Overseas asset allocation, a necessary arrangement? – CIMB bank account

With the development trend of economic globalization, more and more people begin to pay attention to overseas investment and asset allocation. The establishment of an overseas bank account is the first step of investment, but also one of the necessary conditions for business exchanges and development.

CIMB Bank is Malaysia’s second-largest bank and is headed by Nasir Rasa, the brother of Prime Minister Najib Razak. It is spread throughout Southeast Asia, with CIMB Islamic Bank in the Middle East and representative offices in Shanghai, New York and London.
