The Excellence in Retail Financial Services and Technology Innovation Awards

The Asian Banker Excellence in Retail Financial Services and Technology Innovation is the most rigorous, prestigious and transparent awards programme for consumer financial services in Vietnam.

We assess the products and businesses of banks and non-banks in Vietnam through a comprehensive evaluation process. Previously, we assessed banks based on criteria and scorecards which we believed the retail banking proposition and technology proposition should be. However, in line with the rapid transformation the financial industry is experiencing today we have also revamped our awards programme. We have redefined categories, introduced new scorecards and opened the programme to financial technology (fintech) companies, marketplace platforms and other alternative providers. Thus, non-bank players in Vietnam are eligible and invited to participate in the programme, in addition to commercial banks.

We invite financial institutions and technology companies to make submissions on or before 29 January 2021. Please contact Ms Janine Crisanto at  jcrisanto@theasianbanker.com if you are interested in participating in this or any future awards.

The Asian Banker ensures strict transparency and integrity in this programme, which is demonstrated from the various scorecards and rankings that we collate from our member-based Retail Finance Working Group as well as through our trusted panel of advisors, who supervise and review the work of our researchers.
