Knowing how busy bankers are and how focus they are on both BAU and their top projects, I am always intrigued with the selection process, nominations and judging for those ‘global contests’ sponsored by vendors.

So, are the winners of social media banking category worthy of the Global Finance Award?  I invite you to watch my short video where I share my views about that.

So, in your opinion, how accurate are those awards?  Any major misses in your category? Did you even enter the contest?

  1. Hi Christophe – good video. Real shame that Global Finance don’t share any of their methodology or go into more detail about why certain banks won. Really devalues what would otherwise be great information/research and leaves you wondering how many of the winners also happen to be Infosys clients (Infosys were the judges)
