DBS Bank Limited (“DBS”) announced the launch of the first two series of derivative warrants listed on the Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing Limited (“HKEX”) as DBS was approved as a listed structured products issuer by HKEX in Hong Kong.
Among the 16 authorized derivative warrants issuers in Hong Kong, DBS’ current credit ratings awarded by HKEX recognised rating agencies (Moody’s and Standard and Poor’s) are Aa1 and AA- respectively, an indication of full confidence for investors in the market.

With market demand on the rise, DBS plans to continue adding its product offerings this year, with additional derivative warrants that cover over 60 major underlying stocks listed in Hong Kong.
