The Asian Banker conducts an annual Leadership Achievement Awards programme that focuses on the performance of CEOs, chairmen and boards in the financial services industry in Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa.
This year, the awards are specifically aimed at evaluating the performance and response of senior industry practitioners and the banks that they lead during the COVID-19 pandemic. Important benchmarks were considered during the assessment including the level of digitalisation of institutions’ operations and processes; risk management capabilities, especially around credit and liquidity risk management; how they deploy funds in a manner relevant to society; and finally how they create social capital, the means by which business justifies value through contributions to communities.
The Transaction Finance Awards programme, held virtually this year, evaluates the achievements of financial institutions in cash management, payments, and trade finance across Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. We have recently redefined the categories and engaged fintech platforms to compete alongside traditional banks.
The “Heads of Transaction Finance Dialogue” will be held in conjunction with the virtual awards ceremony. This will bring together senior executives and decision-makers from the winning institutions to share insights and best practices on their COVID-19 responses, measures to grow the business as well as ongoing and digital transformation initiatives. The discussions will focus on the key findings from the awards program, enabling senior executives to capture the thinking of peers, facilitators, and contributors.
