Corporate-Service Stars: Transaction Banking Awards Ceremony 2022

The annual Global Finance Transaction Banking Awards honor the banks delivering the best in corporate financial services.

Global Finance hosted its annual Transaction Banking Awards ceremony in October, alongside the annual Sibos conference, held this year in Amsterdam. Hot topics for 2023, including payments, security and tokenization, showed the continuing impact of the Covid-driven digital acceleration.

The Global Finance event provided an opportunity to celebrate in person the achievements of those winning our 2022 awards for Best Transaction Banking, Best Sub-custodians and Best Treasury & Cash Management Providers.
