Finding The Value in Green Banking

East & Partners Global Insight report series explores key issues identified by institutional banking customers as part of the group’s long running core research programs including Transaction Banking, Credit, Trade Finance, Business FX, Equipment Finance, Merchant Payments and Customer Sentiment.

This unique global analysis provides timely ‘voice of the customer’ insights around which banks are getting it right, what’s at risk for those failing, who’s driving the change and how ‘going green’ is impacting banking behaviour of the world’s biggest companies.

The purpose of this report is to identify and guide East’s clients, including banks, financial services providers, regulators, and legislators on key value opportunities, market gaps and competitive advantages emerging within the global institutional banking market.

Direct interviews were conducted with the top 100 revenue ranked corporates in each of eight countries – Australia, Canada, China, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the USA. All interviews were conducted on a direct basis with the individual responsible for the treasury and banking function. CFOs and corporate treasurers from 752 out of a defined population of 800 institutional enterprises with annual turnover of US$725m plus participated in the research without incentive.

Key decision makers including CFOs and corporate treasurers from 752 out of a defined population of 800 institutional enterprises with annual turnover of US$725 million or greater participated in the research without incentive, including an even weighting of multinational corporations (MNCs) and major domestic enterprises.
