Adding to its growing prestige, Sri Lanka’s most innovative bank, HNB PLC, was presented with a total of four awards at the internationally acclaimed Asiamoney Best Bank Awards 2019.

Organised with a view to showcasing excellence among leading banks in the Asia Pacific region, this year’s awards were presented following stringent evaluation of financial performance and strategic business models together with customer and competitor feedback.

This year, the continuing success of HNB in driving financial inclusion, socio-economic empowerment, and supporting entrepreneurial development helped push HNB ahead of the competition to be declared Best Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) Bank and Best CSR Bank in Sri Lanka.

HNB Deputy General Manager – SME & Midmarket Jude Fernando stated that "There is a great deal that separates HNB’s approach to SME banking from our peers. As one of the first private sector banks to enter the field, HNB’s strategy focuses on delivering immediate and lasting value to SME customers while providing extensively personalized support over the long-term. In this manner we are able to guide SMEs as they grow, and become thriving members of Sri Lanka’s established corporate sector."

Each year, HNB adds many new services that cater specifically to its clientele, and tweaks and improves a dozen more. HNB boasts 10 hubs for small enterprises dotted around the country, employing 39 dedicated relationship managers and serving 51,000 SMEs.
