Winners were selected based on performance over the past year and other subjective criteria including reputation and management excellence. Global Finance made the selections after extensive consultations with bankers, corporate financial executives and analysts throughout the world, it said.
“In the face of global regulatory upheaval and still-trying economic conditions, these financial institutions have out-performed their peers,” said Global Finance’s publisher and editorial director, Joseph D. Giarraputo. “As many developed and emerging economies continue to improve, these banks are well-positioned to take best advantage of the upturn in the economic cycle—which will benefit both their customers and all of their stakeholders.”
The World’s Best Banks and other Global Finance 2014 award winners will be honoured at the awards ceremonies in Boston on October 1 during the SIBOS conference and in Washington, DC on October 11 during the IMF/World Bank Annual Meetings, the report said. – TradeArabia News Service
