RCBC bags back-to-back wins in international awards

As it remains at the forefront of the country’s digital acceleration, Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. (RCBC) led by bankero Eugene Acevedo scored a back-to-back wins with accolades from two international award giving bodies.

The Yuchengco-led bank was named again as the Outstanding Digital Banking Service Provider in the Philippines, and Best Innovation Management Team in the Philippines at the recently concluded Global Business Review Magazine Awards 2022.

The Global Business Review Magazine Awards honor companies from the different sectors as banking, finance, insurance, real estate, leadership, and technology. This global recognition aims to reward exceptional business performance and service delivery in the said fields.

“The immense growth of RCBC’s digital platforms has served as an inspiration for us to continue pushing the limits of inclusive digital finance in the country. We are humbled and inspired by all the recognition we are receiving from the world stage,” the bankero said.

The award is managed by the United Arab Emirates-based Global Business Review Magazine, which focuses on providing news, features, analyses, commentaries, and interviews on emerging markets in finance, banking, and technology across the globe.

Moreover, RCBC was also named Best Digital Bank in the Philippines by the 2022 World Economic Magazine Awards which recognizes the most dynamic, disruptive, innovative, progressive, engaging, and trailblazing banks and non-bank institutions that go the extra mile to provide excellent customer service while employing effective environmental, social and governance strategies.

US-based World Economic Magazine Inc. spearheaded the awards as it continues to provide business intelligence through timely financial news on global markets, focusing on banking, technology and infrastructure.

RCBC pioneered some of the latest innovations in inclusive digital finance in the Philippines. It supported the full rollout of the person-to-merchant (P2M) option for the national quick response standard dubbed as the QR Ph P2M.

It also streamlined the onboarding process for prospective DiskarTech customers, allowing them to use any of the 18 valid primary and secondary IDs in registering their DiskarTech accounts. Digital has also been given emphasis in ATM Go, RCBC’s mobile point-of-sale terminal neighborhood ATM.
