Asian Banking & Finance Retail Banking Awards 2011 winners announced

The region's best banks were recognised at this year's awards held in Singapore. More than 150 bankers from around Asia were on hand to cheer on the winners at Asia's most prestigious retail banking awards.

Since initiating the Awards in 2007, Asian Banking and Finance Magazine (ABF) has been recognizing the best performances of various banking and finance institutions around Asia. This year, ABF focused on best-of-the-best practices in the retail banking sector.

The nominations were screened by the top partners of different firms in Asia. The judges included:

  • Dominic Nixon, PwC
  • Egidio Zarrella, KPMG
  • Mohit Mehrotra, Deloitte Consulting, Southeast Asia
  • Liew Nam Soon, Ernst and Young Advisory LLP

The judges looked at the nominees’ strategy, service or product based on what makes it different from others (innovation), how it benefits the market as a whole (effectiveness), and how flexible it is to changes and progressive opportunities (dynamism). 

Publisher Tim Charlton said: "This year saw a record number of entries and some excellent examples of banks leading through innovation."
