The Philippine Savings Bank (PSEPSB) (shortened as PSBank or abbreviated as PSB) is a savings bank based in the Philippines. It is a subsidiary of Metrobank and is the second-largest savings bank in the Philippines.

Subsidiaries and affiliates[edit]

PSBank in itself is a subsidiary of Metrobank, and as such is affiliated with it. PSBank is affiliated with Toyota Financial Services Philippines Corporation (TFSPC), where it currently has a 25% stake.

Ownership[edit]

Competition[edit]

PSBank competes with other savings banks, such as BPI Family Savings Bank and RCBC Savings Bank. The bank is also competing against multinational savings bank such as Citibank Savings and HSBC Savings. However, since PSBank is considered a major bank, it also competes with bigger financial institutions. It does not, however, aggressively compete with parent company Metrobank.

Controversies[edit]

Impeachment of Renato Corona[edit]

PSBank officials were about to receive a subpoena request in connection with the Impeachment of Renato Corona due to the allegations of a secret US$ account under the name of Renato Corona.[2]

In addition, the PSBank executives were also asked to bring consumer identification and specimen signature card(s) of the bank account(s) under Corona's name which won P1 million in the PSBank Monthly Millions Raffle Promo.[3]

Pork Barrel Case[edit]

During the senate investigations involving the 'pork barrel' case, PSBank was one of the domestic Philippine banks included in the senate inquiry about the bank accounts of the whistleblowers.[4]

Moreover, PSBank was also included as one of the banks from which Sen. Ramon Revilla Jr. and his family, as well as those of Janet Lim-Napoles and her pseudo-NGOs, have utilized to launder the controversial “pork barrel” funds.[5]
