First Abu Dhabi Bank (FAB), the UAE’s largest bank and one of the world’s largest financial institutions, has been recognised as the ‘Best Trade Finance Bank in MENA’ at the GTR Leaders in Trade 2016 awards. FAB received the award at a ceremony which was recently held in London.
The GTR Leaders in Trade Awards, organised by Global Trade Review (GTR) magazine, highlight excellence in the trade, commodity, supply chain and export finance markets.
Commenting on the award, Deputy Group CEO and Acting Group Head of Corporate and Investment Banking, André Sayegh, said: “We are very proud to have won this prestigious award and to be recognised as the ‘Best Trade Finance Bank in MENA’. It is a testament to the solid transaction banking proposition we have at FAB across cash and trade, and we will continue to work jointly with our clients to grow stronger through an extensive range of market-leading products, channel capabilities and specialised teams.”
Global Trade Review was established in 2002 and is one of the world’s leading news sources, publishers and event organisers for the global trade, commodity and export finance markets.
FAB has received a number of awards and recognitions since FGB and NBAD merged earlier this year. The awards are based on the outstanding achievements and accomplishments of both banks. FAB is proud to carry the legacies of two of the UAE’s leading financial institutions, as we celebrate our new joint identity and our vision to grow stronger.
