For the first time, the awards were handed via visual presentation to the winners due to the pandemic. Winning companies were also interviewed throughout the whole month of August to share their thoughts on winning in the most prestigious banking awards in Asia.

This year’s nominations were judged by a panel consisting of Liew Nam Soon, ASEAN Managing Partner, Markets at Ernst and Young; Ho Kok-Yong, Partner, Leader and Financial Services SEA & Singapore at Deloitte & Touche LLP; John Dovaston, APAC Financial Services Leader at PwC; Chia Tek Yew, Head of Financial Services Advisory at KPMG, Gabriel Seow, Audit Partner at BDO LLP, Singapore; Justin Tan, APAC Financial Services Partner at Mazars; and Sean Choo, APAC Financial Services Partner at Mazars.

"As we have seen in this year’s winners, banks were still able to navigate and up their game even during the pandemic. We are looking forward to seeing how they will continue to provide the best service to clients in spite of these very difficult times" said Tim Charlton, publisher of Asian Banking & Finance magazine.
