The Asian Banker Regional Leadership Awards

The regional leadership awards celebrate vision and achievement in four key areas that are crucial for annual recognition. They represent the core top-level values of financial services--leadership, governance, and transparency--that are needed on a constant basis in financial services and are awarded annually. In addition, there is another award that takes the previous criteria but focuses specifically on a particular group of individuals that provide the most powerful source of ideas and passion: women in the financial services industry.

These awards were presented by Senator Paul Sarbanes, author of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and former chairman, U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs and Mr David Eldon, former chairman, The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation and current chairman, Dubai International Financial Centre Authority.
