ABN AMRO also received the awards for ‘Best Bank in the Netherlands’ and ‘Best Investment Bank for the Netherlands’, as well as the ‘Best Bank Transformation award for Western Europe’.

Its success is due to a targeted business approach, focusing on the Netherlands, private banking and international commodities and transport’.
