Now, it operates a network of 41 branches and approximately 1,800 banking outlets inside and outside China, and the number of employees exceeds 52,000. In recent years, the Bank has accelerated its internationalization and integration. It has been continuously expediting globalization as seen by the establishment of Hong Kong Branch, Singapore Branch, London Branch and SPDB International Holdings Ltd. The establishments of SPD Rural Banks, SPDB Financial Leasing Co., Ltd. and SPD Silicon Valley Bank, and acquisition of Shanghai International Trust Co., Ltd., are milestones on the Bank’s journey to becoming a financial group with comprehensive business operations.
Since its public listing on the stock market, SPD Bank has been ranked among the Top 100 Listed Companies in China by Asia Weekly for several consecutive years.

Meanwhile, the Bank ranked 227th on the Fortune Global 500 list, being 48th among Chinese companies and 7th among Chinese banks, demonstrating its sound competitiveness. Furthermore, it is one of the few domestic joint-stock commercial banks rated above investment grade by each of the Big Three credit rating agencies. Fitch Ratings upgraded SPD Bank’s Long-Term Issuer Default Rating to BBB. Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services affirmed its issuer credit ratings of BBB (long-term) and A-2 (short-term). Moody’s Investors Service assigned deposit ratings of Baa2 (long-term) and Prime-2 (short-term) to the Bank. All of the Bank’s rating outlooks are stable. These ratings reflect the Bank’s consistent execution of its business strategy and solid financial performance over the past few years.

In 2017, SPD Bank received several awards granted by the China Banking Association, such as “Excellent Charity Project of the Year,” “Best CSR Green Finance of the Year” and “Best Outlet for Special CSR Contribution of the Year.”
In the new round of development, SPD Bank will fully implement the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress, the National Financial Work Conference and the Central Economic Work Conference.
