Safely ahead with VP Bank’s new e-banking: Online banking transactions made easy

In May 2018, VP Bank has launched an updated e-banking system. The new VP Bank e-banking features a user-friendly design while meeting the most stringent of security requirements.

As a competitive advantage, digitalisation and client experience is prevalent in modern private banking. By integrating e-banking into its client portal in May 2018, VP Bank has achieved a further important milestone in the VP Bank Group’s digitalisation strategy.

“The new VP Bank e-banking is clearly laid out in a simple structure," explains Kimmis Pun, Head of Private Banking at VP Bank (Singapore) Ltd. “Our clients will now be able to carry out their banking transactions easily online – the new system is user friendly, interactive and allows online trading in real time.”

It enables trading-oriented clients to have a gateway to global stock market trading. A large amount of current stock market data from different markets is clearly represented in the form of graphics and charts. Using the new e-banking portal or mobile app of VP Bank, trading has become much more comfortable.

Modern interfaces for corporate clients and intermediaries

The new VP Bank e-banking also offers a professional solution for establishing a direct link to corporate client software. In the future, corporate clients will be able to carry out their global payment transactions conveniently, easily, and complying with the most rigid security standards. “Third-party asset managers can now submit stock exchange orders straight to VP Bank via an automatic interface,” Sylvain Gysler, Head of Intermediaries at VP Bank (Singapore) Ltd, explains.

ProLink, the information platform for intermediaries, is directly integrated into the portal, so that clients can access all relevant information with the same login details.

Desktop and mobile options

They simply may take their mobile phone and use the VP Bank app to trade. The app can be downloaded for Apple devices in the App Store or for Android devices in the Google Play Store by entering the search term “VP Bank”.
