There will be a greater focus on growth, maintaining overall credit quality, managing costs, enhancing our client relationships and investing in our employees.”
The Banker, which is a part of the Financial Times Group publishing house, does not focus on figures alone, but rather looks for evidence of banks raising the bar for their local industries in the past twelve months, whether by using new technology or coming up with innovative, cost-efficient ways of expanding their businesses.

Nikia Chrisite, CIBC First Caribbean’s Marketing Manager, said receiving the Bank of the Year award reflects CIBC FirstCaribbean’s values of trust, teamwork and accountability, and deserves celebration.
“At CIBC FirstCaribbean, we pay special attention to our clients, build on our technology base to create a modern digital experience, simplify the way we do business and invest in our people. This recognition by The Banker reflects what is being done to keep CIBC FirstCaribbean as the best choice for banking services.”
