Dun & Bradstreet India hosts ‘BFSI Summit and Awards 2019’

The BFSI Summit and Awards witnessed the unveiling of the 11th edition of ‘India’s Leading BFSI Companies 2019’ and saw thought leaders from the BFSI sector deliberate on ‘Fintech and Beyond’.

Mumbai, 22 February 2019: Dun & Bradstreet (D&B), the world’s leading provider of global business information, today honored the exemplary performers of India’s BFSI sector at the annual ‘Dun & Bradstreet BFSI Summit and Awards 2019’.

State Bank of India was awarded India’s Leading Bank (Public) and HDFC was awarded India’s Leading Bank (Private); both retained their last year’s positions. CITI Bank clinched the laurel of India’s Leading Bank (Foreign) category.

Under the categories pertaining to the insurance sector, Life Insurance Corporation of India was adjudged as India's Leading Life Insurance Company (Public), and HDFC Life Insurance Company Limited was awarded India's Leading Life Insurance Company (Private) category. A total of 12 winners across 12 categories were announced.

Thought leaders from the industry deliberated in a panel based on the event’s theme “Fintech & Beyond”. Speaking at the event, Mr. Manish Sinha, Managing Director, Dun & Bradstreet India commented “If we miss the Fintech opportunity, over the next 20 years, there could be a potential loss of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) equivalent to the GDP we have created since independence. The remarkable metrics about the time and cost reduction in the delivery of financial services by Fintech shows how valuable Fintech has been. However, the greater story created by Fintech is about the financial accessibility. New segments of customers are now able to access financial products and break the barriers that have held back the financial development of India. Embracing Fintech will certainly have a high impact on the growth trajectory of India going forward.”
