NEW YORK, August 25, 2015 — Global Finance is proud to present the winners of the 8th annual Stars of China Awards, honoring the best domestic and foreign banks and RMB service providers operating in China.

Stars Of China 2015

A full list of the winners appears on the following pages and will be published in the November issue. The Stars of China special report will include Global Finance’s exclusive ranking of the Safest Banks in China. It will also include an in-depth look at the success stories behind the winners and their various approaches to business excellence in the unique environment of the People’s Republic. All winners will be recognized at an awards ceremony at the Westin Hotel in Beijing on November 17.

China is going through an historic transition, rebalancing drivers in its economy away from investment and toward consumption. Its market, the most dynamic in the world, has entered a new phase. As a consequence, resilient, nimble and innovative banks and businesses have emerged in the People’s Republic, establishing new avenues to growth and stepping onto the world stage.

Global Finance’s Stars of China Awards 2015 honor the leaders in their respective fields, and the report will explain how they are building China’s future.
“China has long been a key growth driver for global markets. With fears rising over signs of a slowdown in the country and with China’s policymakers enacting a surprise devaluation of the currency in mid-August, global markets and companies are keeping a close eye on how this will play out,” said Joseph D. Giarraputo, Publisher and Editorial Director of Global Finance.

“It is never more critical than during times of volatility that companies ensure they are partnering with secure and sound financial institutions. The firms that make our list of the Stars Of China are the best at what they do – and know how to help clients weather stormy seas.”
