The magazine’s World’s Best Banks awards celebrate the top performers among banks and other providers of financial services from 150 countries. Winners were selected based on performance over the past year, reputation and management excellence.
Not only was ING named ‘Best Bank in the World’, but also collected the ‘Best Bank in Europe’ award for the fourth time in a row.
“ING has been ahead of the curve in adopting digital technology and a culture of innovation. It is ‘the bank of the future’, with a clearly defined goal of converging toward a single digital banking platform that is globally scalable,” said Gordon Platt, editor of Global Finance. “From payments and cash management to trade finance services and working capital, ING offers customised, integrated solutions incorporating the latest innovations to improve safety and efficiency.”
The jury selected the winners after consultations with corporate financial executives, analysts and bankers throughout the world. Global Finance’s awards have become a trusted standard of excellence for the global financial community.
