Julius Baer Opens New Singapore Office

Swiss private bank Julius Baer bolsters its commitment and growth in Singapore.

Swiss private bank Julius Baer has just opened its new office at One@Changi City, reflecting its commitment to Singapore and its financial landscape, it said yesterday.

The facility, which encompasses over 75,000 square feet across two levels, accommodates close to 700 employees from the bank’s chief operating office. Finance, HR, and audit teams are relocating from Mapletree Business City into an expanded, 40 per cent larger space. 

The One@Changi City office functions as a hub for innovation, catering to future business expansion and the growth of the bank’s operations and technology departments in Singapore. It serves as a hub for the bank’s operations in Asia, the bank said.

The bank highlighted that flexible workstations, breakout areas and meeting spaces facilitate idea sharing and creativity, and elements of modern technology are woven into the new office.

Sustainability is a key pillar of the bank’s vision. It believes that the advanced facilities reflect this commitment. Workspaces incorporate eco-friendly materials and energy-efficient lighting which align with the bank’s commitment to reducing its environmental footprint.

Staff collaboration

“Our new office at One@Changi City signifies a new era for Julius Baer and reinforces our strong commitment to Singapore,” Yee Kim Tan, branch manager Singapore, said.

“Singapore stands as a pivotal location in our global network, doubling as a dynamic banking and innovation hub,” Andreas Zingg, chief operating officer Asia, added. “This new and expanded future-ready workplace promises to enhance our technology and operations, as we tap into the deep and diverse talent base in the country to set new standards for Julius Baer in Asia and serve the global needs of our clients in this region.” 

In July 2023 Julius Baer moved to a new office in Aerocity, New Delhi, part of a five-year strategy to ramp up operations in India. In April last year it also opened a new office in Two Taikoo Place, Hong Kong.
