HSBC Global Payments and Cash Management has once again been voted the ‘Best Cash Management Bank in Asia’ in Euromoney’s highly regarded Cash Management Poll.

Now in its 10th year, the poll recognises leadership in cash management through the polling of banks’ corporate and institutional clients. Treasury and finance professionals worldwide were asked to indicate which international banks they currently use for their cash management services.

They were then asked to rate the services provided by their lead ‘Cash Management Bank’ across various categories, such as the effectiveness of their cash management solutions, quality of service and support, sophistication of banking technology and systems security.

In addition to being voted the Best Cash Management Bank in Asia, HSBC also dominated the domestic polls, coming first in 13 markets by being voted as ‘Best Cash Management Bank’ domestically in Australia, Bangladesh, Brunei, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Vietnam – An unprecedented achievement.

Achieving this ranking reaffirms HSBC as the leading provider of integrated cash management services across the region, exemplifying the bank’s profile in global, regional and local markets.
