When a young Yeap Chor Ee arrived in the Straits Settlements in the late nineteenth century, one of several thousand unknown and penniless immigrants from southern China, little did he realise he would leave a legacy that would be remembered by generations of Malaysians and Singaporeans long after his demise. More than a rags-to-riches story, this is the fascinating inside story of the banking business Yeap founded in 1918. Ban Hin Lee Bank was Penang’s first homegrown bank and grew to impressive heights with branches all around Malaysia and in Singapore, ultimately merging with Southern Bank in 2000.
