Alpha Southeast Asia Magazine recognized Security Bank Corporation with two awards during its 6th Annual Southeast Asia’s Institutional Investor Awards for Corporates 2016 and 10th Annual Best Financial Institutions in Southeast Asia held last September 1 at the Conrad Centennial Singapore.
In the Philippines, Security Bank is the only bank among the seven companies voted to the best-managed list and was described as an “emerging banking behemoth”. The bank was voted as one of the top three companies recognized as “Most Organised Investor Relations” and was cited as “Most Improved Investor Relations”.
Security Bank President and CEO Alfonso Salcedo, Jr. said, “These awards validate Security Bank’s consistency in our investor relations practices and strengthen our commitment to continuously improve customer relationships. By providing the best investment tools, sustaining transparency, and enabling fair returns on investments, we help our customers achieve their financial goals. As we fulfill our role as their partner in success, we are taking a step towards being one of the Philippines’ top private universal banks.”
Votes were collected from investors and analysts across the region as well as US and Europe. Thirty publicly-listed Southeast Asian companies were ranked to represent the crème-dela crème of best business practices. As the first and only institutional investor poll focused on Southeast Asia, the poll results present Southeast Asia’s most well-perceived companies.
