BNP Paribas S.A. – Sofia Branch was named “Best Foreign Bank Branch” by “Association Bank of the Year”. The assessment is based on public information for the banks generated and gathered from the Bulgarian National Bank. The prize is awarded to BNP Paribas for second year in a row.
“I am very pleased that BNP Paribas Bulgaria was voted Best Foreign Bank branch in Bulgaria for the second consecutive year. This is yet another recognition of our strong market position, the superior client service we collectively deliver, our drive for innovation, our commitment to Bulgaria and the responsible way of doing business in the country.”, said Hans Broucke, Country Head of BNP Paribas for Bulgaria.
BNP Paribas operates in Bulgaria since 1994 and is mostly known on the local market as corporate and institutional bank. However, in 2013 BNP Paribas expanded its activity on the retail market launching the first of its kind entirely online depositing system.
The current recognition in Bulgaria complements numerous international awards received by BNP Paribas Group in the course of the year, the most prestigious being “World’s Best Bank” for 2016 by Euromoney, a leading global financial publication, in its prestigious annual Awards for Excellence.
