Global Finance names Ameriabank as the Best Bank of Armenia in 2017

ArmInfo. Global Finance has named Ameriabank as the Best Bank of Armenia in 2017. Ameriabank has annually received this award from Global Finance since 2012. Global Finance's press release sent to ArmInfo says that Ameriabank is declared as one of the best banks in Asia-Pacific. 

Global Finance magazine has announced its twenty-fourth annual awards for the World's Best Banks. The honorees for Asia-Pacific are presented here. A full report on the selections will appear in the May issue of Global Finance, with winners chosen in more than 150 countries across Africa, Asia-Pacific, Central & Eastern Europe, Latin America, The Middle East, North America and Western Europe. The May report will also feature selections for the Best US Regional Banks and the World's Best Banks By Region.  Overall global winners will be announced in the summer and published in the October issue.

The winners of this year's awards are those banks that attended carefully to their customers' needs in difficult markets and accomplished better results while laying the foundations for future success.

All selections were made by the editors of Global Finance after extensive consultations with corporate financial executives, bankers and banking consultants, and analysts throughout the world. In selecting these top banks, Global Finance considered factors that range from the quantitative objective to the informed subjective. In addition, a poll of Global Finance's corporate readership was conducted in order to increase the accuracy and reliability of the results. Banks were invited to submit entries supporting their selection. Objective criteria considered included: growth in assets, profitability, geographic reach, strategic relationships, new business development and innovation in products. Subjective criteria included the opinions of equity analysts, credit rating analysts, banking consultants and others involved in the industry.

"Global Finance's annual Best Bank Awards celebrate financial institutions that excel at delivering customers the services and products tailored to meet their unique needs," said Joseph D.  Giarraputo, publisher and editorial director of Global Finance.  "These banks may not be the biggest or oldest, but their energy and adaptability make them stand out in the field."

The source says that the winners will be honored at an Awards Ceremony held during the IMF/World Bank Annual Meetings in Washington DC on the morning of October 14, 2017 at the National Press Club.
