3. Will institutions that do not make a submission be considered?
We encourage all financial institutions to make submissions. However, regardless of your submission, The Asian Banker makes our own assessment based on previous interviews, industry observations and our own research. Institutions that do not make submissions risk not having a comprehensive description of their initiatives fully considered, but if we find worthy institutions, we will start our own enquiries.
