Asian Banking & Finance Awards 2023 are now open for nominations

Banks and financial institutions may now send their entries for the Wholesale Banking Awards, Retail Banking Awards, and Corporate and Investment Banking Awards.

Industry players in the banking and finance industry still need to keep an eye on market trends and customers' responses to such trends, especially since the Asia Pacific continues to move towards economic recovery.

To recognise banks and financial institutions that remained vigilant about market issues and strive to provide services to customers despite economic challenges, Asian Banking and Finance is proud to launch the 2023 edition of the Wholesale Banking Awards, Retail Banking Awards, and Corporate and Investment Banking Awards.

Firms are encouraged to send entries to these awards programmes which aim to honour exceptional banks and financial companies across Asia Pacific that have remained competitive and developed remarkable services amidst the rapidly evolving industry.

Through these programmes, banks from across the region vie for recognition in various categories including retail products, trade finance, cast management, and mergers and acquisitions, among others.

“At DBS, we are so honoured and proud to be bestowed these two wonderful and fabulous awards. I just want to say a quick word of thanks to the project teams that worked on both awards. But I think beyond that, for in particular the COVID Management Award, a huge shoutout to the entire bank. I think every one of them went through the real tough journey of the whole COVID episode and they continue to work tirelessly to deliver everything they could to ensure that the bank continued running seamlessly whilst we continue to deliver the best top-notch customer experience to our customers that we could,” said Alfian Sharifuddin, DBS Hong Kong’s Managing Director and Head of Technology & Operations, Hong Kong & Mainland China.

The firm was recognised with the ABF Retail Banking Award for Core Banking System Initiative of the Year - Hong Kong and COVID Management Initiative of the Year - Hong Kong.
