Union Bank of the Philippines (UnionBank), one of Southeast Asia’s leading companies in banking and finance hold its second “Partners Appreciation Night” last August 2, 2019 and  awarded seven of its partners for their outstanding contribution to the bank’s digital transformation.

The UnionBank’s annual appreciation night is intended to show the bank’s gratitude to its vendors who have elevated the level of engagement from merely vendor-vendee relationship to one of openness, collaboration and agility, as well as shared the bank’s purpose and values of integrity, magis and ubuntu.

“UnionBank’s domain knowledge and expertise in complex financial services as well as access to money and capital markets, combined with your core competencies in specific technologies and ecosystems, have produced not just innovative financial solutions but also unique customer experiences, acknowledged by both domestic and international communities,” UnionBank chairman Dr. Justo Ortiz said in his welcome remarks.
