Visual Identity

 

道 – by Tan Rui Rong, 2013 UOB Painting of the Year Silver Award Winner (Established Artist)

The ancient Chinese script for “Dao” (道) or “The Way”, at the centre of the painting symbolises man at a crossroads contemplating his next move. The raindrops falling onto the lotus bud nourish it and captivate the dragonfly – a metaphor for life; personifying the creative ways of nature.

In wealth management, investors similarly seek the path to financial success. At UOB Asset Management, we provide insights for your investment journey and distil the wisdom in your quest to uncover an inspiring Way for the year ahead.
