"UOB FDI Advisory has helped Owndays in the market expansion into Singapore and support our subsequent market expansions into ASEAN through its FDI centres and its ecosystem partners such as Singapore Economic Development Board. This has helped us to navigate the complexities when expanding in this region.”

Managing Director, Owndays
"Besides offering banking solutions which were instrumental in our reverse takeover of a listed company in Singapore, UOB’s deep knowledge in Southeast Asia has helped us in the establishment of a Regional Headquarters in Singapore as well as providing valuable advice in the expansions into Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. The Board has appointed UOB to be the main bank for all the group’s financial requirements."

"Vietnam’s young population and rising middle class make it an attractive market for us. When we started making plans to expand into the country two years ago, we had encountered some obstacles with the local business environment as well as the complex banking regulations. At that time we were unable to approach the appropriate government agencies. With the help of the UOB FDI Advisory Unit, we got connected with some right local partners quickly, enabling us to complete our expansion plan efficiently. With UOB’s continued support, we have since expanded our operations and launched our showroom in Ho Chi Minh City."
