OCBC appoints Dennis Hong as managing director of OCBC Securities

He began his career as a police officer.

OCBC Bank appointed Dennis Hong as managing director of OCBC Securities, its wholly-owned brokerage subsidiary, succeeding Raymond Chee. The appointment will take effect on 1 May 2018.

Dennis has served as deputy managing director of OCBC Securities since 15 March 2018. He has been actively involved and engaged in business decisions since the start of the year under the guidance of Chee, as part of the leadership transition.

He began his professional career in the Singapore Police Force after earning a Public Service Commission scholarship. After joining OCBC in 2010, Dennis was handpicked to support OCBC Bank Group CEO Samuel Tsien as his Executive Assistant, and for the company's Executive Development Programme which was run in collaboration with INSEAD Business School.

He joined OCBC in 2010 as a Post Graduate Management Associate. Upon completion of the programme, Dennis became a relationship manager at the bank’s Wholesale Corporate Marketing division, where he managed a portfolio of large corporates, with a focus on the aviation industry.

“Dennis is taking over the reins at our brokerage arm at an exciting time for OCBC’s wealth management business. Our wealth management income, which includes stockbroking income, increased a robust 43% to hit a new high of $3.25b last year. This growth momentum is expected to continue," OCBC COO and OCBC Securities chairman Ching Wei Hong said.
