3 Questions to Gregor Koch

We asked Gregor Koch, General Manager/Head of China, about the people who use his services, what his customers expect, and how he can surprise them.

1. Who uses your services and expertise?

The financial market in China is highly regulated. We have more than 25 years of experience in this very special market and have gained extensive experience with the local authorities during this time. We have had a local operating branch and a banking license since 2022. This enables us not only to provide LBBW's customers with market access in China, but also to offer comprehensive banking products.

2. What attractive options do customers often underestimate?

We offer companies in China the same products, services and advice that they are accustomed to from LBBW in Germany. For large companies and local financial institutions, we are the gateway to LBBW's global network and the European financial markets.

3. How can you surprise your customers?

When it comes to export financing, customers often realize the immense competitive advantage they gain from our advice during negotiations. And the subsidiaries of German companies generally find that local banks are more accessible once our team is involved. In addition, our local employees have an extensive local network, so we can also help clients with complex issues/non-banking topics or provide contacts.

Above all, foreign trade is the engine that drives the economy.
