“Based on client votes and assessments, these prestigious awards honour financial institutions that deliver exceptional services and innovative solutions. Trust, timing and tenacity matter. Clients come back to us because they trust us to deliver on ideation and execution of landmark deals, especially with green financing on the rise. Timing is key as we help clients navigate uncertainties of interest rate hikes, while demonstrating tenacity to exceed their targets. This is much needed in the current volatile market environment as we double down and help clients meet their fund-raising and sustainability goals,” Dato’ Ami Moris, CEO of Maybank IBG said.
