BENDURA BANK celebrates the 4th anniversary of its representative office in Hong Kong. The office proves to be a great success and serves as a platform for the future Asian business of BENDURA BANK AG. The event was held on Thursday, 27 October 2022 at 6:30 pm at the Cuisine Cuisine restaurant (IFC Mall) in Hong Kong.  The Bank hosted a cocktail reception attended by nearly 150 clients and business partners. In a cosy atmosphere, the guests were able to exchange ideas and enjoy culinary delicacies.

Philipp Forster, Head of the Hong Kong Representative Office, welcomed the guests and thanked them on behalf of the bank's Management Board for the successful cooperation. Afterwards, Mr. Kwok Lung HON - Chairman of BENDURA BANK's Board of Directors and representing the major shareholder - addressed the guests. In the further course of the evening, Philipp Forster and Dr Markus Federspiel (CEO) reflected on the last 4 years. In the second half of 2018, our representative office in Hong Kong was opened. The premises are located on the 19th floor of the International Commerce Centre (ICC) in West Kowloon. Perfectly embedded in the local infrastructure, the location is easy and straightforward to reach.

In the past four years, the bank's brand positioning in Hong Kong could be strengthened significantly. In addition, the Hong Kong Representative Office enables the bank to identify current trends in Asia more quickly and to pass this information on to the head office in Liechtenstein in real time.
