2024 Global Winners are now live.

Asia Awards Ceremony: September 2024

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.

  • The strategic case for banks to remain in central and eastern Europe remains intact: that is the official line from Scope Ratings at least. The agency found that faster growth and higher interest rates in CEE have, overall, boosted the profitability of western European banks present in the region.
  • Nerves were jangling hard in Europe last year, when the panic that had seen many tens of billions of dollars’ worth of deposits flee large US regional banks in a matter of hours suddenly began emerging in Europe.
  • If there was ever a time that demonstrated JPMorgan’s credentials as the country’s best bank, it was the crisis in March and April 2023 when US regional banks suddenly faced a balance sheet reckoning triggered by the rapid change in interest rates.
  • When Scotiabank’s long-serving chief executive Brian Porter stepped down at the end of January 2023, after 10 years at the helm and more than 40 years at the bank, he left an institution that was in better shape than he found it, but one that still had much to do.
  • For many US regional banks, the priority in the first part of 2023 was simply survival. But for the very best, ambitions went much further than that. For its excellent financial performance, the product of wise decisions made years ago and the continued execution of an impressive strategy, Fifth Third is the US's best super-regional bank.
