Asian Banking and Finance Awards 2017 recognises record number of winners

Over 180 trophies were awarded to winning banks and insurance companies.

Almost 100 outstanding banks and insurance companies from 30 countries were recognised at the 2017 Retail Banking Awards, Wholesale Banking Awards, and Insurance Asia Awards held at the Shangri-La Singapore on 13 July. The event drew over 260 banking and insurance executives, beating last year’s record.

This year’s nominations were judged by representatives from the Big Four accounting firms: Mohit Mehrotra, regional head of financial services, strategy & operation at Deloitte; Liew Nam Soon, ASEAN managing partner at Ernst and Young; Egidio Zarrella, ASPAC head of banking and capital markets, KPMG; and Andrew Taggart, partner, financial services leader, PwC Southeast Asia Consulting.

“This night proves that there is still a lot of life in the banks. We have very good winners who are deserving of their awards tonight. We’d also like to thank all our judges for the ABF Awards and Insurance Asia Awards,” said Tim Charlton, publisher of the Asian Banking and Finance and Insurance Asia magazines.
