KEB wins top private bank award
The country’s No.1 commercial bank by asset won the prize following Euromoney’s annual survey on private banking and wealth management institutions. Some 450 financial institutions from 90 countries across the globe participated in the survey.
This year marks the 13th anniversary of the survey. KEB Hana Bank has held the top position for nine years.
Before the merger of the two institutions last year, Hana Bank specialized in private banking services, while Korea Exchange Bank (KEB) had strengths in the foreign exchange services with a large overseas network.
In the latest survey, the bank came out on top in seven out of 12 categories, including advisory services for asset inheritance, technological innovation and asset management service.
“By turning all employees into competitive private bankers, we will provide best-quality asset management services at home and abroad,” said Ham Young-joo, CEO of KEB Hana Bank at the award ceremony in London.
The bank is currently providing private banking services under the name of “Happiness Partner” for ordinary customers at all branches.
