The Vietnam Export-Import Bank (Eximbank) has won the “Best Bank in Vietnam 2013” Award of Euromoney, the world’s leading financial magazine.

The honour was presented by Marcus H. Langston, Regional Head-Asia of Euromoney, at a ceremony in Hanoi on August 14.

The magazine has highly valued Eximbank’s position in the domestic and regional financial market through a survey on its market capitalisation rate, revenue, asset and pretax profits over the past year.

It was the high growth rate that helps Eximbank become the best bank in Vietnam as voted by Euromoney this year, Marcus H. Langston said.

In May this year, the bank was also awarded the Best Managed Bank in Vietnam 2013 and the Asian Banker Leadership Achievement Award by the Asian Banker magazine.

Eximbank has increased the owner’ equity to 15 trillion VND (722 million USD) from 13.3 trillion VND in 2010.-VNA
