A total of 14 awards were given to different banks and financial institutions. 

This year, Metrobank has been receiving accolades from acclaimed international award-giving bodies and Philippine government agencies. The Bank is named as the Strongest Bank by The Asian Banker for the third consecutive year – a feat for any bank in the Philippines.

Meanwhile, at home, the Bureau of the Treasury named Metrobank as the Top Market Maker for 2022 and 2023, besting other government securities eligible dealers, for its efforts in helping the national government to meet its financing requirements and for supporting the initiatives of the National Treasury in enhancing the access of Filipinos to investment opportunities. Metrobank was also handed the “Cesar E.A. Virata Award” under the Bank Category for the ninth year and six other Trading Awards because of its exceptional performance on fixed-income securities trading at the recently held 2023 Philippine Dealing System Awards Night.
