HSBC Malaysia has won the coveted award for ‘Best International Bank’ in the country as part of the Asiamoney Best Bank Awards 2020. This is the second year in a row that HSBC has won the award in Malaysia.
The award recognises banks in the Malaysian market that have excelled across a range of core banking activities over the past 12 months.
According to Asiamoney, “HSBC’s response to the coronavirus in Malaysia deserves plaudits”.
In its awards commentary, Asiamoney also said, “Any international investor tapping Malaysian growth or domestic companies looking to go global over the last year probably has an HSBC experience to recount. Milne’s bank plays a key role in a who’s-who of companies and financiers bringing deals to market”.
Stuart Milne, Chief Executive Officer, HSBC Malaysia said, “Financial institutions have a key role to play in supporting the Malaysian economy during this challenging period. The recognition we have received from Asiamoney for the second year in a row is a reflection of our unrelenting commitment to enabling and empowering our customers, our employees and the communities we serve in the country, regardless of the circumstances.
“This has been achieved by strengthening our corporate and retail banking capabilities, accelerating investments in innovation and technology and focusing on sustainable growth. I’d especially like to thank our customers and all my colleagues for their continued loyalty to our business without which, this acknowledgement would not have been possible,” he added.
The bank was also named ‘Best International Bank in Malaysia’ as part of the FinanceAsia Country Awards 2020.
