This is an old news dated year 2007. It stated the change in business strategy within banks in Singapore. We foresee more facility closure gradually spanning the next 20 years. "The safe deposit box facilities are increasingly expensive for banks to build and maintain, and they take up valuable space. And as office rents in Singapore soar, businesses, including banks, have to scrutinise the way they use every square metre of space. They must examine whether the space could be used for more profitable services."  continue reading >>
