About UOB Kay Hian

UOB Kay Hian is a regional broking and corporate finance services Group headquartered in Singapore. We are a widely recognised brand in every country we have operations, a reputation built on our responsive and discreet service. In Singapore we are the largest domestic broker based on the number of registered trading representatives enrolled in our institutional and retail sales force. In addition to our broking agency services, we provide high value added services in corporate fund raising by deploying our wide and deep distribution capabilities to IPOs, secondary placements and other corporate finance and investment banking activities.

Through a series of acquisitions since 2001, in addition to Singapore our regional distribution footprint now spans regional financial centres such as Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, London, New York and Toronto. In addition we maintain a research office in Shanghai and an execution presence in the Philippines. We are therefore at the pulse of regional economic activities availing us the deep market knowledge necessary to respond appropriately to our clients.

Group wide we employ approximately 2,575 professional and support staff globally. Our staff enrolment includes 1,656 sales traders and agents, 81 research analysts and 838 management, credit and back-office support staff.

We have achieved considerable scale and operational leverage from our synergistic acquisitions since 2001. We believe that our non-discretionary and fixed operating costs as a percentage of our revenue are the lowest amongst the brokerages in Singapore. Our efficient cost structure provides a defensive business model that helps us better weather the volatile trading conditions which have resulted from the ongoing uncertainties affecting global financial markets.

The demand by our institutional and accredited investor clients for incisive and timely equity research and ideas is made more urgent due to rapidly changing global conditions. We therefore continue to invest heavily in our regional institutional sales and research resources, and in expanding our regional network.

Our strong cash position will allow us to benefit from business and corporate finance opportunities brought about by increasingly difficult credit conditions.
