Top financial institutions recognised at DBM Australian Financial Awards

MEDIA RELEASE: March 17 2022: The winners of the fourth, annual DBM Australian Financial Awards have been revealed.

Unlike other awards programs, the DBM Awards are determined by over 80,000 Australian consumers and business owners while conducting our DBM Atlas survey. This is the largest financial services research program in the country, collecting feedback on the experiences of customers with their financial institutions.

“The last 12 months (and indeed the past 2 years) have really shown how financial institutions have supported customers during challenging times,” said Kipling Zubevich, CEO of DBM Consultants.

“As we continue to navigate an uncertain world, we believe it is imperative to recognise the achievements of Australian financial institutions.
“Congratulations to all finalists and winners at this year’s awards!”
