New CEO Leads BDO Forward
March 1, 2017
BDO Unibank and its stylised ship logo are approaching their fifth decade in business. But new chief executive officer Hubert Esperon has his eyes fixed firmly on the horizon, not the past course of the financial institution. In an interview with the The Bottom Line, Mr. Esperon did not rule out a retail banking presence on the island, to go along with its new, higher-profile offices on Hamilton's Bermudiana Road and a new focus on diversifying its business.
Thailand Report- Captive Review 2015
June 11, 2015
"Doing the Simple Things Well" Q&A with CEO Peter Horton
BDO Unibank CEO, Peter Horton, outlines BDO's plans to launch a captive banking platform.
Captive Review (CR): What should a captive owner look for in a banking partner and what makes BDO stand out in this regard?
Peter Horton (PH): To us the most essential feature of a good banking partner is the business relationship between the banker and its clientele. It’s about having a detailed understanding of each other’s needs and using that knowledge to work together effectively to look after the captive. We are investing signiﬁcantly in building a strong relationship-focused offering, which demands the right people with the right training to create the right product.
Strong relationships and exemplary service are our top priority. Next is an emphasis on ease of transaction. Relatively basic issues, such as opening a bank account in a timely manner, are often overlooked.
It is important to emphasise BDO’s commitment to the captive sector. We have found that certain business sectors are not receiving the committed relationship they require from banks globally. We at BDO, on the other hand, are determined to develop and introduce a strong proposition to the captive space in Thailand .
