FGB, one of the leading banks in the UAE, took home seven 2015 Banker Middle East UAE Product Awards after a presentation ceremony which was recently held in Dubai.
FGB faced stiff competition from 23 other UAE banks and financial service providers in this year’s awards, coming out on top with the largest haul of awards amongst its competitors.
A wide range of FGB’s products and services were recognised, with the bank scooping awards in the ‘Best Call Centre’, ‘Best Credit Card’, ‘Best Personal Loan’, ‘Best Wealth Management Service/Proposition,’ ‘Best Offshore Wealth Proposition’ and ‘Best Deposit Account Product’ categories. FGB also won the ‘Best Bancassurance Product’ award for the second year in a row.
The Banker Middle East Product Awards programme, organised by CPI Financial, is a peer vote process designed to identify the best products and services available in the UAE banking sector, rewarding distinction and raising standards across the country.
Hana Al Rostamani, Head of the Consumer Banking Group at FGB, said: “Our customers are at the heart of everything we do as a bank and we’re consistently focused on enhancing their experiences with us and developing innovative products and services which meet their needs. These awards are testament to this commitment and we appreciate this recognition of the bank’s achievements from our peers. Moving forward, we will continue to strengthen our offering as we strive to always ‘Be First’ for customers, both in the UAE and overseas.”
FGB has also recently won two Interactive Media Awards for its My FGB Card and FGB Wealth websites. The bank won awards in the ‘Best in Class’ and ‘Outstanding Achievement’ banking categories, respectively. The Interactive Media Awards, organised by the Interactive Media Council, are designed to recognise high standards of excellence in website design and development and celebrate the outstanding achievements of both individuals and organisations.
The news follows another recent award-win for the bank at the 2015 MENA Insurance Awards ceremony, where it was named ‘Most Innovative Service Provider’ earlier this year.
