Highlighting the trends and challenges that ASEAN companies might face, Charles commented: “One of the key trends that banks and financial institutions within the region are seeing is how to not only be a better bank – but the discussion is how they can proactively help their customers to lead a better life.
“And if you look at customers’ responses; they’d say how they want an institution that knows what they want – not just issues on their wealth, but also how to help them become healthier and happier.”
