ABA Bank has been named “The Best Bank in Cambodia in 2017” in Global Finance Magazine’s 23rd annual awards, which judges banks around the world to find the best for each country. This title becomes the third consecutive award of ABA Bank from the respectable financial magazine.

Moreover, the subjective criteria included the opinions of equity analysts, credit rating analysts, banking consultants, and others involved in the industry.

According to Global Finance, this year’s winners are those banks who attended carefully to their customer needs and accomplished better results while laying the foundation for further success. That is exactly what we are focusing on and I am glad the judging panel of the magazine praised it so high.”

Its focus on retail and business clientele, with an eye on digital solutions and online apps for both, is accompanied by a strong commitment to small and medium local enterprises.”
