For the second consecutive year, HSBC Sri Lanka has been awarded the prestigious ‘Best International Bank’ title by Asiamoney in its Best Bank Awards 2018.
The award is an indication of HSBC’s strong financial position, market leadership and growth with the ability to meet customer needs in a changing market. HSBC’s local franchise operates under three key businesses – Retail Banking and Wealth Management, Commercial Banking and Global Banking and Markets which offer a range of banking and financial services.
The strength of HSBC’s franchise and presence in the local market is matched by the ability to cover large-scale investments. HSBC is proud to be the only bank to have consecutively partnered the Sovereign on all its bond issuances since 2007 and to create thought leadership on how Sri Lanka can leverage from opportunities stemming from BRI. These, combined with the support of HSBC’s global footprint and strong track record of facilitating new investors of capital markets in Sri Lanka, are confidence boosters for the newcomers/offshore entities looking to invest in the economy.
Adding another award to its proud legacy of over 125 years of banking in the country, CEO Mark Prothero said, “This is another great achievement for HSBC Sri Lanka and the team. We are pleased to have maintained our leading position and to be recognised by Asiamoney for the second year in a row. We look forward to proudly upholding this title as we continue to grow our local business by connecting customers to global opportunities through our integrated products and services, leveraging on our global network.”
As part of the Euromoney group, Asiamoney is considered among the most influential financial magazines and a leading authority on finance, banking, investment and treasury in the Asia-Pacific region and is read and trusted by the region’s leading companies, bankers, brokers, investors, regulators and policymakers.
