MANAMA: The Banker magazine, a Financial Times publication, has chosen Bank ABC as the winner of the “Bank of the Year-Bahrain” award for 2017.
The award aims to recognise and promote industry-wide excellence in the global banking community.
The awards judging panel, which is composed of The Banker’s editors, has specifically selected Bank ABC due to its “continued success across all key business metrics over the past year”.
The selection process involves reviewing growth and performance figures for the past three years; strategies adopted to handle geopolitical uncertainty and changing regulations; major initiatives and technology projects implemented by the bank; improved client service and diversity and financial inclusion policies.
“We are particularly proud of this award. This is a recognition that we are on the right path to providing our customers with a differentiated experience and creating value for our shareholders,” said Bank ABC Group chief executive Dr Khaled Kawan.
“We have over the past three years revamped our client experience both on our retail and wholesale businesses fronts, expanded our product base and strengthened our footprint across our international network,” he added.
“This well-earned market recognition represents a boost for our almost 3,000 employees who have worked hard every day to get us ahead of the curve with our customers on all fronts of our businesses across the markets where we operate.”
The Banker magazine’s 2017 awards ceremony in London was attended by around 300 CEOs and C-Suite executives from around the globe.
