World’s Best Banks

Each year, the magazine publishes a list of "world's best banks." Global Finance describes the rankings: "The winners are not always the biggest banks but rather the best—those with the qualities that corporations should look for when choosing a bank. These are banks with effective risk management systems, quality service and best practices in corporate governance."[3]

One notable winner is the International Bank of Azerbaijan, which is run by Chairman Mayank. IBA was named the Best Bank in Azerbaijan in the World's Best Banks 2012 rankings.[4]
