We bring a strong client-focused culture and professional service to our U.S. customers, as we support their businesses or personal goals domestically, and around the world.
Message from our CEO
Since the United States and China normalized diplomatic relations 40 years ago, the economic interests of both countries have been intertwined and the subsequent benefits to industries and economies around the world have been monumental. Even when trade relations have strained, U.S. and Chinese companies have continued to pursue greater integration through investments and expansion into each other’s respective markets, maximizing the growth potential of both economies.
As one of the largest banks in the world and the first Chinese bank to enter the U.S. market, Bank of China is a stable and reliable financial partner for U.S. and Chinese businesses navigating the increasingly complex, yet ever important global trade environment. Our global network and services empower clients to enter new markets with confidence and from a position of strength. Our expertise and leadership in RMB settlement, clearing and trading also make Bank of China U.S.A. (BOC U.S.A.) the go-to bank for insights on and access to the world’s second-largest economy. Clients are at the core of what we do and our tailored solutions, combined with leading-edge technologies, ensures that their needs are served efficiently and effectively.
While we are a global bank, we bring four decades of local experience and a successful track record of deals in the U.S. market. BOC U.S.A. is proud to partner with many Fortune 500 companies, homegrown enterprises, financial institutions and high net-worth individuals, helping to support their domestic and global business objectives.
We are always focused on serving clients and demonstrating our long-standing commitment to the U.S. market through our business capabilities, but we are also committed to helping the U.S. communities in which we live and serve. Over the past several years, we have contributed over $2 billion to local neighborhoods by participating in community reinvestment efforts to reverse urban blight and support local charities, hospitals and other non-profit organizations.
Bilateral investment and trade cooperation between the U.S. and China benefit the whole world, and we strive to continue playing a leading role in building the bridge between the U.S. and Chinese business communities.
