Bank Audi sal - Audi Saradar Group was granted the “Best Bank in Lebanon” award at the 2012 Euromoney Awards for Excellence Middle East ceremony. The gala dinner, which took place on June 6, 2012 at the Madinat Jumeirah Conference Center – Dubai, was hosted by Euromoney and attended by prominent guests including top executives of regional banks and financial institutions. This prestigious recognition, one of a long series of awards acknowledging the Bank’s leadership in the domestic market, makes Bank Audi the most awarded Lebanese bank by Euromoney as “Best Bank in Lebanon” since 1996.

In recognising Bank Audi for the award of “Best Bank in Lebanon”, Euromoney editor Clive Horwood highlighted how “the Lebanese banking sector continues to do well, and Lebanese institutions know how to deal with a crisis. Bank Audi, in particular, has posted better profit growth than its major competitors, and continues to take advantage of opportunities on a regional level, as witnessed in the recent granting of a license to operate in Turkey.”
H.E. Mr. Raymond Audi, Chairman and General Manager of Bank Audi sal - Audi Saradar Group commented: “Within the context of adverse regional developments in 2011, the Bank adopted a prudential policy while continuing to foster its leadership in the domestic market and to finalise the establishment of a subsidiary in Turkey that provides promising growth prospects. Our results over the year highlight the Bank’s ability to maintain its earning power amidst tough operating conditions. Once again, this has been recognised by Euromoney in its renowned annual awards for Best Bank in Lebanon. We can only be proud of this acknowledgment which will stimulate us to go even farther.”
