LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - July 3, 2012) - World Finance is pleased to announce its Banking Awards 2012, celebrating the successes of the best banking institutions from around the globe. And the announcement of these prestigious awards comes at the most trying time for the industry in a generation.
The world's glare is firmly upon Europe, where long-established institutions are now battling to avoid the minefield of bad debt and poor investments left behind by their less scrupulous counterparts. With the fate of nations now intertwined with the survival of their banking industries, Europe's credit situation is poised to fundamentally shape history.
The Banking Awards 2012 pay tribute to the institutions who have tackled tough times with innovative strategies. World Finance has observed how investment banks turn away from turbulent markets and look towards the untapped opportunities of Latin America and Asia to secure growth. In turn, the top private banks have seen to be working hard to adapt their services to meet the new needs of their customers. Commercial banks and groups too have been seen to be working diligently to ensure their loan books are healthy and their position in the market and with customers is strong.
World Finance's Banking Awards celebrate those who have capitalised rather than caved at times of high stakes. With strong resolve, our winners have not merely looked to protect their interests but to secure a solid future for their institutions, investors and, importantly, their customers.
A range of articles from Banking Award winners can be found in the July - August edition of the World Finance, out now. To view a full list of Banking Award winners along with videos and much more, visit www.worldfinance.com.
