One of the most significant perceptions that Hong Leong has over other banks is that it is not related to the government in any way. This is where consumers often like to use Hong Leong’s services for its competitiveness. Because it is in the market with other players and is a bank which can stand on its own, positive vibes will follow suit. Another common perception about Hong Leong Group is that it is actually a Singaporean bank although it is headquartered in Malaysia.
