FA's Platinum Awards: Part One

FinanceAsia celebrates its 20th anniversary by honouring the outstanding banks and financial institutions of the past two decades.

FinanceAsia is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and is devoting its July edition to the landmark, looking back over the past two, tumultuous decades for the industry in the region.

As part of the celebration, we have pored over our awards and polls plus the financial data we have accumulated over the past 20 years to make a series of Platinum Awards to those financial institutions and corporations that have consistently provided quality and innovation to their clients over this time.

Today, we honour the banks and financial institutions that have made the biggest difference in the countries we cover over the past two decades. In the second part of our awards, we will look at the best companies by sector and by country over the years since 1996, based on FinanceAsia's annual Asia's Best Companies poll (with a weighting towards recent successes).
