House of the Year, Malaysia – CIMB

Jennifer Yong, CIMB

CIMB retains the award for Malaysia house of the year for the ninth year running despite mounting competition from local rivals, and internationals pushing into the Malaysian market. In part, the award recognises the bank's continued local dominance across a range of business lines, maintaining its position as the number one derivatives issuer in Malaysia. CIMB traded over 123 billion ringgit ($38 billion) of derivatives from July 2012 to June 2013, up from 114 billion ringgit the previous year.
