Against the backdrop of a very difficult year for all, we are the recipient of 56 awards, honouring the achievements of our clients and the Bank.
The Asset’s annual Treasury and Trade awards are one of the industry’s leading and highly anticipated awards, recognising the achievements of clients and their financial providers.
Recipient of 56 awards, spanning all areas of transaction banking, we are especially proud to be Best Renminbi Bank in 11 of 18 markets in Asia, Africa, Middle East and LatAM, and to be named Best Transaction Bank in China for the first time.
