Monetary Authority of Singapore Order to Close Down BSI Bank

The Monetary Authority of Singapore's (MAS) order to close down BSI Bank sends out a strong message to banks and financial institutions operating in the Republic that it has a zero-tolerance policy towards those abusing the financial ecosystem here, industry experts said yesterday. MAS revoked BSI Bank's merchant banking licence in Singapore for serious breaches of anti-money-laundering rules amid a global probe into the accounts of Malaysian state investment fund 1MDB. It also imposed fines on the lender amounting to SGD 13.3 million. MAS is working with the Swiss authorities to ensure an orderly shutdown of BSI Bank's operations in Singapore. While industry experts said there will be no big impact on BSI Bank's clients in general, those found involved in illicit monetary transactions will be taken to task. Veteran market watcher Mano Sabnani said the problems at BSI are not likely to be contagious. In the past five years, rules surrounding tax reporting and anti-money-laundering have been tightened in Singapore and globally. While this has resulted in increased costs in compliance and surveillance, Ms. Tan Su Shan, the co-chair of MAS' Private Banking Industry Group, said it is better for all industry players in the long run as standards are lifted across the board. Singapore prides itself as a clean and trusted financial centre based on solid regulations. To continue to grow as a robust and sustainable financial hub, she said industry players must recognize that they play an important role to guard against illicit funds flows.
