For the first time in the three-year history of the ranking, SEB is not only the leading corporate bank in Sweden but also in the Nordic region in TNS Sifo Prospera's Corporate Banking 2012 Nordics client survey. SEB is also the bank in the Nordics most recommended by its clients.
"Over the last three years, SEB has invested in improving our service and our holistic offering to Nordic clients outside of Sweden. This has resulted in 300 new clients and a clear position as the Nordic corporate bank. Our leading position in Sweden has been strengthened further the past year. This survey is confirmation that our clients value our business model, and strengthens us even further in our ambition to establish a long-term partnership with our clients," says Magnus Carlsson, head of SEB's Merchant Banking division.
Prospera's Corporate Banking 2012 Nordics survey is based on interviews with CFOs, treasurers and other key positions at 262 large corporates in the region.
