Baiduri Bank began the New Year winning two awards, further cementing its position as Brunei Darussalam’s leading conventional bank.
It was recognised as Best Banking Group for 2021 and Best in Corporate Governance & CSR by International Investor, a London-based online publication which provides insights, news and visual informative pieces.
Baiduri Bank CEO Ti Eng Hui said, “This recognition from the International Investor is in line with the bank’s vision of being the leading and preferred financial partner in Brunei alongside our commitment to enrich, engage and empower the communities we serve.”
He added, “With significant changes in the regulatory and market environment in recent years and more anticipated changes to come, we have updated our organisational structure to focus more on key areas such as corporate governance and risk management, improve accountability and strengthen our capabilities to deliver on our strategic goals.”
In better positioning itself for sustainable growth and to provide better customer experience, Baiduri Bank has embarked on various initiatives such as the enhancement of their digital banking platforms.
The bank has also invested heavily in the development and well-being of its employees, through HR digitalisation efforts, partnerships with international learning solution providers and its recently launched Employee Wellness Initiative, among others.
Baiduri Bank also owns a number of social, economic and environmental initiatives. Among them are the annual Baiduri Masters, a golf fundraiser to help the differently abled, a giveback campaign during Ramadhan for the underprivileged as well as the Baiduri Capital Investment Challenge, a six-month challenge to cultivate and raise awareness on investments, capital markets services and securities trading while increasing investment literacy among the youth and the public.
