Financial Inclusion Award
Whether in convalescent industrialised countries or hopeful developing economies, all communities face the challenge of including their poorest members in the financial system. Banks serving this segment not only perform a social function, but can also gain access to the potential high-margin customers of the future.
To measure which banks are doing best in this context, The Banker is inviting entries to its seventh annual Financial Inclusion Award.
The winners will be announced at a prestigious gala dinner on December 7th, at the Hilton London Bankside, as part of our Bank of the Year awards.
Email your submission to email@example.com, by no later than Monday, October 3rd, 2016.
For any questions regarding the financial inclusion award, please contact: Simon Duffy (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Western Europe's slow growth, low-interest rate environment is not the most lucrative landscape for the region's banks, but this year's western European Bank of the Year winners have shown impressive levels of expertise and innovation to negotiate these difficult times.
Slow growth across Europe and Western sanctions on Russia coupled to make 2015 a difficult year for many central and eastern European banks but those featured in this year's Bank of the Year awards remained nimble allowing them to produce impressive results.
Home to some of the world's largest and fastest-growing banks, competition among lenders in Asia-Pacific was tough, with only the most innovative and profitable players picking up honours in this year's Bank of the Year Awards.
