As testament to its standing as a leading shariah compliant financial institution, BNI Syariah was awarded the 'Most Improved Islamic Bank' award at the Global Islamic Finance Awards 2016 (GIFA) event, which was held at Fairmont Hotel in Jakarta. The event was attended by BNI Syariah's President Director, Mr Imam Teguh Saptono as well as prominent local and international Islamic financial institutions. In winning this award, BNI Syariah has demonstrated its commitment to the continuous advancements of Indonesia’s shariah banking sector.
Now running into its 6th consecutive year, GIFA aims to recognise and celebrate the contributions of individuals and institutions in the Islamic financial services industry. GIFA also took into consideration a number of factors upon determining award winners such as the breadth and depth of the products and services offered, contribution to the growth of Islamic finance through innovative applications of shariah principles, the provision of products and services that can be utilised by a diverse range of local as well as international customers, and the promotion of growth towards the shariah finance industry on a national and global level.
In winning this award, BNI Syariah showcased its adeptness in catering to the financial requirements of Indonesia’s increasingly urbanised demographic through its concept of becoming a ‘one-stop shop’ financial institution. This creates an even greater scope for BNI Syariah’s future success and illustrates the bank’s core values that are largely driven by the principle of Hasanah.
