The awards are organised by the influential international Bloomberg Businessweek/Chinese Edition to recognise institutions that have shown exceptional performance and provided comprehensive protection for their investors and customers, facilitating competitiveness and credibility in banking and finance. Organisations are judged by a panel of academics and the Bloomberg Businessweek editorial board, and are assessed on four criteria: market performance, business growth, product development and business strategy. Outstanding financial institutions in banking and insurance as well as independent financial advisors, and security are acknowledged.
