Best Corporate Client Bank 2020: Commerzbank wins the award again

In a recent survey conducted among around 1,000 CFOs and treasurers, FINANCE magazine, one of the leading financial magazines in germany, set out to determine the best corporate client bank. As in last year’s survey, Commerzbank came out top, even increasing its lead over the competition.

Commerzbank further expanded its leading edge in trade and export financing, which is important to small and medium-sized enterprises, and was the top bank in this category (36%). No other bank surpassed Commerzbank in the “Best lending/Traditional financing” category, where it was the clear leader for just under 28% of corporate clients. The corporate clients surveyed responded particularly positively to the question of which bank has the strongest foothold in the SME segment: as in last year’s survey, Commerzbank earned the highest number of votes (65%). The question of which bank is the most popular principal bank delivered convincing results: 76% of companies count Commerzbank among their principal banks. The Bank’s leading positions in key categories included a further area: digitalisation. Commerzbank’s digitalisation strategy was rated “very good” by 28% of respondents.
