As part of the Euromoney group, Asiamoney is considered among the most influential financial magazines and a leading authority on finance, banking, investment and treasury in the Asia-Pacific region and is read and trusted by the region’s leading companies, bankers, brokers, investors, regulators and policymakers.
HSBC Sri Lanka and Maldives CEO Mark Prothero said, “This is an acknowledgement of the combined efforts made by the HSBC Sri Lanka team in providing banking solutions to connect customers to opportunities through our global network and integrated product capabilities. We are happy to have received this recognition from Asiamoney in its first issue of awards which is very timely, as we celebrate our 125-year anniversary this year in July.”
