Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited, abbreviated as OCBC Bank, is a publicly noted monetary services organisation with its head workplace in Singapore. The “Oversea-Chinese” use leads lots of to think erroneously that the bank’s name is misspelled, but this is the correct standard spelling. It is asserted that this is the proper spelling, “oversea” rather than “overseas”, which is the right use of the word in generic English, sounds uneasy and clumsy to native English speakers. The bank’s global network has grown to comprise subsidiaries, branches, and representative workplaces in 18 areas and nations. It has retail banking subsidiaries in Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, and China, and branches in China, Hong Kong, Japan, Australia, the UK and US. OCBC’s Indonesia subsidiary, Bank OCBC NISP, has 630 branches and workplaces.

In 1932, three banks– Chinese Commercial Bank (1912), Ho Hong Bank (1917), and Oversea-Chinese Bank (1919), combined to form Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation under the leadership of Tan Ean Kiam and Lee Kong Chian. In the subsequent decades, the bank broadened its operations and became the largest bank in South East Asia.
