AmInvestment Bank was named “Best Local Private Bank” in Malaysia in the recent Euromoney Private Banking Poll 2007.

AmInvestment Bank’s Private Banking division was also named provider of the “Best Private Banking Services Overall” in Malaysia, coming in together with HSBC at the top spot.

The results of the poll were announced on 8 January 2007, the Ambank group said in a statement here on 16 January 2007.

The Euromoney Private Banking Poll is the only comprehensive database of wealth management covering 994 institutions in 55 countries.

The Euromoney Private Banking Poll asked private banks in Malaysia to identify the companies that they admire as the top providers of both competitive and non-competitive services.

The private banks then nominated their peers that they thought were the best, second, and third in Malaysia.

AmInvestment Bank (formerly AmMerchant Bank) is part of AmInvestment Bank Group, one of Malaysia’s leading investment banking groups.
