our continued efforts to excel in corporate governance and embed global best practices in our corporate culture.
For nearly a century, China Bank has been growing, improving, and evolving, but even with the passing of time and the changes in leadership, the founders’ commitment to clients remain: "Your success is our business."
