We thank you for your continuing support of and interest in Euromoneys Awards for Excellence. Without your support we would not be able to produce what the industry considers to be the definitive awards for global financial services.
We know that we ask much of you when we seek submissions during our awards process. That is why continue to seek ways to simplify the process at your end. We have made considerable changes to the best bank and investment bank awards for each country that will also impact and, we hope, simplify the regional submissions as well.
We continue to seek the best of the best in all countries offering banking services, as well as our regional banking and investment banking champions. As with every year, size, scope and league-table performance are important but certainly not paramount. Profitability is vital, of course, but so is an ability to demonstrate growth, relative outperformance compared with peers and that you have adapted to changing market conditions and/or client needs.
Once submissions are received, our team of editors, journalists and researchers will analyze these in conjunction with our own market knowledge and research before decisions are made by our editorial committee, which I chair.
These decisions are never easy but they would be harder still without your help. Thank you and good luck!
