Suncorp Bank has been awarded the Best Bank in Australia title, as part of the global Euromoney Awards for Excellence.

The coveted industry title was in recognition of the Bank’s achievements over the past 12 months, including the strength and position of its balance sheet, commitment to delivering innovative financial solutions, proven ability to adapt to changing market conditions, and prudent risk management capabilities.

Suncorp Bank head of intermediaries, Steven Degetto, says to receive international recognition as the best bank in Australia was a fantastic way to finish the financial year and reflected the hard work of Suncorp Bank’s broker partners and people.

“Over the past 12 months, Suncorp Bank has achieved a number of key milestones and this award is an acknowledgement that we are making the right decisions for our customers and our broker partners,” he said.

“Suncorp Bank prides itself on being at the forefront of the industry. We have achieved this position through our suite of diverse personal and business products, an investment in new digital capabilities, and our unwavering commitment to supporting Australians to achieve their financial goals.

“We have played to our strengths, and are thrilled to share this award with our customers, broker partners and communities across the country.”

Now in its 24th year, the Euromoney Award for Excellence is an independent award program which reviews and awards the leading financial institutions from across 100 countries around the world.

The award will be officially presented at the Euromoney Asia Awards for Excellence Dinner in Hong Kong on Thursday, 16 July.
