KBC Bank (Moody's rating A3 with stable outlook) has been active in Asia-Pacific for more than twenty years. It is very selective in offering network solutions to clients and directs itself exclusively to those special clients with whom it looks to build up a long-term relationship. Its strategy in the region is to provide practical and high-quality support for medium-sized clients with significant investments in the region. The strategy is founded on the group's strengths, particularly its comprehensive know-how, experience and systems. KBC has two branches in China: Shanghai and Hong Kong.
