The bank was presented with this award at a ceremony held on 2 December 2015 at the Hilton London Bankside in London.
The winners of the Bank of the Year Awards are selected each year by a panel of judges from The Banker based on information collected via a questionnaire. The judges nominate one bank per country which they believe has best adapted to the challenges of our times during the year under review.
"We are delighted with this award which we consider to be recognition of our permanent efforts to best serve our customers, for example in respect of digitisation of our services. We want to share this award with our customers, to thank them for the confidence they place in the bank. I would also like to congratulate our employees, as it is thanks to their commitment and professionalism that the bank has won this distinction. They have successfully responded to our customers' needs and to the challenges of a rapidly changing environment," says Carlo Thill, Chairman of the BGL BNP Paribas Management Board.
