Congratulations to NANOFILM TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL LIMITED on their very successful listing on the SGX mainboard today! We are proud to be the joint global coordinators and bookrunners for this IPO. What makes this IPO even more meaningful to us is the long relationship that we have had with Nanofilm, which began in the late 90s when they opened their first business account with us at our NTU branch.
Congratulations to OCBC INSEAD Executive Development Programme Graduates! As part of our commitment to professional development and investment in our employees, we created this unique programme in partnership with INSEAD Business School to develop our leaders from across businesses, functions, and borders. The capstone for our participants was the delivery of their Action Learning Project Group Presentations to our Chairman, Group CEO, Senior Management, Project Sponsors, Regional HR leads and Talent Management Partners. Despite the challenges, they demonstrated resilience and commitment and delivered impactful presentations with confidence and veracity. We wish them all the best and look forward to their continued growth and leadership journey with OCBC.
At OCBC Bank, the welfare and resilience of our workforce have always been at the forefront of our minds. We advocate the importance of a balanced lifestyle so that our employees are mindful of, and equipped to look after their physical, mental and emotional health. This year, we connected with colleagues across 17 countries in the OCBC Group in a 3D first-person view, virtual platform to learn about resilience from para athletes and a panel of mental wellness experts, know how to take care of themselves from an infectious disease expert, manage stress through TCM acupressure, work out at our work desks (whether at home or in the office!), tune in to music to reconnect with our inner world, cook healthy meals, have 1:1 sessions with counsellors, TCM practitioners and an art therapist! Check out how our colleagues enjoyed themselves in the virtual fiesta! #WeSeeYou

Last month, the Singapore Police Force’s Commercial Affairs Department conferred 14 Community Partnership Awards to OCBC employees for their efforts in combating scams and preventing customers from falling prey to scams. In one incident, our employees prevented a customer from losing $190,000 to a tech support scam, where scammers remotely accessed the customer’s laptop to make funds transfers to an overseas bank account. The top 10 scams in Singapore include investment, e-commerce, social media, loan and Internet love scams. The Police received at least 7,253 scam reports in the first half of 2020, 140% higher than the same period last year. According to the Police, this has resulted in victims losing $82 million to scammers. Training for our frontline colleagues in identifying potential scams and suspicious customer behaviour has been stepped up. Over the past 2 years, our OCBC colleagues have helped customers to prevent 212 scam incidents and more than $26 million from being lost to scammers!
