Hong Leong Bank, a public listed company on the Malaysian Stock Exchange, is a member of the Hong Leong Group (the Group). Headquartered in Malaysia, the Group has been in the financial services industry since 1968 through Hong Leong Finance Berhad and since 1982 through Dao Heng Bank Ltd in Hong Kong. Dao Heng Bank Ltd has since been sold to another banking institution. Today, the Group comprises a total of 14 listed companies worldwide with a combined market capitalization in excess of USD11 billion.

With more than 100 years of banking knowledge and experience, Hong Leong Bank has a strong market position and well-recognized business franchise. Hong Leong Bank, one of the leading local banks in Malaysia, has won many recognitions and accolades over the years: the Finance Asia 2002 Asia's Best Companies Award, the KPMG 2003 Shareholder Value Award, the CGC Top SMI Supporter Award 2004, the Asian Banker's Best Credit Card Product Award 2006 and the Best E-Banking Project 2007.

Hong Leong Bank Berhad started its humble beginnings in 1905 in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia under the name of Kwong Lee Mortgage & Remittance Company and later in 1934, incorporated as Kwong Lee Bank Limited. In 1989, it was renamed MUI Bank, operating in 35 branches. In January 1994, the Group acquired MUI Bank through Hong Leong Credit Berhad (now known as Hong Leong Financial Group Berhad). This milestone saw the birth of Hong Leong Bank and in the same year in October, Hong Leong Bank was listed on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange.

In 2004, the finance company business of Hong Leong Finance Berhad was acquired by Hong Leong Bank. Today, the enlarged, merged entity has over 185 branches in Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Hong Leong Group (the Group) is one of the largest business groups in Malaysia and internationally. The strong foundation and solid growth of the Group is attributed to the Power of Vision - the Vision of its Executive Chairman, Tan Sri Quek Leng Chan. Today that Vision is manifested and entrenched in the Group's corporate culture, which is firmly rooted on the Group's core values of quality, entrepreneurship, innovation, honour, human resource, unity, progress and social responsibility.

The Group believes in embedding itself in the country and community within which it operates. Through its financial services arm Hong Leong Financial Group Berhad, which comprises Hong Leong Bank, Hong Leong Islamic Bank, Hong Leong Assurance, HLG Capital and Hong Leong Tokio Marine Takaful, the Group is well positioned as an integrated financial services provider.
