The world's best at cash management and payments

Awards for Excellence 2002


Citibank lands this year's award as the best at cash management after holding off the challenge of a handful of other banks.

Little has happened in the interim to alter that balance of power. Although HSBC, ABN Amro and JPMorgan can all make good cases for themselves in certain local and regional markets, on a global scale they still have some catching up to do.
