(VEN) - Citi swept the country awards in the Corporate/Institutional Digital Bank category, winning 15 accolades for Vietnam, Australia, Bangladesh, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Philippines and Thailand.  

In the category for World’s Best Corporate/Institutional Digital Banks in Asia Pacific, Citi won five regional sub-category awards, including Most Innovative Digital Bank, Best Online Cash Management, Best Online Treasury Services, Best in Mobile Banking and Best Mobile Banking App.

“We are honoured to be recognized by Global Finance for our excellence in digital banking for corporate and institutional clients. Being truly digital is fundamental to our strategy. We continuously invest in the next generation of technology, intuitive user interfaces and advanced online analytics, and are early adopters in exciting areas such as robotics, predictive analytics, blockchain distributed ledger technologies, and digital identity solutions. Winning these awards would not have been possible without our clients, as we have a very client-centric approach to innovation and actively engage with our clients to co-create innovative and differentiated solutions that are relevant to them,” saidRajesh Mehta, Citi’s Asia Pacific Head of Treasury and Trade Solutions (TTS).

Citi’s TTS business has been staying at the forefront of innovation with the introduction of a wide range of leading solutions. This included the launch of the CitiConnect API solution for treasury services, helping our clients leverage the full value of our API capabilities for their benefit, as well as the launch of a unique capability for digital advisory through the Connectivity Module of Citi Interactive Solutions.

In addition, MobilePass was launched across 11 markets in Asia; this first-in-market mobile password solution eliminates the need for corporate users to carry physical tokens for login when accessing their online banking accounts on desktop, mobile or tablet.
