Security Bank officers were again recognized by The Asset as among the country’s best local currency bond individuals in sales for 2022 at the latest Asian Local Currency Bond Benchmark Review.
In its latest announcement, Security Bank’s Vice President and Head of Sales for its Institutional desk, Angeline Sia-Uy, together with FISD Sales Officers Jyka Aicitel Balista and Leikeesha Dungan, were highly commended in the sales category. Sia-Uy was consistently ranked in the review for over ten years.
“We’re glad to be highly commended in the review—these show that we were able to understand and help our clients navigate this volatile environment,” said Uy. “These recognitions prove that we continue to provide top-notch BetterBanking services to our clients.”
The Asian Local Currency Bond Benchmark Review provides data on investors’ product needs and the market penetration of banks active in local currency bonds. More than 400 fixed-income investors across ten Asian markets are surveyed: China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand.
“Amid the challenging environment, we continue to deliver BetterBanking in the new normal,” said Jim Yap, Senior Vice president and head of Treasury sales at Security Bank. “We aim to make sure our clients have only the best to rely on for their banking & investment needs as we work on reaching our goal of becoming the most customer-centric bank in the Philippines,”
The Asset’s individual rankings are determined through investors’ nominations based on functions. Those with the highest weighted score according to job function and the main local currency bond markets covered during the survey period are then chosen as the top individuals for the region. For 2022, more than 500 sell-side individuals were nominated and over 200 were ranked.
