Will SG Banks Follow UK In Suspending Dividends like HSBC?
In my recent webinars, I have often been asked whether Singapore Banks will suspend their dividends. This follows news that the European Banks suspending dividends in order to shore up their balance sheet. Closer to home, the UK regulator ordered UK Banks not to pay dividends… which had an implication on HSBC & Standard Chartered as they are headquartered there.
