Established in 1975 in Singapore, Phillip Securities began
as a small localized stock broking company. It has grown steadily
and progressively since then, remaining profitable each year
despite the vagaries of economic conditions. Today, the Phillip
Group consists of 30 main operating entities, employing well
over 2,000 employees located in 11 countries: Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, France and China.
Within the nexus of the fastest growing region in the world - the FAR EAST - the
Group offers a comprehensive, "total investment service".
The Phillip Group is solidly capitalized to meet the demands of institutional clients
and sufficiently caring to ensure that service is not compromised even for the retail
customer. Research and state of the art technology are the hallmarks of its commitment
to service, par excellence.
Always in the forefront of innovation and constantly expanding its range of investment
products to meet the changing needs of stock markets, the Group pioneered internet
stock trading by first introduced POEMS (Phillip's On-line Electronic Mart System),
the internet stock trading system in October 1996. Today, investors can enjoy POEMS
as a one-stop investment service, which enables the investors to access a wide range
of financial products and services, in depth financial information, and trade directly
anytime of the day and from anywhere in the world.
Phillip Securities Group expanded its business into Thailand
in 1998, by taking over Amsteel Securities (Thailand) Public
Company Limited, formerly known as First Asia Securities Public
Company Limited, to become Phillip Securities (Thailand) Public
Company Limited, a member of the Stock Exchange of Thailand,
SET member No. 34. The Company has since been growing progressively and now has about 300 people located at the Silom Head Office, and Branches at Yaowaraj, Vibhavadeerangsit, Srinakarin, Bangkapi, Hua Lamphong, Rungsit, KhonKaen, Phisanulok, Had Yai, Chumporn and Sakonnakorn.
Phillip Securities (Thailand) currently offers the full stock brokerage service,
and in December 1999 launched POEMS with Phillip's Telebroker to become the first
Stock Broker in Thailand to offer internet and mobile stock trading to the Thai investors.
In line with the overall strategy of the Group, Phillip Securities (Thailand) will
continue to introduce and expand its products and services to compliment and assist
in the growth of the market in Thailand.
