Global banks these days are shedding the stuffy corporate image as incumbents and embracing the digital wave. It has become a necessity to win over the hearts and minds of consumers who are constantly glued to their handphones by redesigning the digital experience, or risk getting left behind.

In its efforts to cement itself as an Asian market leader, local bank DBS has since launched a plethora of initiatives in line with their new “Live More, Bank Less” mantra. From implementing technology to making banking effortless with the touch of a phone, kickstarting online communities, organizing offline experiential events, sparking collaborations with cultural mavens and more.
