Bandar Seri Begawan, 11 December 2018 -   Baiduri Bank rounded off the year with the coveted Bank of The Year award from The Banker magazine in an awards ceremony in London. The achievement marks the fourth international banking award this year for Baiduri Bank and is the thirteenth time that the bank has received this accolade.

The Banker’s nineteenth annual Bank of The Year awards were presented at a gala black-tie dinner at the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane, London on Thursday 29 November 2018. The event was hosted by Fiona Bruce, a BBC presenter and Brian Caplen, Editor at the Banker. Receiving the award on behalf of the bank was Mr. Pierre Imhof, CEO of Baiduri Bank.

Speaking on the Bank’s achievements, Mr. Pierre Imhof said, "The past 18 months has seen Baiduri undergo several developments such as the portfolio acquisition of a departing bank, the upgrade of our banking systems as well as the launch of new products and enhancement of many existing offerings."

He further stated, "It gives us great pride in being recognised as the Bank of the Year for Brunei by a leading international financial publication. I would also like to thank our clients and partners for their loyalty and trust in Baiduri Bank."

In determining the award winners, The Banker, the world’s premier banking and finance resource, looks beyond raw data. The editorial team looks for evidence of banks setting new standards for their local industries whether it be through the use of new technology or innovative ways of expanding their business. The judging is carried out by an editorial committee on the basis of submitted entries and data from The Banker’s database.

Earlier this year, Baiduri Bank received three other international awards, the ‘Domestic Retail Bank of the Year for Brunei 2018’ and ‘The Credit Card Initiative of the Year for Brunei 2018’ from the Asian Banking and Finance magazine as well as the ‘Best Banking Group for Brunei 2018’ from World Finance magazine. Baiduri Bank is proud to be associated with these leading international banking awards.
