British bank HSBC
The report said DBS
ING, which has put its private banking operations in Switzerland and Asia up for sale to pay down bailout funds it received from the Dutch government, is also considering plans to split its insurance arm from its banking business, said the report.
The Sunday Times said DBS was interested only in the Asian unit but that Julius Baer was keen on both assets.
Neither HSBS nor ING was immediately available for comment.
