“This recognition reflects our resilience and ability to adapt to a very challenging macroeconomic environment exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as our commitment to creating value for our teeming customers through our best-in-class service and innovative products and solutions.”
“After a year like no other, banking is accelerating its evolution to meet new and heightened expectations. It is without doubt that a recovery in the market to pre-pandemic levels will take time, but some banks are in a better position than others to meet the challenges ahead.
Preparedness for the future is a concern for all banks, but the winners in this year’s World Finance Banking Awards are particularly notable in their regions. All of the winners have demonstrated years of best practice, and are in an ideal situation to meet the coming challenges head on. Congratulations to the winners.”
