Founded by Datuk Wee Kheng Chiang, UOB was incorporated on 6 August 1935 as the United Chinese Bank; the change of name was effected in 1965. The Bank catered mainly to the Fujian community in its early years but over the past decades, UOB has grown in strength and stature. Through a series of acquisitions, it is now a leading bank in Asia. Besides Far Eastern Bank in Singapore, UOB’s major banking subsidiaries in the region are United Overseas Bank (Malaysia), United Overseas Bank (Thailand), PT Bank UOB Indonesia and United Overseas Bank (China). Today, the UOB Group has a network of more than 500 offices in 19 countries and territories in Asia Pacific, Western Europe and North America.
UOB Taipei is a full-license bank that can undertake all forms of banking activities. Other than providing the traditional services in facilitating trade and remittances, we also engage actively in corporate & investment banking, treasury services as well as wholesaling of banknotes. We are focused in providing local customers with cross-border banking needs, especially those companies with investments in China where the UOB Group is privileged to have branch operations in 6 of its major cities.
With a complete setup that is centrally located in the commercial heart of Taiwan, UOB Taipei Branch has successfully established a strong network of clientele both locally and abroad. We strongly believe in teamwork, and we cooperate very closely with other branches of the Group, especially those in the Greater China market. The Group has placed significant emphasis on us, and we will remain dedicated to our mission: “To become a premier bank in the Asia-Pacific region, committed to providing quality products and excellent customer service”.
United Overseas Bank (UOB) Group first set foot on Taiwan in January 1992 as a representative office. Three years later, on 28 August 1995, UOB Taipei Branch was formally established. As the banking industry continues to liberalise in Taiwan, our business concurrently expanded to include an Offshore Banking Unit (OBU) on 2 April 2001.
