The renowned World Finance Magazine has named Leumi “Best Banking Group in Israel” for the second year in a row.
Unlike other financial magazines whose award winners are chosen by committees and professionals, World Finance winners are chosen by its readership. Leumi was chosen on the basis of its focus on its customer management strategy combined with its conservative risk-taking policy. Readers also mentioned their choice stemmed from the Group’s investment in digital banking, which offers advanced mobile and Internet products.
Leumi’s CEO and President, Ms. Rakefet Russak-Aminoach, said in response to the award, "Since its founding 110 years ago, Leumi has established itself as the leading corporation in the banking system in retail, corporate, commercial and private banking. In addition, we have been forerunners in recent years in the trend of technological and digital banking in Israel. This award, granted to us by World Finance Magazine readers, further testifies to the good work we do and the fine reputation we continue to enjoy worldwide."
World Finance Magazine is published every two months and includes analysts’ reviews of the global economy, particularly on financial topics such as banking, investments and the capital markets.
Since 2007, World Finance has been granting awards in various financial categories. In 2011, Leumi won the “Israeli Company of the Decade (2000-2010)” award. The magazine also stressed Leumi’s commitment to the development and advancement of technology, both within the system and for the benefit of its customers.
