The continuing bonanza for banks over the past five years may be coming to an end, at least for some, following the recent subprime crisis. But for many, strong economic growth around the globe, especially in developing economies, continues to provide a key platform for record profits and expanding profitability. The Banker’s eighth Bank of the Year Awards – sponsored by Bahrain Financial Services Development – reflect the success and financial achievements of the top banks from countries across the globe.

Our 155 Bracken winners, representing a record 143 countries and all the regions of the world, are the cream of the global banking community and the best achievers in the industry.
