Financial Advisory Service
The Bank assists clients through an extensive range of assignments that respond to their value creation process by leveraging on our extended network reach, experience, and expertise.
As financial advisor, we take into consideration the nature of the transactions, the underlying conduct of the business, the transaction structures, as well as the merit of the transactions. We also take into account significant negative and positive impacts of the potential investment banking transaction on Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) issues.
In addition to our usual due diligence process that includes lists of clients/know your customer (KYC), we include questions related to ESG policies into our process. In the usual course of due diligence, we evaluate and assess the business in the management interview, focusing on the business operations and outlook. Since we are aware of the importance of ESG risks and impacts, we also incorporate ESG-related issues into our due diligence process. When providing our service, we seek opportunities to engage with clients on ESG-related issues to better understand about and advise on the clients’ ESG risks and opportunities.
