CIMB Group Profile

CIMB Group is Malaysia’s second largest financial services provider which is listed on Bursa Malaysia through Bumiputra-Commerce Holdings Berhad (BCHB).

In 2004, we began the process of creating a strong and competitive universal bank anchored by Commerce International Merchant Bankers (CIMB), the region’s largest investment bank. Leveraging on our brand and management, we undertook 4 strategic acquisitions worth RM12.8billlion:

CIMB-Principal in October 2004 to enter fund management,
CIMB-GK in January 2005 to make headway in the regional capital market,
Bumiputra-Commerce Bank in June 2005 to enter consumer banking and enlarge our balance sheet, and
Southern Bank in March 2006 to strengthen our consumer banking capabilities.

We have also recently announced an internal reorganisation of BCHB to consolidate BCHB’s insurance and Indonesian banking operations into CIMB Group.

In just 2 years, CIMB transformed itself from Malaysia’s no. 1 investment bank into a regional universal banking group. CIMB Group has grown from a staff strength of 1,000 in Malaysia to 20,000 in 12 countries while our market capitalisation has increased from RM6.3 billion to RM19.5 billion. The Group’s total assets grew from RM14.7 billion to RM155 billion with a further RM18 billion being third party funds under management.

We believe that customers want comprehensive and seamless service which meets the entire spectrum of their financial needs. Hence CIMB Group now has a full range of financial products and services, both conventional and Islamic, enabling us to serve everyone. Our customers come from all walks of life in Malaysia as well as throughout the region - large regional corporations, domestic listed companies, entrepreneurial start-ups, high-net worth individuals, pensioners and children.

We connect to our customers through 3 brand entities - CIMB (investment bank), CIMB Bank (consumer bank) and CIMB Islamic (which operates as comprehensive parallel bank within the Group). Our new tagline “Forward Banking” conveys the business philosophy and brand promise of our new universal bank to create value for our customers through forward thinking.

Our vision is to be “Southeast Asia’s most valued universal bank”. That means that

to customers, we want to be your bank of choice,
to employees, we want to be your preferred employer, and
to shareholders, we want to be the bank that you accord the highest premium.

We are proud to say that all of you can “Bank on us to see beyond”.
