Euromoney's Awards for Excellence
The original and most prestigious awards in banking
The programme is the definitive annual awards programme for the banking industry, celebrating the achievements of banks and bankers from across the globe.
For over 30 years, Euromoney has recognised the banks and bankers that have demonstrated their differentiation, pioneering a comprehensive awards programme that today remains the industry benchmark globally.
Winning an award for excellence is a career-defining achievement and your chance to gain well-deserved recognition from your peers, in an industry where differentiation is highly sought after and exceptionally difficult to demonstrate.
Easier to enter and covering more of the industry than ever before, Euromoney’s 2024 Awards for Excellence are the most prestigious awards of their kind.
ABOUT THE AWARDS
From 25 global awards – including the world’s best bank, investment bank, and banker of the year – to ten awards per region and eight per country, Euromoney’s Awards for Excellence cover the areas of banking most important to a bank’s key stakeholders, board and executive management teams.
Each award is submission-based, allowing each bank to tell the story of its achievements, innovations and performance over the 12-month award period.
We seek the best of the best in banking services globally, regionally and in each country. As every year, size is important but certainly not paramount. Profitability is vital, but so is an ability to demonstrate growth, relative out performance compared with peers and the ability to adapt to changing market conditions and/or client needs.
THE JUDGING AND RESEARCH PROCESS
Once submissions have been received, our team of editors, journalists and researchers will undertake thorough analysis of their content.
In conjunction with our own market knowledge and research, this will then be used to inform final decisions made by our editorial committee.
Awards for ExcellenceBanco Santander’s headquarters are in Europe, but the centre of gravity of its operations has been drifting westward to Latin America for many years now. Over the review period, the bank posted a solid year of progress among many of its Latin American markets, which comprise Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Colombia and Peru.
Awards for ExcellenceDespite the war in Ukraine, the past year has seen UniCredit operating with more of the purpose and commitment that international banks in central and eastern Europe too often lack.
Awards for ExcellenceFootball clubs undergoing a period of transition often talk of needing a transfer window or two to get where they need to be. More often than not, this doesn’t work. Better-run teams continue to make clear-minded decisions that keep them ahead of the pack. Catching up is always hard to do.
Awards for ExcellenceIn many African countries, Standard Bank is not as large as it would like to be. But it has a physical presence in 20 African countries and is already by far the biggest pan-African group in terms of its scale in the main sub-Saharan markets, the size of its balance sheet and its absolute profit.
