What Our BT Readers Have To Say

We are delighted to partner and celebrate with the team at The Business Times as it marks a new milestone with its iPad launch. In our fast-paced society, having the convenience to access information and banking transactions on the go is important. Standard Chartered recognised and met this need through "Breeze" – our mobile banking platform where customers can bank anywhere and anytime. There is great synergy and like-mindedness in this partnership as we continue to reach an increasingly sophisticated group of tech-savvy consumers.

I’ve always loved Business Times. The new Business Times iPad app has an easy to navigate interface, uncluttered, and gives me access to the past 7-days issues. Definitely a great way to read and keep me informed wherever I am.

About Business Times

The Business Times (BT), published by Singapore Press Holdings, is South-east Asia's leading business daily. It is Singapore’s only financial daily and provides a complete guide on the local, regional and international business scene.

BT brings to its readers each day a comprehensive and concise package of corporate, financial, economic and political news, analysis and commentary. BT also carries features and the latest lifestyle trends in food, entertainment, shopping, arts, health, travel and design.

In June 1995, BT became the first English-language newspaper in Asia to go on the World Wide Web. Since January 2000, BT Online started to be available from 4am Singapore time (GMT +8 hrs) and to offer news updates throughout the day, from Mondays to Sundays.

Redesigned in September 2004 to engage a new generation of readers, a refreshing blue masthead, bigger fonts and friendlier layout were introduced. The content has been expanded to reflect a complete read, packing in loads of new features, such as specialty pages, a daily take on the health of the Singapore economy and dedicated regional pages.
