Santander has the prize & # 39; Best bank in Portugal & # 39; received, which is awarded by the American magazine Global Finance under the & # 39; World & # 39; s Best Banks 2018 & # 39; awards.
The US publication prices are intended to recognize the institutions that "knew best how to respond to the needs of their customers in difficult markets, laying the foundation for success for the future" in 2017, the statement said.
This study included 150 countries and the criteria for determining the winners were based on indicators such as profitability, asset development, geographic dimension, strategic relationships, new company development and product innovation.
The opinion of bankers, managers and financial analysts from different countries was also a criterion for awarding the prize.
"Santander continues to work to support the development of companies and families, to continue digital transformation and to retain the trust of all its customers," said Antonio Vieira Monteiro, president of Santander Totta.
