The accolade of “Best Bank” is awarded by Global Finance’s editors after extensive consultations with corporate financial executives, bankers and analysts throughout the world. The award is based on performance over the past year and other subjective criteria such as management excellence. Factors considered included growth in assets, profitability, strategic relationships, customer service, competitive pricing and innovative products.
Commenting on the results that have seen Bank of Valletta win, once again, the Best Bank Award for Malta, Joseph D. Giarraputo, publisher and president of Global Finance said, “The banks that Global Finance is honouring set themselves apart by anticipating and responding to the specific needs of their customers, which vary greatly from country to country and region to region”. “With the recovery from the financial crisis moving along slowly, these banks have performed the best under very difficult conditions”, he added.
The Best Bank Award adds on to other prestigious achievements that BOV has registered in the past months, which included winning, for the second year in a row, the Best Trade Finance Bank 2014 for Malta by Global Finance.
