Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited, abbreviated as OCBC Bank, is an openly noted financial services organisation with its head office in Singapore. The “Oversea-Chinese” usage leads lots of to think mistakenly that the bank’s name is misspelled, however this is the right traditional spelling. It is asserted that this is the correct spelling, “oversea” rather than “overseas”, which is the proper use of the word in generic English, sounds awkward and uncomfortable to native English speakers. The bank’s global network has actually grown to make up subsidiaries, branches, and representative offices in 18 nations and territories. It has retail banking subsidiaries in Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, and China, and branches in China, Hong Kong, Japan, Australia, the UK and United States. OCBC’s Indonesia subsidiary, Bank OCBC NISP, has 630 workplaces and branches

In 1932, 3 banks– Chinese Commercial Bank (1912), Ho Hong Bank (1917), and Oversea-Chinese Bank (1919), merged to form Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation under the management of Tan Ean Kiam and Lee Kong Chian. In the subsequent years, the bank expanded its operations and ended up being the biggest bank in South East Asia.
