Alliance Bank Malaysia Berhad (Alliance Bank or “Bank”) was named the “Best SME Bank” in Asia Pacific, Gulf region & Africa for 2013 by the prestigious Asian Banker at the Excellence in Retail Financial Services International Awards 2013 held in Seoul, South Korea.

This is the first time a Malaysian bank is being acknowledged with this international award for our leading SME Banking business model and we would like to thank all our customers and the business community for your continuous support.

The award is a great recognition from the Asian Pacific’s banking community that Alliance Bank’s proactive customer relationship management, a strong program lending risk model, and innovative product development, has allowed the Bank to differentiate itself in the Malaysian SME segment.

The Asian Banker is a leading provider of strategic business intelligence for the financial services industry. The Excellence in Retail Financial Services Programme was instituted in 2001 to recognise the pursuit of excellence amongst retail financial institutions in the region. For the 2013 awards, more than 160 retail financial institutions from countries in the Asia Pacific, Central Asia, the Gulf region and Africa were assessed in detail by The Asian Banker alongside an international panel of judges. The Programme is predicated by a Core Belief that “a well-run bank is one that demonstrates a long term, sustainable, profitable franchise with the customer as its core proposition.”
