The Bank of Tokyo, Ltd. set up its first representative office in the then Malaya in October 1957 and subsequently obtained its banking license in June 1959, making it the first Japanese bank to provide a full range of banking services.
The Bank of Tokyo, Ltd. (Kuala Lumpur Branch) successfully managed to strengthen economic ties between Malaya and Japan and played a crucial role in the economic development of Malaysia by encouraging large number of Japanese foreign direct investment into this new emerging economy. Further to Malaysian Government's "Look East Policy" in the 80's to attract Japanese investments, the Bank's International Trade and Investment Bureau which was set up in 1979, played a bigger role in disseminating vital information to attract more Japanese investors into Malaysia.
On June 1, 1994, Bank of Tokyo (Malaysia) Berhad was locally incorporated, pursuant to the provision of the Banking and Financial Institutions Acts, 1989 (BAFIA 1989). The locally incorporated entity took over the banking operations from The Bank of Tokyo, Ltd. on July 1, 1994 and became a fully owned subsidiary of its Parent Bank in Tokyo. MORE>>>
