Capital Management

UOB’s capital management objectives are to ensure that the Group maintains an optimal capital level that supports its businesses, strategic growth and investment opportunities, and to meet regulatory requirements. We also aim to sustain the strong credit ratings for which UOB is noted by our external stakeholders, including our depositors and investors. We also seek to be efficient in our capital mix, to keep our overall cost of capital low and to deliver sustainable returns in the form of dividends to our shareholders.
