Business Function
Group Finance aims to deliver world-class standards in reporting, financial planning and finance processes.

The bank is also a certified Accredited Training Organisation (ATO) for the Singapore Qualification Programme by the Singapore Accountancy Commission and an Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) Approved Employer.
In 2021, DBS launched the New Cost Allocation program (NCA) in Singapore. The program enables data-driven/ driver-based allocations, provides cost transparency and supports strategic business decisions like pricing differentiated by customer/ product/ channel.
The bank has also recently embarked on a large-scale transformation to reimagine end to end customer/ product journeys, implement horizontal organisations and a data-driven operating model (DDOM). We plan to leverage NCA to enable the following DDOM target outcomes:
  • Enable a drive to digital: Business adoption of data-driven/ driver-based cost allocations at customer /product/ channel level
  • Develop productivity framework along with business and drive DDOM Control Tower(s) and rituals
  • Customer level P&L analytics for behavioural micro-segmentation / additional use cases
The delivery of this complex program requires a very capable, independent, and highly motivated person to support DDOM use cases and to roll-out NCA in other markets.
